Camera Chronology Pt. 2: I think this camera could be the closest digital equivalent of a pinhole camera. The Trust 715 LCD Powercam Zoom (not only a horribly convoluted but also a boisterous name for a camera, considering that it had only a digital zoom) was my second camera, shared with my sister. It was sold at a special price back in the day, and special price performance was what it gave. This camera had a 2-megapixel sensor, but it was advertised as a 3-megapixel camera for its capability to first take a 2MP photo and then simply enlarge it. It was bundled with a piece of software that could stretch those pictures even more, up to 4MP. Yup, there was a dedicated piece of software for that. Despite its habits of adding a horrible vignette into the upper right corner of every picture you took (also seen here), tinting the color balance of photos to either purple or blue when outdoors or green, brown or yellow (or all three at once) when indoors, and blossoming chromatic aberration, this camera had surprisingly good value for (little) money.
