Easy to carry around, quick snap digital camera!

onegio, Ebay

  • Summary: I haven't really gotten around to using this camera, so I can't say anything about the picture quality. It looks decent enough and suits my needs in portability. I mostly like how this camera is concealable and I am able to take pictures whenever I want.

Photography Review
22 July 2012
  • Summary: In summary, it doesn't take pictures as well as my Nikon F. But, I could use it strictly for travel and I love its size. And by the way, the pictures really are pretty good.
  • Pros: If you don't use the zoom in picture mode, it is a great point and shoot digital camera. As such, it can yield nice photos. If you put a 4 gigabyte SD card into this camera, you have 12000 pictures you can take. More importantly, you can get many pictures while traveling and a whole bunch of movi...
  • Cons: You must wait for the green light while it stores your pictures. You can't rush it.

Not a bad little camera

Timothy Mott, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: I have purchased five of these to give to my technicians to capture pics of equipment on the job sites. I prefer something a little nicer for my personal use, but for basic picture taking, they work quite well and I will purchase more as the need arises.

Perfect for my Grandson

Sandy Beach, Amazon

  • Summary: My 5 year old grandson loves taking pictures but of course his parents don't want him using their camera except on special occassions under strict supervision to avoid damage to the camera. I bought this camera for 3 main reasons, price, durability and the size of the screen.

Polaroid a530

Raizy, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: I am a photographer, so I understand all the features this camera has. I purchased this for my 7 year old son for his birthday, figuring it's cheaper than the disposable cameras I've been getting him occasionally. It isn't. The battery life in this thing is barely 10 minutes!

Great For The Money

El Lippo The Trumpet Man, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: For my purposes this camera very well suits my needs. Although a tad confusing at first, it's similar to my Sony 'point and shoot' camera (the one that uses floppy disks for storage). So I more or less relied on my intuiton to use this camera.

Would have liked it if it lasted...not meant for kids

Rene C. Szatkowski, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera for $40 for my 7 year old daughter's birthday. She wanted a camera and after using her little kids one so much, we decided a cheap real one would work. Out of the box (well, the blister pack) it worked great. The camera took some great pictures...clear and crisp.

Still undecided

Jodi Knepper, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: Great price on this little gadget, but so few features. It was a Christmas gift for a 6-year-old who's had some digital camera experience. The limited functions (like "delete" and "zoom") can be tough to use, especially for her.

Dissapointing

  • Summary: We ordered this camera for our son from SANTA and it was VERY DISAPPOINTING!! We read all of the previous reviews and they seemed pretty positive. We got the camera and it looked cheap in the package.
