Never judge a book by its cover. That old adage rings true in the case of this little (well, not that little) digital camera. Packing a decent 3.2 MegaPixel CCD, this so-called entry level camera has enough advanced features to impress even the more sophisticated non-professional photographer.
I recently decided to invest in my first digital camera. After enormous amounts of research, testing, comparison shopping, hmm-ing and haw-ing, I decided on the camera I wanted. It proved very elusive to me here in Canada, so I ended up shopping on eBay, and picking it up for an incredible price from an American seller.
The reason I got such a steal, I believe, is the same reason for my initial trepidation with this camera, and no doubt the same reason you're already questioning the validity of my opinion. You, as well as others (including myself) see the name Toshiba and the following thought flashes through your immensely powerful cerebellum: "Hey, Toshiba makes wonderful electronics, but how do they know a camera from a hole in the wall?"
Well, it would seem that when the folks at Toshiba conceptualized the creation of their own digital cameras, they thought precisely the same thing. And it appears that the decision was made to stick to what they're good at, the electronics, and let someone else worry about the camera aspect. That is why this ugly duckling has the features and reliability you would expect from Toshiba, and a very crisp image thanks to a lens provided by none other than the photography experts at Canon.
So, now that I have quelled your fear of the unknown, I will move into the specs & features, and then my own humble opinion of the pros and cons. And as a bonus I'll even throw in a few photographs taken at the car show Frank Manno mentioned in the newsletter of February 25th.
