Pictures look lesser quality than the original Polaroids. I got it for my 10 yr old daughter and every picture is either washed out (from too much light) or super dark. There are other color settings you can use (b/w & sepia) but the sepia always turns out almost all black. It is small, and cute, and the set up of inserting the paper is easy, and the lens cover is magnetic which is convenient. I also really like how you can choose whether or not your pictures have the white border or if the image goes all the way to the edges as a camera setting. Overall though, I don't think I'd buy again, she didn't even use all the paper in the extra pack I bought her, the photos don't turn out.
