The eyemodule digital camera is a great accessory for your Handspring Visor or Visor Deluxe.

That said, the resolution isn't very good. Forget taking pictures of people from beyond 10 feet -- 5 feet if you want to see facial expressions. Forget taking pictures in rooms with uneven lighting. Don't even think about printing the pictures, unless they are real close-ups. It just doesn't capture that many pixels. But -- keeping that in mind -- it's a great little camera.
The reviews you read of high grain and low resolution of this classic eyemodule are true as are the high coolness and fun factor.
All in all this module is worth its price for two reasons:
1) The 320x240 gray scale mode is seems sharper than the color mode (I guess it is not as sensitive to subtile lighting). For a quick snapshot in a meeting, this works well.
2) The optional software allows you to put thumbnails into an addressbook (eyecontact software has to be downloaded from their website). It's almost worth the price alone to have a little photo of someone next to their address book info.
Don't expect archival images -- but be ready for a lot of fun.
Before you purchase beware:
1) Pictures are black and white. Pre-purchase, this seemed Ok because b/w pictures are classy. A digital black and white is not so suave - pictures look dark and are pixelated. Picture how the picture would LOOK on your Handspring LCD, that is how the pics look on the computer. not good. If it were color, it would be much better.
2) Poor quality pictures. This is the poorest quality digital camera I have ever used (I have used 4) It is "etch-a-sketch quality" - very low resolution. Feel like I am on receiving pictures from space. Exciting, but rediculous quality.
3) This thing eats batteries. Munch Munch Munch. 10 minutes of use tops and your batteries are gone. Drat. Remember, no rechargable batteries on our handsprings.
4) No flash. Digital cameras need a flash and lots of light. Indoor pics are horrible. Outdoor pictures turn out much better, but who brings their handspring on nature walks? I should have known better. For some reason, I assumed there was a flash.
So, with that said. I do still like the idea of having my digital camera take pictures. The idea is enough to win it a second star. But those desiring indoor pictures... do yourself a favor and wait until some improvements are made.
Amazon.com is THE place to buy! The customer service rep was helpful and willing to refund my money when I called to complaint.
