I received the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
We are absolutely in love with the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam. When JaMonkey saw it she flipped and started telling me about how much she wanted one. This little camera is like the kid version of a GoPro. I have a GoPro and she watches all the fun ways I use it, so having her own was a huge plus. She has been using it everywhere we go.
(I'll have my video review up soon.)
The camera is only a couple inches wide, so it fits into my girls pockets easily. We took it for a few test runs in different places to see how it preforms. We attached it to her scooter to get some action shots and took it to our Girl Scout S.T.E.M. Expo. She took pictures of all her favorite things and captured video while she was riding a Hoover craft. I will say though, the photo and video quality are just better outside in natural light. That is true about all photography though.
This is an awesome gift for kids that want their own camera to capture life. You can't beat the price either. It is seriously kid tough and the waterproof case adds a new level of fun to the device. It comes with multiple mounts giving you options for how you can record. We love the bike mount because it's so versatile.
When you first get the camera, make sure you change the settings to the highest quality. It was defaulted to the lower settings.
It holds a good charge (better than my GoPro) which is important when you can't remove the battery. Like I mentioned before, the girls carry it around in their pockets to snap random pictures. I can't wait to take it swimming to test out the waterproof case.
You can shoot photos, videos, and even stop motion videos.
I highly recommend this camera for kids. It's small and easy to use. There are also fun frames and effects that you can add to your videos and pictures. Kids love creating and this allows them to do it all on their own.
Grab your VTech Kidizoom Action Cam in Yellow / Black or Purple!
Here are some pictures the girls took. (Video coming soon)
