I purchased the Megxon S308 Camera about six months ago, and it was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made on ebay! I paid around $150 for this camera, and it was a total waste. They will claim it is a great camera and list all of the features such as: 2 in 1 Editing Tool, 9 Scenes, Slim Size, Panorama Assistant, Image Sensor CMOS 3.1M, 8x Digital Zoom, 1.5 TFT LCD, 16M Internal Memory, 6 Color Effects, Digital Recorder, Audio Recorder, Web Camera, 3 Game Player, and TV Out. The list goes on and on! What they fail to mention (in lemon's terms) is that the zoom only works when you take pictures with 3.1 Mega-pixels or less. It will NOT work above 3.1, and the pictures at that resolution look terrible with this camera. They also fail to mention, that no matter what type of batteries that you use they will only last a few minutes (name brand, rechargeable, it doesn't matter). The internal memory of "16M" will only hold two pictures if you use 12 mega-pixels. And to synchronize your camera with a new memory card should be left to a genius! The Application Software that comes with this camera would not download on my computer, my mother's, or three friends computers. So the software was faulty. The only was to get assistance will be if you speak Chinese! Because all of the customer service numbers and websites are based in China, no English at all. And guess what...the user manual is included on the software, not in a paper form. So, no software, no user manual!!! I did purchase a program to translate Chinese into English and FINALLY downloaded the user manual, which was really not much help! What you get is a useless, cheap, plastic camera! I'm sure you have heard the saying "You get what you pay for". Well, that doesn't apply to this case, you won't even get that. I would definitely advise everyone to stay away from the Megxon camera's and spend a little more to get a good camera. At least one that you can use!! If you have already made the same mistake that I did, you can translate some of the websites to English, but you still won't get very far!! Count your loses and buy a good camera. And I would defiantly NOT resell the camera on ebay, you would be asking for negative feedback. Most of the seller's that sell these camera's will not leave feedback for you until you have left it for them. If you leave a negative, they will in return leave you a negative as a form of retaliation. Always be VERY cautious when you purchase a digital camera and be sure to check the feedback of the seller. I would also check the types of items they sell, as I have seen many people reselling these camera's and saying they were used once. It may be the only one they have, and they could still have very good feedback. Just be prepared, if you purchase a Megxon, you're asking for trouble!!
