3.0 out of 5 stars Good little camera with some obvious problems, January 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NEW WP5300 Pink Waterproof 12MP Digital Camera& Video Recorder(compatible with micro SD card) (Electronics)
Obviously I didn't expect to get a perfect camera for this price. I bought it for my 7 year old for Christmas and was attracted to the feature list, color, and waterproof-ness (is that a word?)

The camera is easy enough to use and operates pretty much as advertised. It's a good little camera. It's simple enough that my child began using it Christmas morning without much guidance from adults. She had mastered it within 2 days of playing.

Problems: it eats batteries like they were finger food. Get rechargeable batteries and have a set on hand to swap out. I had brand new duracells die in less than 2 hours. The zoom is trash - pictures just get fuzzy. The biggest single problem, next to the battery consumption, is the flash. It takes 20 seconds or more to charge in between each picture and is frustrating.

The pictures are quite nice but the limitations of this camera make it a no go for my recommendation. If I had a choice, I would return it and select a different model - even if it meant spending a little more.
