    Oregon Scientific I-Cam review

    By 16 December 2003

    Styled like the Pentax Optio S, this fixed focus 2mp camera from Oregon Scientific offers a lot on the style front. Slim and compact and thinner than a pack of playing cards, the camera features a 1.5” LCD display and the usual array of buttons to access...
