Based on the specs, it looks like a 5MP webcam with a memory card slot and a battery. Probably about the same image quality as you get from a cell phone. I noticed they have an utterly fake 12 MP mode...it just scales up the basic image from 5 to 12. You can do that in photoshop in 15 seconds.

In case you haven't figured out, they didn't take the pictures they show on the screens with those cameras.
