Bought one - didn't work. Exchanged for a second one - didn't work. Twice in one week my 5 year old was sorely disappointed and sad. Looks like no one's gotten this camera to work.

Had to go out and buy a special small screw driver to load the batteries into this thing. Now my son quickly took 100 pictures and I can't figure out how to delete the ones he took so he can take more. Terrible interface.
By the time I figured out how to get the batteries in, some of the markings on the buttons--play, next, etc.--were halfway rubbed off. The tiny screws that one removes to change the batteries can easily be lost. Afterwards, it didn't even turn on. It's headed back to the north pole!

Frustrating to use: touch screen is difficult -- need to tap icons multiple times before they register; not easy to target selection, keep hitting the item above or below; sliding to scroll thru selections is iffy. Screen is useless in sunlight, difficult to see what you're aiming at.

Technology is intriguing but not there yet.

With today's camera technology they could have given so much more. This camera is very short on memory, you can only take 28 pictures at it's highest resolution, which isn't great at all. Even at it's highest level, the picture quality is only about as good as some of the older cell phones. The menu navigation is a little complex as well. I probably wouldn't be as disappointed if it was sold as toy and would've cost around [...]
