    Has anyone used these things?
    I haven't really looked hard enough to see if anyone else makes 'em

    CVS makes a disposable video camera

    Just curious to know if anyone has used these? Is it worth it?

    Going on vacation to Cancun area in less than 2 weeks. I'll be carrying a still camera. We have a camcorder but its old, bulky, and I really don't want to carry that thing around. I have a phone and a new nano that takes video, but I think I'd rather leave those at home where they're safe. Thinking about trying this disposable thing...just for the hell of it. I'm not worried about the cost involved to develope it - I just wanna make sure it takes half-way decent video and I won't care if I lose it or it gets stolen.

    Any input would be good. Thanks!

    I think I'm gonna bail on this idea.

    I might just take my nano along. I haven't put any music on it yet...since we were reorganizing our computers/files/etc. I might load it half full with music and just save the other half for videos.

    We take more still picts than anything. Just seems like a waste of money & space to go the disposable route.
