Short-form review posted for Toshiba PDR-3310!|
(Friday, October 25, 2002 - 01:44 EDT)
Toshiba has generally made their name with budget-priced full sized digicam models, so the stylish, metal-bodied 3.2-megapixel PDR-3310 is a bit of a departure for them.
Based on what I saw of the case design and menu layout, this looks like a Kyocera S4 with a 3.2-megapixel sensor, instead of the S4's 4-megapixel chip. While we liked the compact size, clean styling, and mostly-metal case design of the 3310 a great deal, the camera came up a little short in several other areas. Resolution-wise, it turned in a performance closer to many two megapixel models, and its battery life was quite short. (60 minutes in the worst-case power drain mode.)
Perhaps a good choice if you're looking for an aggressive price on a subcompact digicam (Toshiba appears to be aiming for pretty low street prices with this model), and don't need to print larger than about 5x7 inches. Check it out!
