It seems there are quite a few negatives on Amazon reviews


They are reviews based on £65 and not £17.
I see there's a trend in camera jokes developing here.

If it doesn't take a good photo at £65 it won't take one at £17 either, or 17p.

A crap camera is a crap camera whether you pay £17 or £17k and like most of the reviews say and the title states "good for kids"

The Argos reviews slate it as well. biggest complaint "doesn't take videos"

I'm not disputing the deal. It is a fantastic price

ISO like this deal
Id get this in a flash guys.

Really? That's surprising. I used to own a Polaroid many years ago and it always took film.

It's my resolution to stop these puns.
Your phone will take better pictures - and I don't like phone pictures either!
Waste of £17.
You definitely get what you pay for with this, I couldn’t even suggest they are good for the kids as buttons are fiddly for them. Pay a little more and you will get a much better product.
Boldon as has had these in sub £10 numerous times, even at £9 I wouldn't touch one.
Probably excellent for someone who wants a snapshot camera to take pictures to print off at 6x4 inch size or to view on a computer screen at not too large a size.

I have a 2005 Vivitar camera with a mere 5 MP which I still use and it takes lovely, crisp, clear photos which to my untrained eye are just as good as those from my smart phone or my much more expensive and more modern camera.

Some people attach far too much importance to numbers in specifications.

The main problem (reading the reviews) is that it won't focus and/or the shutter is too slow, so all the pictures are blurred, in which case it's good for nothing.

That said, in regards to pixels, you're not wrong- there's little to be gained by increasing the pixel resolution if the sensor size isn't increased accordingly- in fact massive pixel count on a tiny sensor will likely produce worse photos than a lower pixel count on a larger sensor. But manufacturers rely on your casual and amateur customers to not know this, and just be blinded by the pixel count.
