Product Description

Amazon.com

Kids today live in a world of instant gratification: DVDs that skip to a favorite scene; CDs that play and repeat a favorite song; digital cameras that show a picture seconds after taking it. And while the VTech Kidizoom may not teach the valuable lesson of patience, it is a cool camera meant specifically for small children so they can experience the immediate joy of taking pictures, making movies, and playing games.

Ideal for ages 3 to 6 years, this toy lets your child explore and cultivate their creative streak. The digital camera has fat bumper handles perfect for small hands, big buttons for manageability, a dual viewfinder and a 1.8-inch color LCD screen for easy subject alignment, and two interchangeable face plates so kids can make it their own. It’s also made ultra-tough to handle the guaranteed mishaps that come with the territory. But enough about its attractive looks and kid-friendly features.

Cube World
A dual viewfinder, large LCD screen, and chunky buttons make this ideal for young ones.
The Kidizoom is able to capture up to 120 still photos or up to 5 minutes of video thanks to its 16MB internal memory. If that’s not enough space for your little shutterbug, the camera also provides an SD card slot. Once pictures are snapped (or motion is filmed), you can plug the device into a PC or the family TV with the included cable. From there kids can crop their photos, give images crazy effects, add wacky frames, or watch their video footage.

If you’re on the go and there’s not much picture-taking interest, the Kidizoom may still be your child’s preferred toy. It has three fun built-in games geared toward preschoolers and comes with a set of headphones that plug into its side. Say "Cheese!" (Four AA batteries are required but not included.)

VTech Kidizoom features:

  • .3 megapixels with 1.8" color screen
  • Double viewer or LCD screen for easy photo taking
  • Connector cables for TV or PC hook-up
  • Photo editing capabilities
  • SD card slot for extra memory
  • Three preschool games
  • Changeable faceplates
  • 16MB internal memory

Product Description

Little ones will have a blast taking candid pics with their Kidizoom Camera.

Got this camera as a present for my 3-year-old daughter - she loves it! She can switch it on and off by herself and is always asking for '[her] camera' so she can snap a picture. It's also absorbed a few harsh drops without any trouble.

Caveats:
- Though it's named "Kidizoom", it does not actually have any zoom functionality. (Not that a toddler would know what to do with it!)
- Don't try to use a miniSD or microSD card with an SD adapter, and MMC cards won't work either - the camera will start up and immediately shut itself down again. A cheap plain SD card does fine - I put in a 256MB SD that I had lying around and, given that the built-in 16MB held well over 100 of her pictures, I'm sure she'll never fill it up.
- Like many low-end digitals, it doesn't work all that well if lighting is dim, like indoors at night - it needs to be held more still than a toddler can manage. There is a flash, but it will totally bleach out anything taken at toddler-interest range (1-2 ft).
- Unsurprisingly, leaving the camera tethered to the computer via USB for long periods (like overnight) will kill the batteries stone dead. As other reviews have mentioned, you will lose all the pictures stored in the camera's memory if this happens, which could result in tears - so put in that cheap SD card and set it as the default! Pictures saved there will survive a battery outage.
- Videos are very low-res, so don't expect to show them on anything bigger than the built-in screen or postage-stamp size on a computer's media player. The microphone also records at a rather low volume.

4 AA rechargeables and the above-mentioned 256MB SD card later, my daughter is very pleased with her birthday present. I suspect she'll be using this camera for years!

I got this camera for my 2 year old, in an attempt to keep her away from MY camera. It's a great little camera. It has a color LCD on the back so she can review her photos, a flash with three settings (on, off, auto) (which, in on and auto, can bleach things out as she holds the camera about 1 foot away from her subject), takes video (the sound is of poor quality unless you are right in front of the camera or the one holding the camera). The images are obviously of low quality as it's a kid's camera so if you want this for an older child so they can print out their fabulous vacation photos you will be disappointed. It's about the same quality as a cell phone camera. That said, the subject must also stay still and the person holding the camera needs to hold it stead. However, my two year old has turned out a number of good pictures, so an older kid should have no problem. I liked that the camera did video and took photos. It also has some editing capabilities - such as adding funny hats and borders to your photos right there in the camera. I haven't used the software with it to do anything, again, as it's just for my two year old, so I can't speak to it. But it's durable (she's thrown and dropped it a number of times), she's got about 200+ photos and a couple of videos on it and it still has room for more images, and the batteries seem to last a decent amount of time. It also had an auto shut off features, which is great. All in all, an excellent buy.

We returned Fisher Price FP3 Players (which are garbage) we bought our 4 y/o twin girls for two of these! The reviews for this are better than the Fisher Price Kid Tough and since we were already burned by the FP3 players, wanted to stay far away from FP, we chose the Vtech. We are so glad we did.

The controls are easy (one girl figured everything out in less than a half hour). It does video with voice, pics and has simple games. Right after buying these, we went to a wildlife park in the area. It is great to see what the kids think are important for pictures in our world. It's great watching them be creative with these.

Picture quality is not too bad for who this is designed for. Hooking up to the computer is a piece of cake! It will be great to throw all the pics of their world to CD's for them to see when they're older. The girls took great pics of themselves.

This is Highly Recommended!!! If you're torn between Fisher Price and Vtech, I'd select the Vtech over again!

This is actual video that I shot in a very well lit room. This is the BEST video I have ever gotten from the camera. The photos are about the same quality.
I would be happy with the camera as a toy if I hadn't paid $85 for it!
I would say it is worth about $20-$25, but even my 4 year old think the pictures and videos stink.

My 3 year old received this camera as a birthday gift and LOVES IT. That, in and of itself, makes the camera worth 5 stars. She is only able to turn it on and take pictures right now, but she is learning to go back and view previous pictures now. It is pretty easy. She has dropped it on several occasions and you cannot even see a mark where it hit the ground.

The cool thing for me is that when I go back and look at her pictures on the computer, I get a "glimpse" into her world... what she looks at and is interested in from her perspective. I love being able to see the world through her eyes!

I agree with previous reviewers:

- the picture quality is low

- pictures can turn out blurry if the camera isn't held steady

- pictures are "washed out" if the flash is used at a very close distance. I will say that you can change the flash settings and turn the flash off (which I don't think is a feature of other kid cameras), so I'll be teaching her how to do that when she is a little older and can grasp when to use a flash and when to turn it off

- You WILL lose all the pictures when the batteries die if you don't use an SD card and set it as the default. An SD card is a must!

Overall, this is a KID camera. It is a TOY. I do wish the picture quality was a little better, but have enjoyed watching my daughter's delight and independence with this camera. I'm pleased with the overall product.
