However, my stars are reduced because the camera does not seem durable. My daughter was not rough at all, but after 4 months the camera developed a defect such that it shuts off randomly during use, sometimes within seconds - making the camera now unusable. Different batteries have not helped.
Beware that the VTech Kidizoom DUO seems to have a 90-day warranty. Therefore, our defective camera could not be replaced anymore. This warranty is not clearly marked by Amazon or by VTech. This product is actually produced by VTech UK, but they will not uphold the 12-months UK warranty when sold on Amazon. They claim the Amazon "Online Exclusive" product carries the 90-day warranty of their US products - although this product is not sold by VTech America, and their US customer service won't respond to inquiry about this product.
Finally, in my experience, VTech customer service were not very responsive, ready to dismiss or ignore a courteous inquiry. With several different worldwide divisions that make their products, the customer service for one department seems quick to defer any responsibility to the next.
Verdict: this camera should be considered a 90-day "throw-away" product. You won't get help when it does break. May or may not be worth the money for it's short lifespan.
1) Sturdy Product
2) Easy Menu's especially for Kids
3) Intuitive sound for keeping kids engaged
1) Below Standard Images
2) Kids tend to move the camera while taking pics. This is not handled.
3) Though Sturdy, we lost one grip once my three year old dropped it down
4) Preview LCD has little protection.
Verdict: If you need to wait, I will recommend that to get a Shock Proof and Waterproof camera.
I wrote the company and they said that they cannot refund or replace my order even though it has been less than 90 days. They also said they do not have a spare part I can purchase for this camera because it is a store exclusive. So this toy lasted less than 90 days for an 8 1/2 child. This is absolutely ridiculous for a camera that is made "for children". So I do not recommend this product unless you intend on never ever dropping it.
I have also included the company's response, so you can see where they say "dropping the toy may affect it". So again, if you or your child drops this toy camera meant for a child then it is tough luck on your part. I hope this helps.
The photos aren't too bad for being low on the MP scale, but in low light they do tend to be a little more blurry, which goes for most cameras, so that's not really a negative.
Battery life is decent, if you are concerned about going through a billion batteries, it's easy to get rechargeable AAs and just recharge them at night.
The camera controls are intuitive, within a day she'd figured out how to get to all of the filters, change the cameras between front and back, and even found the games.
Personally I find the games to be unnecessary, it doesn't make sense to have them on a camera. I didn't reduce the rating, however, because the games can be turned off. If you do turn them off, I highly recommend doing it before your child finds them, otherwise they will ask about them after you've turned them off.
The one thing that I DO take off one star for is the shutter lag. There is a full second or more between the time she presses the shutter and the camera takes the photo. Which means that she's trying to see the photo she just took before the shutter activates. We're working with her to wait until she hears the shutter noise, but I don't think that it is abnormal to expect toddlers to push a button and expect instant results.
I'd still recommend the camera, especially for older children who can wait a couple seconds until they hear the shutter sound to check their photos.
