Advantages: Easy to use, robust,
Disadvantages: Goes through quite a lot of batteries
My 6 year old son got the blue Kidizoom twist camera for Christmas and it has been a huge hit with him. It looks the same as the one pictured but its blue and orange in colour.
This is a two megapixel camera that has a twisting lens designed for children to take pictures and video's. The camera features a 4x digital zoom, built-in flash, colour screen, five great games and dual view finders. It is possible to edit your photos with a variety of frames, stamps and wacky effects. The camera requires 4 AA batteries.
The camera is designed specially for younger children. The bright colours grab there attention, the chunky sides make it easy for little hands to hold as well as offering additional protection should it get dropped. At first I thought the eye pieces were a bit pointless as it has a viewing screen too but it wasn't until my youngest son aged 3 started playing with the camera that I noticed he prefered to look through them rather than at the screen. The buttons are easy to press and the camera is very robust, it has been tugged, bumped and dropped as boys will be boys and it is still working perfectly.
The camera is so easy to use, my son began taking pictures with it straight away. Then he gradually began exploring its other features, he quickly got to grips with how it worked and even began showing me games and functions I didn't know it had at first as I hadn't bother reading the instructions. He loves playing on the games, a particular favourite is a germ zapping game. I believe it goes through lots of batteries as he is on the games so much. He has a made a number of videos using it and encourges his youngers brother to do silly things and makes him the subject of his video. He also likes to edit his photo's and the camera is often filled with pictures of scary monsters. The twist function is excellent as it allows him to take photographs of himself which he can then have lots of fun editing.
Once you have taken your photos you can simply download them to you pc or laptop the camera comes with a lead that allows you to quickly transfer everything. The camera rrp is £49.99 and it seems to be that price at them moment in most stores. I paid £34.99 for mine before christmas but I have seen them from time to time on Amazon for less than £30 so its worth looking at different stores for promotions.
A final word of warning be prepared to have the most unflattering photo's taken of yourself ever as your child just snaps away taking photo after photo. Thank goodness it digital and you can just delete them.
