My new digital camera...

A couple of weeks back, I lost my cell phone. I was very sad as I had been using it for a long time and had a wish to keep it all life with me. But, things did not turn up my way. Immediately, I started searching to buy a new cellphone. In the process, I saw a nice digital camera. They called it a credit card camera. It looked very pretty and very small. No one can even believe that it is a digital camera. Above that, its price tag was just Rs 999. And this attracted me. I thought, I shall buy this camera and worry about the cellphone later.

Having seen all this for just Rs 999, I was delighted. Further, it can also be used as a web camera on the computer too. This was another value addition as I had no web camera with me

I decided to buy and amso bought is immediately

Due to certain reasons, I got the camera a little late from the seller. I showed it to the people and their eyes couldnt believe it. I wanted to take a few quick snaps with people. However, I could not operate it as it had to be charged before use

I have now charged the camera and started using it. The photos are of good quality. Here are a couple of images taken from the camera. Definitely, its a good buy at Rs 999. If you too wish to buy it, visit the shop of the seller in eBay India at

That was all about the credit card digital camera
