Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The high-resolution lens, high-speed and high-precision autofocus, and advanced program autoexposure of the Toshiba PDR-M25 ensures that images are received in pristine condition before being recorded using the camera's 1,792 x 1,200 pixels. Recording is done via a 2.2-megapixel Charge Coupled Device (CCD). The result is a high level of expression and color reproduction with a sharpness and clarity comparable to conventional 35mm photography. A 896 x 600 pixel recording size is also available in order to allow the easy download of images for computers or use on the Internet.

The PDR-M25 stands out from the crowd with the addition of the digital 2x zoom and an optical 3x zoom lens, equivalent to a 35-114mm lens. Along with smooth zooming between wide-angle and telephoto settings--at the touch of a single button--the PDR-M25 helps you push the boundaries of digital creativity.

Other features:

  • Compatible with SmartMedia memory cards (8 MB SmartMedia card included)
  • Powered by 4 AA batteries (alkaline included; compatible with rechargeable NiMH and Lithium batteries)
  • Self-timer with settings from 2 to 10 seconds
  • Built-in flash
  • 1.5-inch LCD monitor
  • Three compression settings: fine, normal, and basic
  • Resolution for still images: 1,792 x 1,200; 896 x 600 pixels

I got this camera as a gift, and researched it online to see if it was worth keeping. I looked here at amazon.com, and also at [another web site]. After reading the reviews, I had mixed feelings, but at [dollar amount] it's not a bad little camera. I bought rechargeable Nickle-Metal-Hydride(NiMH) batteries to try and quench this camrea's power appetite, but was still defeated. On the highest mega-pixle setting(2.2mp), I can take about 10 pictures or so before the batteries run out. I can only get about 7 pictures on the included 8meg scan disk, so you constantly have to download your pictures to your computer. A quick solution to this is to purchase a larger scan disk card. I had also taken a few pictures, 60 or so, on the 1.1 mega-pixle setting, and had only used 1 out of 3 battery marks. This required a great deal of downloading, but it is very quick to download. This camera overall is pretty good for the price, and since I'm not looking for something to take professional pictures with, it is great for me. If you purchase this camera, I do suggest your purchase rechargeable NiMH batteries(I think I will purchase another set of 4), a charger to charge the batteries(make sure it is NiMH compatable), and a larger scan disk card.

I spent a lot of time looking at reviews and comparing models before I bought this camera back in March. The picture quality is almost unparalleled in it's price range. It is fairly easy to learn,and it comes with a quality no frills photo editing software (Image Expert). Toshiba provides excellent customer support. I used it extensively for a Windows related problem (I ultimately found out the problem was with my computer not the camera/software).
I strongly recommend getting NI-MH rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries only last a few hours. An 8MB Smart Media card is ok to start with, but will only hold 7 high quality images.
The only drawback I have found after 3 months of almost daily use, is the design of the camera. It is boxy and somewhat difficult to maneuver. It took me longer to get used to it than any other camera I have owned.
Overall this camera is an excellent buy, and makes a good first time digital camera.

We purchased the first PDR-M25 on 5/16. It lasted for 31 days, and then it would not turn on. Toshiba exchanged it for another camera (same model). When the replacement came, it would NOT take a picture when it first came out of the box. Then it took a few pictures, and then seized up again and the shutter button would not work. Toshiba sent another camera, same model, and it lasted 61 days before it refused to focus properly and the flash got out of sync with the shutter. I am awaiting camera #4, as Toshiba refused to send my money back.

Having never used a digital camera previously, I have to say using this camera has been nothing but easy and fun. The photos can be effortlessly transferred to your PC via usb port to JPEG format. The enclosed IMAGE EXPERT software is also very user friendly. While the camera's auto-focus does have some difficulty getting the shot in low (artificial) light settings, the overall results are quite good. For example the outdoor daylight shots without the use of flash are amazing. Also the 3x optical zoom lets you get up to three inches away from your subject for crisp, clear controlled exposures. (This is ideal for internet auctions). The flash gives you the option for red-eye reduction as well. Another really fun feature is having the ability to view your pics via sideshow on your TV set. (This can be used to video tape the pictures onto a VHS tape to mail to friends/ family members who do not have a computer). I strongly suggest picking up the Toshiba PDR-ACM1A AC Adapter (sold separately through Toshiba). This way you needn't worry about drained batteries when transferring images to PC, or while taking photos when at home.) Otherwise, you could just keep a stockpile of alkalines on hand, or pick up a rechargable set of batteries. A great first-time (Macintosh compatible) digital camera!
