Camera Straightforwarda

Take a picture; it will last longer! Well, maybe not, if you're talking about taking a picture of fossils or something. But look, we're not here to talk about fossils; we're here to sell cameras. Now the only question is, are you man enough to buy one?

The Sony camera DSCW620 is $59 on bestbuy.com, so this isnt woot worthy!

The FreeStyle is great. It's compatible with GoPro mounts so finding things like a suction cup to stick it to your windshield is easy.
It's very stable when properly mounted. (note: I left the sound in the video so people can get a feel for what it actually captures)

Woot tries to peddle this camera every few weeks, and every time someone checks it out on amazon and reminds the community that it's not worth buying.

Mostly good reviews on the Freestyle. The poor reviews are mainly due to slow customer support and poor audio quality in certain situations (in car).

I'm seriously considering picking one of these up as a dashcam. For $100 seems like a great alternative to a GoPro which I've been toying with purchasing for a while. Currently $158 on amazon.

I bought the Pentax Q a month ago, and it's a great camera. There's more than a little novelty in the size: it's TINY. So tiny it's firmly in what-is-wrong-with-you territory. When a big dude like me wears it with the neck strap it looks like some kind of demented DSLR necklace.

But the real deal is the photo quality, which is unreasonably good. It's not DSLR-class-excellent (due to the physics of the smaller sensor) but the improved sensor technology means the image quality is firmly in the same class as micro4/3 and the like, and far better than any ~12mp point-n-shoot.

And them I'm back to the giggle-worthy size. I remember the old adage that 'the best camera is the one you take with you' and this firmy fits the bill. I can get the Pentax Q body, with the prime, 02 zoom, and wide/toy lens, charger, extra battery -- all in the same space as my old K1000 with a standard lens. I put the whole kit in a sandwich box, and keep it in the front pocket of my work bag.

Just remember to update the firmware from 1.01 to 1.10 from here to get most of the Q->Q10 improvements:

I bought one and the battery isn't any good. It works when plugged into an outlet, but not when unplugged. No red light, etc.First time I've had a problem with a Woot purchase.
