"My camera never lies", Bucks Fizz once whined, but you'd be hard pushed to believe them when you see the robust spec list of the LCD2 and check out the low, low price. Surely someone is telling porkies? We'd have to respond to that slur with a line from that talented duo, Charles & Eddie. "Would I lie to you?", we'd bleat. You'd probably come back with a Neil Young lyric, though. Something along the lines of, "ain't it the truth now, baby", although that song also contains the line, "make love to me, babe", and if you were to come out with that sort of smut, Firebox would have to politely decline your offer, before making our excuses and heading for the nearest door.

Enough tenuous song links for now in any case, let's get down to brass tacks. As we said, you'd be forgiven for thinking that there was something untoward going on when you marry up the spec and price of the LCD2. After all, it's not every day you see a 1.3-megapixel camera with a 1.5-inch LCD screen for a fraction under £100, is it? Add the fact that this is (currently) the world's smallest digital camera with an LCD screen and that you don't lose your photos when the battery runs out and we think it makes an unbeatable package for the money. God knows how we do it (and He’s not telling).

The sleek LCD2 houses a generous 16MB of flash memory and, thanks to some god-like software enhancement (as on the Gsmart Mini2), the actual output resolution is an incredible 2.1-megapixels, making that miniscule price tag even more bewildering. Oh, and add to that the fact it weighs just 61g and boasts waif-like 72.5x62x19.9mm dimensions and weÂ’ll be amazed if you finish reading this before you begin reaching for your wallet.

Those of you still with us will be interested to note that the LCD2 is adept at recording moving images as well as stills and can store up to 120 seconds of 320x240 footage. YouÂ’ll also be interested to know you can also use the Gsmart as a webcam and that this compact little snapper also boasts a macro mode for close-up shots. Now, if thatÂ’s doesnÂ’t have you cart-wheeling round the room, then you probably "just can't be satisified"...Rolling Stones, in case you were wondering.
