The Top 5 Kids Digital Cameras
'Kids Digital Cameras'
When it comes to keeping the kids entertained there is nothing better than giving them their very own 'Kids Digital Camera'. I know that my daughter loves to play with anything that I have, be it my mobile phone, laptop or as in this case my digital camera! So when I stumbled across the Kids Digital Camera Range I knew instantly what my daughter was getting for Christmas.
Below I have comprised a list of the top 5 kids digital cameras that will keep your little ones or even the older ones entertained for hours.
Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Digital Camera
The first kids digital camera on the list is the award wining Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Digital Camera. This great affordable camera is available pink or blue, and is just the right size to fit into any preschool child's hands. It features a 1.5" colour LCD preview screen which like any other camera allows you to see instantly the photo that you have just taken. A built in flash and a two grip style make is effortlessly easy for any child to take great pictures. One of the best features I feel is that the camera is waterproof in up to 3 feet of water, so there is no need to worry if it is drop in the bath or puddles outside.
The camera had a built in 64 mb memory which can easily store up to 500 pictures. Because the memory is built in there is no need to worry about investing in expensive memory cards. The camera has a total of 1.3 mega pixels which produce clear 4 x 6 inch prints. The quality may not be great for older kids or adults being as it is only 1.3 mega pixels but it is ideal for the young ones to start them off. The camera comes with all the tools needed to connect with your computer and is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Apple Mac OSX, Apple Mac OS9 and requires a USB port 1.1 or higher for computer connectivity.
VTech Preschool Learning Kidizoom Plus
Now this little camera boasts a 1.8" colour screen and is for children 3 years and up. It too has a built in flash and an easy two grip feature for those small hands. Now the real bonus with this kids digital camera is that you can record movies which a great feature to keep the little ones entertained. Also along in the bundle is a great easy to use photo editing software so kids 3 years and up can edit their photos with ease with funny hats, cool picture frames and lots more.
The big buttons make it very easy for little fingers to navigate there way around the camera. And included in the box are 2 interchangeable face plates which will change the look of the front of the camera, and there are even 3 built in games!
The internal storage in this camera is 16 mb doesn't sound like a lot but you do have the option of adding external memory by means of an SD card slot. You can upload your images to your computer via the USB cable to your windows 2000 SP3+/XP or if you own a MAC you will need an operating system x 10.0 or above. A great all rounder of a camera!
Little Tikes My Real Digital Video Camera
This strange looking contraption is actually a Kids Digital Camera that boast some great features. For starters it has a 1.7" LCD display screen for easy picture viewing. This camera comes equipped with a built in flash and light for great pictures in even the darkest conditions. It boast a 1.3 mega pixel resolution and even a 4x digital zoom. This camera also has the option of inserting an external memory card to increase the already built in 64 mb memory.
Like the above VTech Preschool Learning Kidizoom Plus camera this one can also capture movies but has the bonus of some great movie editing software that add graphics and sounds to your movies. Another great feature of this camera is that you can plug it directly into your TV or PC for video and picture viewing. Other desirable features include an built in storage area for bits and bobs. A built in microphone and multiple languages which include English, French, German and Spanish. and oh yes it is water proof to around 3 feet of water....Great camera with great features guaranteed to keep the little ones entertained for hours.
Digital Pink 626 Disney Pix Click Princess Digital Camera
Here is a kids digital camera and the lower end of the price budget. This camera has very basic features and is geared towards the younger kids. The internal memory is only 16 mb but even this can hold around 200 photos, what more does a young kid need 1000 photos!?
The camera boasts an built in flash and a 2x digital zoom - I would compare this camera to a basic mobile phone style of camera just point and shoot. But as I have mentioned this is ideal for the younger kids to get a grasp of photo taking before they move up to the more expensive cameras.
Even though this camera is at the lower end of the price range it still comes with photo editing software that enables you too add custom frames to your pictures along with Disney icons.
Great camera on a budget!
Sony Cybershot DSC-W220 12MP Digital Camera
Now we move on to my final review, i know what you are saying..this is not a toy... agreed but for the price and the features it has available this is a great camera for the older child, who is looking to move on to a proper camera.
For starters this digital camera has an eye popping 12.1 MP for great super crisp and clear photos, along with a Carl Zeiss 4x optical zoom and steadyshot image stabilization promise a perfect photo every time. This camera boasts a 2.7" LCD viewing screen showing a detailed view of every photo you take. Included in the box are all the items you would expect to find, USB cable along with a CD for editing and transferring your photos.
One of the great features i like about this camera is the Smile Shutter Technology it simply detects and captures a smiling face! what more can I say great camera and features for an overall affordable price.
