It's a very cool and simple to use camera.
StarWarsMomma
Ok, so the picture quality isn't great, but my kids don't notice and are THRILLED with the camera.
Christy
In both cases, the 1280 x 960 shot did NOT look any better overall than the 640 x 480 shot.

We bought this without expecting too much (after having problems with a cheaper camera), and this is a good camera for young children 3+

What's good?
- physical Design makes it easy to look through and hold, robust construction,
- Simple contols, kids easily learned the User Interface and how to take photos. Has simple sounds as well that accompony power on/off, shutter
- the one we bought took a standard 128MB SD card which provides heaps of storage for photos of this size
- no PC drivers required - mounts as a standard USB storage device

Needs improvement:
- picture quality - its OK, but very basic. Sort of 1MP phone quality.
- rear display - fairly poor, but workable.
- Some troubles getting it detected by WinXP on our notebook, but with repititon it worked

Overall:
- Great learning toy for the kids to figure out what photography is. They copy what adults do, and this is a great way to learn. They have learnt if you take lots of pictures, you have to sort through them and delete the cruddy ones. How to compose a photo. And they learn about composing photos and what photos look like if you just press the shutter button at any time.

The picture quality is only part of it - it is the overall experience that matters. The simple User Interface and durable design mean that this is a toy that kids should get some life out of. Reccomended (though a higher picture quality version would be nice!).

Note: - there is a high quality mode which needs to be turned on. Press both arrow keys and press the shutter button which turns on a cross hatched pattern symbol in the lower left of the display. Pictures instead of being 640 x 480 are 1280 x 960. I don't know whether this is a higher quality or just interpolated, but it looks worthwhile having.

After spending a lot of time researching digital cameras for little kids, we decided on the Kid Tough camera. The downside to buying a camera rugged enough for a young child is that the resolutions are terrible. At least the KT camera rates at 1 megapixel, unlike several others that have .3 megapixels which is borderline pointless. Because of the lower resolutions, the pictures are comparable to cell photo photos, but that's been perfectly peachy for us so far.

There is no question that the camera is rugged - it has already been dropped about 20 times and still works like new. Hooking it up to my Mac or my husband's PC has been very easy (although be aware the creativity software is PC only).

Here are the negatives:

1. The flash is way too bright, and it overexposed almost every photo. We fixed this by taking a small square of a paper towel and placing it over the flash with a piece of clear packing tape. It works beautifullly as a diffuser.

2. The delete button is too easy for little kids to hit. In future versions, FP should make it very difficult for little kids to delete pictures. Let mom and dad do the deleting.

3. Would it kill any of these manufacturers to make software Mac compatible?

All in all, I would definitely recommend the camera to any parent looking for a rugged camera for their toddler/young elementary aged kids.

We bought this camera for our son's 3rd birthday. He had an old camera of ours that didn't work so he was excited to have his own, especially since it worked. It's a very cool and simple to use camera. Within about 5 minutes of opening it and looking at it with dad, he understood what the buttons did and was clicking away taking pictures. It's super easy to upload the pictures onto our computer and the picture quality is much better once loaded onto the computer.
Another cool thing (that I didn't notice when I bought it) is the binocular eye piece. I think it would have been hard for him if it wasn't.
This is a great camera - it's very cool to see what he takes pictures of and especially those everyday things that you can now see from a 3-year-old's perspective. If you have a kid who is even a little interested in pictures and photography I think this is a must have!!

I bought this for my 4-year old for Christmas. He has had a blast with it, along with his relatives and friends at Christmas parties etc.

The shape is great for small hands, and the interface is so simple he and his friends mastered it in no time.

However, it is not perfect. The first problem we noticed is that it cuts off the top of what you compose in the viewfinder. So your toddler needs to learn to aim high or use the preview screen. But the preview screen is very poor quality and difficult to use for composition (it's okay for image review).

Next, the flash strength and image exposure seem to be always the same, so if a subject is close enough for their head to fill the frame top to bottom, they'll be very overexposed. But if they're too far away in dim lighting for the flash to fully illuminate them, then they'll be underexposed. The ideal range, judging from several days' worth of photos, seems to be around head and shoulders to head and full torso, for average adults.

But kids that age still enjoy it even when pictures are over and underexposed. If they can recognize the subject, it's fun for them.

That said, pictures taken all the way across a typical dimly-lit living room turn out pretty dark, and will probably just be deleted. Athough it does fine indoors at the right distance range, this camera should be taken outdoors during the day, too, for better results.

Oh -- one tip for indoor shooting: Wait for the flash icon at the lower left of the screen to show the flash is ready. When kids shoot rapidly, some of the shots are taken before the flash is ready, and are all the darker.

Next problem: The screen is square, and does not show the whole picture.
