Top of Grace’s Christmas list for Father Christmas was a camera.
In the end, Santa went with the Vtech Kidizoom.
It was tough to find many reviews for it, so I thought I’d share a few of Grace’s snaps with it so far, for anyone interested to see what the image quality is like – all of the photos in this post were taken by Grace (our 4 year old) with the Kidizoom.
The camera cost Â£40, and produces JPEGs with a resolution of 640×480. There is about 12 MB of storage in the camera, which has enough space for at least a couple of hundred pics, and an SD card slot if you need more space.
The pictures are a little fuzzy, but Grace is certainly happy enough with them.
The camera does have a flash, which means indoor pics are possible.
It can be tricky getting the distance right when using the flash – too far away and the flash is no use at all and the picture is very dark, too close and the flash is too bright creating a bright white picture. (Although this has created a couple of neat pics such as this one!)
