That's the daughters present sorted. Thanks
#3
Thanks, just ordered one, fingers crossed will get it. i wanted one of these for my daughter but wasnt prepared to pay £50. great find. :thumbsup:
#4
I'd already ordered one from ELC at full price, so I'm going to take that back and have ordered this one from Amazon - great, thanks!!
#5
What sort of res (MP) do you get on these?
#6
Really really low res, from what I remember (like 640 x 480 - 0.5 MP maybe?)

Be prepared to return it.

I spent a small fortune a few years ago on something similar (Barbie branded I think) and it turned out to be complete garbage. The resolution (0.3Mp?) and lens (plastic) were terrible, the thing had no flash.....rendering it useless indoors. It didn't look too dissimilar to the one shown. A few months after I bought it, the camera was being sold for less than 10% of what I paid for it.

Surely it would be better to buy a cheap, 'normal' camera with a few megapixel resolution and a flash? Don't think for one second that it will be too complicated for your little one - in a few hours they'll be telling you how to use it!!;-)

Totally agree. I mean, I'm not expecting David Bailey photos, but the examples I saw from a very similar camera (Tomy maybe?) at my daughter's preschool were awful. Very small, very grainy and almost always blurred.

I looked into buying one for my daughter this summer and am glad I didn't.

Polaroid do a really quite good kiddies camera, but it's not out in the UK yet. Maybe by this Xmas...

I hate seeing people without much technology nous getting ripped off with **** like this. We all know people who have paid top buck for old technology or just plain garbage because they're told how great it is but are too naive or unknowledgeable to question it.

I think we've all been there at some point!
#10
We bought our 3 yr old a little tykes one of these (very similar spec) at Xmas. It is truly awful photo quality and the craziest thing is that even for an adult with a steady hand it is almost impossible to get a blur free shot so forget it with kids.I could forgive the poor photo quality for printing if it had a half decent LCD display but that is really really bad quality too.
Total waste of money even at £35 I am a sucker for a bargain but I wouldnt even pay a tenner for one of these tbh. Lets hope one of the big toy manufacturers decide that our kids are worth the effort of a decent res camera.
#11
Just had a look for the Polaroid Pixie. I know they are 3MP and made by a decent camera manufacturer but to be honest, the quality looks pretty dire. Obviously at 3MP the technology is very old. The camera doesn't seem to have a flash and has 'on board' games. I know it's aimed at kids but let them have a camera to take photos and a gameboy/ds to play games!

I suppose its cheap plastic exterior will absorb quite a few knocks but it makes the whole thing look pretty tacky. It's on sale in the US for 80 dollars, so expect that to be a straight conversion for us, as usual......i.e. £80

For that sort of money I'd prefer to buy this camera for my daughter....

Just make sure she has the strap tightly secured to here wrist as it may not be as robust as the Logitech or Kodak! I can assure you tho', it'll be a lot more useful and if looked after, it will last a whole lot longer too.
#12
Bought one of these for my daughter, Broke after two weeks.
Rubbish.
Quality of snaps was truly awful. She loved it but it was awful and broke.
#13
Might as well get them a cheap branded 5MP camera and paint it pink. It'll do much better job then this sounds like it.
#14
i've decided to buy my daughters (6 yrs old) a camera for crimbo, pink if possible. I dont want to spend as much as the one from pixmania but i see a cheapy in argos think it was a vivatar 3mp camera for about £26.00. But again i dont know if one drop would break it, ( as i have a 20month yr old in the house as weel its only a matter of time before shes gets her hands on it)
#15
I bought my daughter the 3mp pink vivitar last christmas.

It's taken a few knocks, as you'd expect, but still working well.

Takes a much better picture than the lower res kids cameras as well and really easy to teach them to use!
#16
I did overhear a conversation at the school gates that suggests this vtech version is not simply a camera, there's alot more features in with it. Granted, it is still worth looking at getting a basic real camera (and painting it pink if you really want to...), but for its targetted age range its probably a bit better than other 'kiddie' cameras.

I've forwarded to the wallet keeper for her to make a decision on it....
#17
I looked at these a few months back as my daughter loves taking snaps, but I read the reviews on most of the makes and they were all terrible, I decided not to bother.
#18
£34.99 seems like a lot of money for a toy, because that's just what it is. It may be called Kidizoom, but there's no actual zoom on it, not even a digital one, and it has a measly resolution of 0.3 megapixels (640x480 "VGA") . The video it takes is the size of a postage stamp too.

I know most 3-6 year-olds will be more excited about snapping photos of family, toys etc, but parents may be disappointed that the occasional photographic gem is too low quality to print.

The games are Tic-Tac-Toe, Matching Pairs and a photo Rotation Puzzle game, plus the photo editor may make it more fun for youngsters.

Parents looking for a good quality pink digital camera should have a look at the Kodak C813, which has 8.2MP and 3x optical zoom. Currently selling for £59.00 in ASDA.....

I don't often agree with shops' own insurance policies but Argos' insurance cover might well be worth it here!

I brought one of these for my daughter back in August (for Christmas!!) I know!!!
Anyway I paid £49.97 in Toys R us, didn't think they would take it back as it was brought a little while ago but they did give me a full refund and so I ordered one of these saving me £15!
So a HOT vote from me!!!
#21
+ / - points of this camera as my son has one....

+ has been dropped several times, hasn't broke and seems quite sturdy.
+ buttons very simple and easy to press for little fingers
+ has images that you can sit on top of the picture e.g. funny hat, nose etc

- images are truly terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they will love taking the pics, but you will never ever ever get a good one. If your child is able to take a picture on a standard digi camera, get one of those. The prices of digi cameras has dropped that much, you couldn't possibly get anything as bad as this as it's impossible to take a clear photo. for the price it's extremely dissapointing. I would have taken it back but it was a birthday present from somebody else.
#22
I ordered one of these for my daughter for Xmas as her older sister (7yrs) has asked Santa for one so the younger one copied (she's 3). I just know there's no point ordering her a proper camera because it will have been dropped within 5 minutes and be in pieces.

I think most people ordering these cameras are aware that the photo quality is going to be pretty poor but for a 3 year old the main attraction is being able to take a photo, they've usually lost interest by the time the look at the blooming thing. Also, for it to have games to play with and editing it makes it a bit more interesting for them.

I voted hot yesterday for these reasons and think votes should be based on whether a deal is a good deal or not, not whether in someone's opinion the item is pants or not, you know what they say, one man's junk is another man's treasure!!

I bought one of these cameras for my 6 year old for her birthday approx six months ago (from Costco for a similar price) and she loves it. I had to buy rechargeable batteries as she uses it so much. It takes short films, so she is often to be found sneaking around the house as a spy trying to capture film evidence or spends time filming friends singing etc. It has features on it that can turn a photo into a devil for example. I agree that the photo quality is not good and we had to buy an extra memory card, as she uses it so much, she needed more memory. We do not usually print out the pictures, but it is a fun, robust, easy to operate toy that her and friends love. Thanks for the post as they had sold in Costco and many of her friends have been asking parents for this toy-so will pass on this deal.

[SIZE="2"][FONT="Verdana"]They're back up to £49.99 now, I missed the deal and I was hoping to get one for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas. Now I've read the comments here I'm not sure that I will! Could anybody recommend a camera that will be suitable for a 3 year old who doesn't always look after her toys properly? I didn't think a "proper" digital camera would survive being bashed around a bit! It needs to be easy to use as well. Thanks![/FONT][/SIZE]
