Worst Digital Camera

This is the worst digital camera I have purchased to date.
The instructions say that "best focus" is at about 5 feet. But I say that the lens is incapable of ever focusing, due to a high degree of aberation in the optics.
The camera stores its images in its internal memory. However, if the battery goes dead, or the battery door is opened, before transfering the pics to a PC, all images are permanently deleted.
And the pics cannot be copied off the camera, unless proprietary software, included on a cd that comes in the kit, is first installed to the target PC, and the system rebooted. No other drivers or software will recognize the camera's image storage.
OK, for the POSITIVE comments regarding this camera:
It is very compact and easy to carry.
It comes with a fairly long carrying strap.
The optical finder is reasonably accurate in its coverage.
It does as well in low light as in bright light.
It comes with a USB data transfer cable.
It only needs a single AAA cell to operate.
And it only cost me five dollars, on closeout at a well known megastore!
Below, see the best I was able to wrangle out of this device, in a trial run.
The five dollar bill is included in the camera portrait shots, to give an indication of both a sense of scale, and of value.
