Toshiba PDR-M70, Sony DSC-S70 CyberShot and Casio QV-3000


They are 3-megapixel cameras with identical as it seems to me lenses. They say Toshiba's lens is from Canon and Sony's one is from Carl Zeiss. It seems to me that for digital cameras the standard lens was formed. As a lot of...

Toshiba PDR-M70


Digital camera, video camera or voice recorder? Toshiba get multifunctional with a top-quality digital device.

A triple mega-pixel camera with video and audio capabilities that's ideal for digital imaging enthusiasts. Business travellers will find it particularly appealing. A top performer.

Toshiba PDR-M70


The Toshiba PDR-M70 has the look and feel of a traditional 35-mm point-and-shoot camera. Underneath the attractive aluminum exterior, we found a fast, responsive camera that produced excellent pictures under all lighting conditions. Part of the credit...

Toshiba PDR-M70 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights


Toshiba is clearly one of the true "mega" players in the world of computers and electronics. When they moved into digital cameras about two years back now, they brought tremendous engineering resources to bear, which has borne fruit in the form of some...

Overall, the PDR-M70 performed very well, with good color balance even in difficult lighting situations, such as the very high contrast Outdoor Portrait and the dimly-lit Indoor Portrait. We chose to shoot with the automatic white balance setting the...

Toshiba PDR-M70 3.3 Mega Pixel Digital Camera


Battery Life: Seems to do a good job, I have found that it will take around 110 pictures or so on a good day. Time estimation would be 1 hour with LCD on and 1.5 hours with LCD off.Weight/size: This is a rather large camera for today's standards. It rough

Toshiba PDR-M70 Review


What's in the Box

Full featured -- movies, audio, manual controls ; Very well designed with thoughtful touches like backlit LCD ; Very responsive in all modes ; External flash support ; Competitive photo quality ; Good stuff "in the box

No white balance settings in auto mode ; No uncompressed TIFF mode ; Photos seem a bit soft sometimes

I got jumped on in the last review for not commenting on photo quality. The truth is, I don't think I'm any better judge of photo quality than anyone else, so I'll leave the final decision up to you. While I'd personally say that the quality is right...

Toshiba PDR-M70 camera


If however you want to bring it on vacation you might want to opt for more mega-pixels, even though for a night in town this is more than enough.

Toshiba PDR-M70 camera


The Toshiba PDR-M70 is a pretty good simple camera which can take some decent pictures. It does however have some flaws. First off, it is quite bulky and annoying to carry around, fortunately though it does come with a shoulder strap which makes it...

Excellent pictures, changeable lenses, but uses smart media


I've had this camera since 2001 and I still use it. There are newer, greater cameras to be had with many more megapixels and better storage media, etc. etc., but I still stick with this oldie but goodie. I have even had the camera repaired when it was ...

Consistently good pictures, flexible settings, different lens options

Uses smart media, doesn't focus well in low-light

Incredible Camera.


Ok guys,I waited 2.5 years to do this review, I've taken 8000 pictures and videos at this point and I've sucked the life out of this camera and am using it to the bitter end. hehe. At this point, I can tell you the pros are(according to my experience):...

incredible pictures, audio only function, battery lasts a nice amount of time, nice menus.

crappy lens cap, heavy, a little big, video not up to today's standards.
