I think the "colour monitor and 125mb free hard disc space" is most likely some numpties failed attempt to cut and paste the minimum PC specs required for using the camera with a computer. It most likely has a colour screen though, would be a bit crud if it didn't.

Any idea of how many mega pixels??

Kids just gonna wreck it get them a fake one instead :P

£13.50 is HOT as the other ones are around £50-£60 and at the end of the day they do the same job! Just ordered one-

LOL - I ordered one as a fake one isn't much cheaper than the £13.50 that this one is delivered!!

Worth a gamble at that price!

I bought one of these at the weekend. It scanned as £30 in the store - but as I'd printed out the web page they put it through as £15 – so I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be web only.
The spec. isn't that great - but not bad for £15 and when compared to some of the other kids cameras. I think many of them are the same resolution – and they cost a lot more.
As per some posts, the 800x600 and 125Mb refer to PC spec. - not camera.
I’ve not tried it out yet but details from the manual:
Resolution: “Hi”=640x480 (VGA); “Lo”=320x240(QVGA)
Storage: VGA approx 26 pictures, QVGA approx 104
You can also enable compressed versions – but they are lower quality.
Storage then becomes 52 VGA, 208 QVGA
There is a very small LCD screen at the back.
It has built in flash, 2 view finders, and a self timer.
It can be used to take video ONLY if connected to your PC, and can also be used as a webcam.
Camera PC Software states XP and Vista.

Thanks for the heads up of the deal boozie and thanks for the info noiy

Hot. Great xmas pressie for the kids

Many thanks. just bought one for my nephew, I think he'll love it :thumbsup:

I bought one last week and the picture quality is very grainy on the screen, viewfinders are spaced brill for little ones, did not download the software as i would have had to open the packet the disc came in and as this is a gift I didn't want to do that, the plastic is quite cheap and i do feel it wont be too long before it's cracked, but i could be prooved wrong, It realy is suited to the 2-5 age range i would say. I would buy it again (but only at this price, not worth £30), hth
fizzie xx

Like it - my daughter already has a 'real' camera that she damaged (keeps her amused), but she's pretty much destroyed it, even a cheap plastic one like this that actually takes pictures would be an upgrade.

They aslo have Little Angels Disco Flashing Microphone which is only a tenner good wee extra .

Does anyone know how do you print pictures taken with this camera at home?

Has it an SD card or can you only print it off via a printer connected to a pc?

Pffft. That quality is rubbish.

You'd be best off getting your little ones a wee cheap £20 mobile phone which, for the price, will take these same quality pictures.. With the added benefit that your always in contact with them.

Voted hot. Thank you.

They have another camera- just put camera into search and also a camcorder. Do you reckon that would be any good??

I can't see my 4 year olds being able to work the fiddly little buttons on a mobile phone!
Plus is would be smashed within a week. Quality of pictures is a side issue for me.

the low light noise performance on this will be terrible.

My four year old tells me that there is no upgrade path & that the lens is too slow....he's asked me not to bother preferring that I buy him something that won't make him a laughing stock ...therefore I'll get him some yellow plastic clogs** instead...

**A photo of some yellow plastic clogs. Nice.

Bought my children (4 & 5) something similar last year. DON'T BOTHER. They were so disappointed when they realised that their pics are just dark, grainy, blurs.

Spent the same amount getting an older model CyberShot off ebay. Much better option ... with semi-decent video option as well and decent sized memory card so they can store hours of videos (...which is by far their favourite thing!)

Subsequent research discovered that these budget cameras use CMOS sensors. All "proper" cameras use CCD sensors. CMOS sensors are pretty much useless at taking any pictures that aren't in strong sunlight, with completely still subjects.

I doubt very much it would have any sort of screen. Look at the image - it has dual viewfinders for kids who can't get the hang of closing one eye . They would have left out the screen to make it tougher and cheaper. At £13.50 you can hardly complain.

Strictly toddlers only though. As the above poster points out, older kids know what **** is, and if you can find a cheap 5mp compact with a decent brand name (NOT Technika or Tesco) they'd get far more fun out of it.

I picked one up instore yesterday and thought I would give it as go before wrapping it up. The picture quality is awful, so I am taking it straight back. There is an LCD screen on the back but I cannot make out anything which I have taken a picture of. My 3 year old would expect to see the pic she has taken, so she would quickly lose interest in it. I think I'll have a look on ebay for a cheap proper camera.

i cant believe all of the negative comments for this, its £13.50 compared to similar items on the market at £50-£60......everyone is quick enough to moan about the economy and how broke they are yet they would rather spend upto 4 times as much?? maybe its just me but i think at that price its worth a go!!

Im getting one for my 2 yr old and one for my 3 year old nephew and im sure they will love them.

They are both far too young for mobile phones and this does everything they need it to do, im pretty sure niether of them intend to take professional quality pictures and will use it as what its intended to be - A TOY!!

For anyone who`s child whats to be a professional photographer at the age of 4 i would suggest something with a much higher price tag and from a shop dedicated to that type of product not lloyds!

But if the kids can't make out what the pictures are of that they have taken then why pay £13.50? You might as well spend half that and get something like this toysrus.co.uk/Toy…905) Strangely that URL doesn't work anymore but if you type in camera on Toys-r-us it comes up at the top of the page.

My little ones understand what cameras do and I would happily pay the £50 price tag that V-tech and the others are charging but to be honest afaict even £13.50 is a rip off for the reported quality of these "toy" cameras.

Recieved mine today - absolute rubbish!:x

It seems there are a lot of pill*cks out there that for 131/2 quid seem to expect the world on a stick.Try the more exspensive fisher price kiddy cams etc..compare,then shut up!

ummm fisher price have really bad reviews too so na na na!

Mine arrived today for my 3 yr old, cannot explain how bad it is, the pic quality is awful!! you can't even make out who is in the pictures!! It is going straight back tomorrow. May only be £13.50, not even worth £1 in poundland, seriously its that bad!!
