Able to perform as either a PC-based or portable digital camera, the flexible Intel Pocket PC Camera provides high-quality video clips and pictures--whether it's tethered to the computer or sitting in the palm of your hand. The Pocket PC makes capturing and sharing video and pictures more exciting and convenient than ever. Just push a button to capture snapshots or start recording video clips for use in e-mail postcards, movies, Web sites, and more. For use away from the PC, simply detach it from the tilt-swivel base and USB cord, using the handy wrist strap and carrying case. The software gives you the freedom to make video phone calls over the Internet from your desk. You can even build your own PC movies and edit and enhance your pictures.
Featuring a progressive-scan CCD image sensor, a glass and plastic lens, and 8 MB flash memory, Intel's Pocket PC Camera takes 24-bit/16.8 million-color still images at 640 x 480 resolution.

it is not a HD camera in any fashion of the sense but it is one that can be lost or destroyed without losing much and if the resolution is not all that important to you.
This was a Christmas present for me and quite honestly, I didn't think it would last very long. It looks cheap, but it is a real work horse! I use it constantly and have not had any problems with it whatsoever.
4 1/2 Stars...Only because I am still not sure of its total capabilities and have had it a short time.
this camera is a GREAT BUY if you want smaller images @ 640x480. it's compact and easy to take everywhere. downloading the pics is easy as a click away with its software. plus, it makes a great webcam so you can have video chats with friends on the 'net. also, webcam stills are very good quality!!
DO NOT BUY this camera if you want a camera that takes HQ images. there is no zoom and no flash, which is a setback because i can never take pictures at night. also, when objects are not in good lighting, images tend to be grainy and blurry. otherwise, images are usually sharp and clean during the day.
As a digital camera, it is best ONLY for beginners. The quality can be surprisingly wonderful in the right light. It's portability can let you take quick snap shots of anything quickly. It has 8MB of memory which is about 100 640x480 pics. A great digital camera for anyone starting out and to progressive onto the bigger names, like Kodak or Fujifilm.
This camera is great for quick snaps while out, webcam shots and netconferencing. Great deal!
Cons: The battery compartment door doesn't lock as well as it could and the batteries sometimes fall out at inconvenient times. The color makes it seem kind of toyish. It has XP issues, but the work-around program seemed to work good enough. I've not used it for a web cam on XP though. It worked fine with Win/98 though.
Pros: Its lens can be focused for close ups; this is a rare feature for small web/digital cams as many can't focus on anything under 3 feet. Picture quality is very good. I use a digital camera for work but the battery life of my 'good' camera is just ridiculously short. I use this as a replacement as the images are fine for most outdoor shots.
For what it is, it's pretty good. It's a nice webcam for connecting directly to your PC. It's a convenient camera to carry around with you and take lots of reasonably good pictures. The software that comes with it is nice and works from within my image editing software so I can download, edit, and save very easily. The size is just right for slipping in a pocket and it's survived a number of minor drops intact. This is definitely not a high-end camera, but if you just want something to take pictures to post on the web and work as a direct-connect webcam it's a good deal. Battery life is good and it uses Alkaline batteries. I'd rather have the option of rechargable batteries charged via the USB cable, but that isn't available. The one thing that really bothers me is the button. It's kind of hard to push down and when it finally gives, it tends to jerk the camera a little. If I'm not careful to keep it steady, this results in a blurred shot.
Pros: Good battery life. Enough memory for 128 pictures. Adjustable focus for close-up objects. Shoots 10-second video clips away from PC. Shoots nice higher-res videos when connected to a PC. USB interface with slick software. Timer mode so you can set it down, click the button, and get into the shot
Cons: Cannot upgrade memory. No screen to view/delete pictures. Not Windows 2000 compatible - a beta driver is available to download pictures, but it cannot clear pictures from the camera's memory! Video limited to low-res 10 second clips. Low-light pictures do not come out well and it doesn't have a flash. Can only adjust focus when it's connected to a computer
Keep your eye out for rebates. CompUSA recently had a MAJOR price break on these things.
