    Jenoptik 8 Megapixel Camera Review

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    I was surprised to see the Jenoptik JD 8.0z3 Easyshot camera in the sub 200 price range, especially as it supports a massive 8 Megapixel resolution. I was so surprised in fact that I bought one to see whether it was actually any good.


    Jenoptik is an international corporation formed in 1996 and it has a history of innovation at a low cost; this time last year for example, they were celebrating the launch of the first 5 MP digital cameras in the sub $100 price barrier. The EasyShot range, which the JD 8.0Z3 is a part of, was also unveiled this time last year (at the Photo Marketing Association Trade Show) and is advertised as "the ultimate family-friendly popular digital cameras." 

    The camera is packaged with a protective pouch with belt-clip, a wrist strap, a USB device cable, an AV output cable, the utility CD, a packet of AA batteries and the inevitable documentation.  Instead of providing the full manual in the box, Jenoptik provide a user-friendly quick-start guide that can be quickly flicked through to gain a rough idea of the most useful features.  The full manual is then provided on the CD in PDF format, which I think is a good idea, and it means you can get on with using the camera almost as soon as it's out of the protective plastic bag. There's no need to trawl through a telephone directory-sized manual.  Additionally, the documentation includes the warranty, which covers the product against manufacturing defects or mechanical failure for two years.

    Also included on the CD is a copy of ArcSoft's PhotoImpression 2000, Acrobat reader 6 so that you can view the full manual, a copy of Windows Media Player 9 and the DivX codec in order to view the mpeg4 standard video that the camera can capture, Windows XP drivers and the driver and software for Mac OS9 & OSX.  In reality, the Windows XP drivers from the CD were not even needed, I just connected the camera to my desktop machine and it worked straight away.


    Aesthetically, the camera is almost perfect; it's compact, stylish and looks great.  Being black really makes it stand out from the standard aluminum finish of most other consumer cameras around at the most and gives it a slightly professional, business appearance.
