  • Disappointing
    Reviewed by Mia Braun - October 24, 2017

    This is one purchase that I regret. The camera is a pretty color, but that is about the only positive thing I can say at this point. It is very cheap. The compartment with the batteries/memory card is very difficult to open. There is no rechargeable battery- instead, it uses 2 AAA batteries. Furthermore, it only uses micro SD cards- I found one to put in and now it has gotten stuck in the compartment and I can't get it out. I'd love to comment on the picture quality, but between the SD card not coming out and it not working when I connect the camera via the provided USB to my computer, I honestly cannot. It definitely appears that getting pictures off of the camera is very time consuming and frustrating, and I guess I'm assuming that eventually I will be able to get them off. I would not recommend this product- pay a bit more and get one that is better quality and does not have these issues.

    I bought this product to take a few underwater pics when snorkeling. This product needs 2 AAA batteries. I used 4 sets of batteries for 50 pics and 3 videos. Ridiculous! Also it's not super clear when you buy the product that there is no internal memory and you need a micro SD card take a picture. Quality of the pics were so so. I returned it!

  • The worst camera ever
    Reviewed by P.G> - December 18, 2017

    Battery compartment very hard to open, came without a user manual, the buttons on the back of the camera did not match the ones on the screen, tried to set the date and time - gave up after 30 minutes, I'm afraid to give it away- the person might hate me for the rest of his life. The camera was a gift fom my wife and daughter they thought Polaroid was a good brand ...... lesson learned.

  • Useless
    Reviewed by Rusty - December 27, 2020

    Bought this for my 4 year old to play with, but I'm returning it. Can't download the software anymore for the latest MacOS Big Sur. My computer doesn't recognize it when plugged in with the included USB cable, and I don't have a card reader. The buttons/interface are awful and way more confusing than any other camera I've ever owned. I was really hopeful that it would be better than the $30 amazon junky kids cameras but it's basically un-usable.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
