Excellent Educational Tool
on December 26, 2009
My four year old daughter absolutely loves this camera. She does have to have a steady hand for pictures to come out clear but that is usually the case with any camera. It has taught her a little patience. LCD screen isnt clear but when pictures are downloaded to computer, quality and clarity is a lot better. I was actually shocked with how good the pictures looked. I had read some negative reviews about this type of camera so I was expecting a lot worse.
I bought it for her for Christmas'09 and I am so glad I did. I can see her using it for a couple of years and then upgrading her to a one that is a little more advanced. This one has wonderful features and it is giving her practice with digital camera technology. It has a zoom, flash, and she has the ability to go back and scroll through all of the pictures she has taken. She was able to figure it out in one day. She loves being able to place stamps and frames on the things she is taking pictures of. She can go back and add them too.
Don't buy this camera if you are expecting professional quality photos(even though quality actually isn't that bad), buy it if you would like your child to get the opportunity to explore, learn and use digital camera technogoly and have fun doing so. It has the basics needed to be able learn what is needed with out all of the other confusing settings and features that a child wouldn't understand anyway.
It also has some games but, we have not had the opportunity to explore those yet. I have a feeling she wouldn't be interested in them anyhow, not now anyway.
Excellent educational tool. `
