I often get an email offer from online stores which I am subscribed to. Sometimes I just ignore the offer especially if it’s an offer about garden or carpentry tools. Deleted. When this camera was one of the summer offerings I was surprised how cheap it was. The brand is a bit fuzzy though cos I never heard about it before. But I thought it’s a good gift to a grader. As good as his/her first digital camera may be.
I think I have found something to recommend to my colleague who’s daughter asked if she could have her own camera this summer. If I have a kid, I would have this for her/him, too. I won’t mind the brand, after all, it’s a digicam. I don’t know where this camera is manufactured from either. I can’t seem to find it online. My online store has just a variety of affordable products and this is one of them. It costs not more than $80, compared to the leading digital camera brands out there. Check below the specs and say what you think.

Maybe it is cheap because when I looked at the description, they seem to be outdated. Take for example:
5.0mp? today’s camera is already 8mp.
640x840resolution? today is 1200 resolution.
2.4″LCD? Today is already 3″LCD.
But having said this, if we are not really into good camera but prefer a simple one, this camera can be a good bargain.
Have a nice day.
As I said, it’s a good camera start for kids.
Good for kids having interest for photography. Cheap And Best.
It’s a a good gift for kids nga. Marami na ring murang digicams dito sa atin eh, less than 5k. Yung ibang name, never heard din, pero okay lang sigurong i-try.
Sean loves to take pictures too, kung anu-ano. He would use my cp camera or our digicam. So minsan nakakaktakot baka mabagsak or something, but he says careful naman daw sya.
Kung anu-anong brands na nga ang lumalabas ngayon. Mabuti naman at maingat si Sean. Mahirap nang masira kaagad, magastos.

Yeah, but not for kids, I think.
i think this is a good gift for children who want to start learning photography.
Sure, a five year old-kid can handle this naman siguro.
not a bad start for a kid, but if they are serious and want will keep at it, i might get them something they can grow into too, but still simple. that probably means, to me, a name brand. doesn’t have to be canon or nikon just something with a little history behind it. 🙂
I would prefer something better, too, if it’s a serious hobby of a kid. There are Kodak and Sony which are also good brands.

photography is a great hobby for kids. it’s good that kids learn about nature through photography.
