Summary: The pink camera was a Christmas gift for Olivia aged almost eight and it was a "great hit" She is never without it and appears to have areal talent which is improving daily. It is light enough to carry in her schoolbag and with face definition it is a super starter camera. She gave a talk to her classmates on photography and now they are all keen on having a camera like hers!
Summary: Five years old Grand daughter announced that she wanted a pink camera. I searched and searched and went onto Amazon uk, and reviewed a few. The viviitar met our criteria and most important it is pink! I would like to try it , but it is closely guarded and it's location is a secret She is getting great results.
Summary: This camera, along with another model of Vivitar was bought for our daughters last Christmas. Both are now not functioning. This camera for my youngest daughter (7 yrs old) has been used perhaps 50-60 times, then sat dormant for a while waiting for new batteries. Installed the batteries. The camera powers up, but ONLY if I hold the power button. As soon as I take the finger off the camera goes off. Cheap rubbish works longer than this item did. NEVER PURCHASING AGAIN.
I wanted cheap and cheerful and got cheap and cheerful

Summary: Plus: up to nine megapixel pictures on single shot, and a mutli shot option Minus: screen virtually invisible in any sort of sunlight, takes ages to take a picture, and flash eats batteries like a cat eats tuna
Excerpt: My 2 and a half year old daughter had seen me taking photographs of her on a regular basis and she became fascinated with my camera. I let her hold my camera and I showed her how it worked, soon she was pointing and clicking at anything and everything. I eventually took it from her and noticed she had taken over 200 pictures with about 3 of them being any good(lol).
Pros: simple camera, easy to use, upload pics to social networking sites
Cons: 3 AAA batteries, although it does go on standby after a couple of minutes when not being used
