Summary: I love the fact that I can plug it into my computer without having to dig out a cable, but the picture quality is terrible and it has no flash even though it is capable of taking still pictures. Spend the extra money, get a camera that you can actually get good pictures out of.
Summary: We bought three of these for our grand-kids to use while visiting us. They had a ball taking videos and still pictures. We took them to places kids ordinarily wouldn't care for, but were educational for them. They took hundreds of pictures to show their parents. One set of batteries lasted them all weekend, which surprised me because they were constantly snapping pictures and then viewing them.
Summary: The Polaroid DVF-130BC Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.0-Inch LCD works fine if you use the picture taking aspect, but if you want to record in video mode, you are wasting your time. The problem is the batteries will not support this function. Forget about using rechargeable batteries, they will not work at all.
