It has 3-in-1 functions Digital video, digital still camera and PC (or web) camera. This video can take video clips up to 3.1 megapixels (software resolution), and has the facility for SD/MMC memory cards, so that the memory of your digital video is only as limited as your memory card.

What do you reckon about it?

I would say you get what you pay for.

Got a link to the auction?

I looked at these sometime ago. By memory they can only record to a memory card what is fine for photos but very limiting for video. Don't think you will get many minutes of good video.

You need to record onto tape

Just noticed the card is only 128mb

For video that would be absolutely USELESS

I agree, you really do get what you pay for: not alot.
