Concord Eye-Q 5062AF
Review Date: October 8th 2004
(out of 5 stars)
On paper the Concord Eye-Q 5062AF promises much for a very low cost. 5 megapixels, 1.8" LCD screen, movies with sound, all for just $199. In reality the camera doesn't really deliver on any of its promises. Image quality is distinctly average, the LCD screen and speed of the camera can only be described as "slow to respond", and the 6x digital zoom does not make up for the lack of an optical zoom lens. This is very much a camera that has been designed around that expensive 5 megapixel CCD, which is fine if that is the only feature that you require, but not so great if you actually want a camera that is easy to use with good results. Sacrifices have been made in order to meet the aggressive price-point, and in my view those sacrifices are just too great. The Concord Eye-Q 5062AF unfortunately proves that you never get something for nothing.
