Durable - it has been dropped a few times already and sustained no damage.
User Friendly - good size for a preschooler, not awkward like the FP camera is in small hands. The buttons, overall shape and size, interface, and layout are all done nicely.
Doesn't drain the batteries - The FP one is AWFUL about that. Batteries were lucky to last a day in the FP one so we invested in rechargeables which can be a pain. We anticipated the same issue with this one but were pleasantly surprised! Nearly two weeks later we have not had to replace the factory batteries at all. The FP one has since been ignored and this is the only one either of daughters will play with now.
Features - They games are simple and easy to use. A bit over the 2 year old's head, but the 4 year old enjoys them. We have not dabbled much with the photo editing, but it seems fun. Probably something an older child would enjoy more.
Resolution - I didn't know how to rate this. The FP one is terrible, 99% I can't make out. This one is a lot better but still has much room for imnprovement. Mine don't notice this, but I think 6 or 7 year old would definitely want something better.
LCD screen - is not so small that it's ill-functioning but could stand to be a bit bigger.
~I usually go by the rule of thumb, you get what you pay for but this has definitely not been the case between the VTech Kidizoom and the Fisher-Price Kidtough. I was able to find this camera for $20 just before Christmas, and this one the best deal I have seen is $40. I only paid $20, but definitely think it's worth the $40 price tag. We will be buying a second one soon as the two kids fight over this one.
1. Build: feels very durable and solid. Comes with an attachable wrist strap.
2. Functionality: the camera is very well designed. After using the power switch to turn the camera on you are presented with 4 modes to choose from: Camera, Games, Image software and control settings. In the camera mode there is a flash option, a zoom in/out option, review picture and delete option. Using these basic functions a child can easily grasp the basics of photography while at the same time not worrying the parent about break and damage. Its 2 thumbs-up from me on these features.
3. Image quality: not bad for a $[...] camera (I usually shoot a digital SLR and am very passionate about image quality). The image is very clearly seen and with a flash, the definition is even better. The package insert claims an auto ISO and I do believe this works. The camera claims to store about 500 photos on a 64MB internal memory, and for a kid that should be plenty.
4. Computer connectivity: the camera comes with a connecting cord, and I had no difficulty connecting it to my Macbook and importing images to iPhoto.
5. Educational value: I think this is where this camera triumphs. Playing with the controls will allow my 5 year old to master the basics of photography while at the same time making it really fun. Small points like how the image quality changes with camera shake are immediately demonstrable, and allows the child to appreciate the idea of steady hands.Read more ›
