Beware--Bait and Switch
on December 21, 2010
This camera was advertised as being able to store 80 images on the internal memory. According to the manufacturer's website the memory was 128MB. And reviewers here have said the camera can store 150-200 images. So imagine my surprise when I bought it for my grandson for Christmas and it would only store 40-50 images before the internal memory was full. So I hooked it up to the computer and found that it had only 28MB. I contacted the maker (Digital Blue) and was told that it now ships with only 28MB and that they would update the website--which they have now done. The Amazon description still says "up to 80 photos."
It is really a pretty good camera for a little kid. Simple to use and while the images aren't great, they are ok. The child needs to learn to hold still when taking the photo, and to pay attention to the lighting. And as others say, beware the super flash. What is really great is that it charges from a USB cable rather than using batteries.
I got a small amount back from Amazon for the misleading description and decided to keep it. I'll update my review after my grandson has a go with it.
