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.
My son got this camera for St. Nicholas (in the morning) when he had just turned 4. That same evening he knew how to turn it on and off, how to turn on and off the flash (which is way too bright!), how look at pictures and how to delete them. Within the first days he had taken more than 100 pictures. He really loves it and since it is not overloaded with stuff that is not related to photography it is really great for small kids.
However, the hardware makes me wonder. Where do they get 24MB of memory from? There is no memory card slot and after about 42 pictures there is no space left for further pictures. It is a pinhole camera that does not need any focusing but the pictures do not get that sharp anyway. And because there is not much light coming through the lens the exposure time is pretty long which means the kids need to learn how to hold the camera still. The shutter lag is also pretty long which results in a lot of blurred pictures - because my son thinks the picture was already taken. It also needs to be formatted quite regularly (you'll know when only a hand full of pictures fit on the memory).
If my son still likes taking pictures by the time he turns 5 he will get a cheap compact camera. He will then have learned the basics.
The camera is advertised to hold 80 pictures; it does not hold anything close to that. One holds 12 and no more and the other 50. Worse yet, when you delete a photo on the camera, it does not free up disk space; you need to delete the photos (even the "deleted" ones) when connected to a computer to create space for additional photos. In addition the camera takes terrible pictures. One of the cameras was used; there were at least 10 pictures of another family on the camera and my grandson was only able to take two additional pictures before the camera was out of memory for additional pictures.
Finally, most toddlers know how to use their parents' smart phones and iPads. The controls on the camera are primitive, non-intuitive and hard to use. Whoever designed them doesn't understand how kids manipulate electronic devices.
I have nothing good to say about the cameras. I am returning both to Amazon.
Cons: Insultingly bad for the price. The kind of bad that will turn him off to taking pictures. $35 for a lens that's envious of a Cracker Jacks prize? $35 for 25MB of storage? Is this 1993? Of course the picture quality is as miserable as you'd expect. Responsiveness is pathetically slow, so capturing any type of image seen on the viewscreen is impossible. No, I don't expect him to be a little photographer, but it would be worth it if the one out of a hundred pics that were reasonably framed, lighted, etc. were worth looking at quality-wise.
It's $35 for the Lego name and some bright colours. You're also paying for a big insult to your child--one of those things where they figure it's for kids so screw quality. I guess Lego figured they'd be the ones to teach him his Christmas Story/Decoder Ring or his Inherit the Wind/Golden Dancer lesson.
