Kidzcam #88579 Review

My 5 year old received this Kidzcam #88579 for Christmas and what a joke! Same problems as everyone else! However I was able to use the link [in the "Problem with Sakar Kidz Cam driver" thread] for the software but now it says no pics in camera????
Hopefully they recall this waste of a product. It would have been much easier to just buy a "real" digital camera for less money!

We just bought a $20 #88379 (from a Fry's in CA) and it works fine.

The software seemed a bit dodgy to install, but it eventually worked. I think the trick is to install it first before plugging anything in. Just follow the instructions really carefuly.

Process of viewing the photos was a bit round-about, but the kids had a good laugh at the many stomach shots and the photos of their toys that they took, which made it all worth it.

We had to teach them to hold the camera still, otherwise the photos are very very blurry. (Indoor night time). Also, the viewfinder points a bit high, so the photos of people usually have their heads cut off.

Pity that there is no mac or linux driver for this kind of camera. Would have liked to set up an old laptop to automatically download and cycle through the photos they take. Maybe someone will reverse engineer the usb protocol?

In summary, I think it is an OK purchase.
