They can distort pictures, surround them with colorful frames or stamp them to make them interesting and more unique.

Tired of taking still photos? Switch to motion pictures and take movies of yourself hanging out or acting goofy with your friends. VTech Camera also has five games to spice your self up when photo-taking sessions gets boring. The large 2.4 inch screen makes navigation between the effects and games very easy.
It also has a selfie function, so you and your kids can take as many selfies as you want.
How easy is it to use?
VTech Camera is specially designed for preschool kids; the 3-5 year demographic (although suitable, according to the manufactuer, up to 9 years). The camera has two hand grips designed to enable even the tiniest hands get a comfortable grip.
The storage capacity is also high, with ability to hold one thousand photos on its memory card and a video card for more photos. A button for switching between lenses adds to the ease of use. Overall, the camera is generally easy to use once the kid has a got the hang of it.
What accessories are included?
VTech Kidzoom camera comes with an instruction manual that makes it easy for you to figure out how it works. It also comes with a set of trial batteries for you to do a trial run.
Its numerous photo-effects, games and video recording capabilities make this one of the most kid-friendly cameras in the market. Its easy-to-maneuver buttons makes it easy to use for pre-school kids. It is also suitable for expanding your child’s creativity and imagination.
2. Hardy case
The case protects the camera even after multiple falls. If your child is prone to throwing items around, you can rest assured that this camera will not break easily.This feature makes it cheap and easy to manage in the long-run.
3. Fast shutter speed
This feature enables your kid to take numerous pictures at a very fast rate. This will freeze motion if the camera moves slightly during capture thus may give better pics.
4. Two eye view finder
Pre-school kids may not be able to close one eye when detecting the view. This view finder can be used when both eyes are open making it very easy to master the art of taking photos.
1. Buttons not durable
For a camera designed for kids, the buttons come off pretty easily. The buttons that improve its functionality come off after continuous use. The buttons may function for a longer time however if your child does not continuously try to pull them out.
2. Poor picture quality
The picture quality is compromised in low lighting. It does not have the flash option so will not be suitable for taking pics where there is low light. Also, the camera has to be very still so that you can get a magnificent shot. However, it is unlikely that your child will notice the picture quality given the wide array of fun-filled effects.
Anything else you should know?
- You can exert parental controls by setting how long you want the camera to be on. This prevents kids from playing for too long.
- Volume can also be reduced or turned up depending on the kid’s preference.
- Friend’s feature allows you to take a picture of a maximum four people. It is not possible to take photos of more than four people.
I would recommend VTech Kidzoom Duo Camera for any 3 to 5-year-olds out there. It is easy to use, interesting and will introduce your child to the wonderful world of photography. Ensure however that you teach them how to take pictures while still and in natural light in order to get the maximum effect. Also, make sure that the kids do not poke or try to pull out the buttons. Otherwise, this is a great camera to increase your child’s explorative nature. Try it today!!
