~This takes very low quality photos that seem comparable to those taken with cheap cell phones. But, for pre-schoolers, who cares. It's better than no camera at all. Once they learn to actually hold the camera still, it is possible to get clear photos.
~I could do without the games programmed into this. I was after a camera that wouldn't immediately break and with few enough buttons that the kids would be able to operate them without throwing off settings. I guess in this day and age of smartphones that isn't enough and manufacturers feel like a product isn't marketable being that simple??
~I love the audible electronic shutter sound that plays when a photo is taken. It's a good indicator for the kids on when they can move the camera.
~This camera connects to the computer with a micro-usb cord which is not included (unlike the Connect model which uses a mini-usb and IS included). If you have Android phones you'll probably have a few laying around anyway.
Overall, a very good gift for preschool aged children that will allow them to explore their world and isn't just a "toy." My kids do love these Kidizoom cameras so much that it was a constant fight once one got one and I couldn't wait until the other's birthday so they could each have their own!
Example photos show photo quality and some of the effects built in.
1) The shutter button is flush with the camera body, and not visible from the back. This makes it hard for kids to find it. Frustration = less engagement. Shutter button should be on top, and should stick out.
2) There is a SIGNIFICANT (about 1 second!) lag between shutter press and image capture. This means your kid has to remember to hold the camera steady for a whole second AFTER pushing the button, or they get a picture of their feet. More frustration = even less engagement. The designers don't seem to understand that children have a low threshold of frustration.
3) You have to navigate through a MENU to view pictures! What should be a single button press (and is on every other camera in the world) is FOUR on this one. Another source of frustration and disengagement for children.
4) Finally, the most unforgivable faux pas, there are VIDEO GAMES on this thing – and you can't turn them off! They are in the same menu you have to click through to view pictures, which means every time your kid wants to look at the pictures they took (which is approximately every 5 seconds), they are tempted by VIDEO GAMES! I didn't buy this so my nephews and nieces could have another brain-numbing time waster, I bought it so they could exercise creativity. But no less than 5 minutes after it's out of the box they are entranced by these stupid VIDEO GAMES!
I like that it's splash-resistant. I like that it's drop-resistant. I like that it can hold an OK number of pictures in its internal memory. But the above are serious flaws that should make you reconsider.
My son really enjoys the camera and used it heavily when he first opened it. So the batteries ran out quickly, but I hope as his use levels out then the battery use won't be quite so heavy. He takes pictures of all kinds of things, often moving the camera before the picture is done resulting in blurs or dark pictures. Anyway, he still enjoys it. He especially enjoys watching the video he and daddy took when they were playing together.
-Batteries are in the handles, which is an efficient use of space and easy to access with a fingernail (no screws). The battery doors open from the side of the handles (not from the bottom like the old model).
-Contrary to the Amazon description, my camera did NOT include the 4 AA batteries.
-On startup you set language, date, and time.
-The buttons and menus are intuitive and the camera is very easy to use. A couple times pushing buttons the press didn't register.
-I noticed they moved the "take picture" button to the front compared to the old model that had it on top. The location feels natural when taking pictures.
-When taking a picture, you can use the dual-eye view finder or the screen.
-After taking a picture, it shows briefly on screen then goes away. You'd go to the playback option in the menu to see it again.
-When editing a photo, the original photo is preserved and your edited version is a new, separate photo.
-The picture quality is on the lower end and there's no flash, but I think the point is this is a real camera that a little kid can use and is their very own. I think that is plenty cool. If your child is a bit older and taking an interest in photography, then get an inexpensive adult digital camera instead of this one.
-The outside is rubbery and seems durable so far.
-There's a strap included that you can attach to the camera.
-The camera will automatically turn off after a few minutes of being idle.
-There are sounds when navigating around the menus, including a cute "spring" sound when the camera can't do what you're asking. When you take a picture, there's a "camera" sound. I turned the volume down a bit because I thought the default was a little loud.
-No USB cable is included, but it's supposed to be a standard micro USB which we have plenty of already.
