Instant cameras are a dime in a dozen these days, but film for Fujifilm and Polaroid cameras costs about a dollar each. It doesn’t help that kids, who love the novelty of instant cameras, are a little happy with their photos. But VTech̵
Like the KODAK Printomatic Camera, the bright blue KidiZoom PrintCam is a digital camera with a built-in thermal photo printer. Thermal paper is much cheaper than film, and it’s especially cheap if you use the KidiZoom PrintCam, which only produces black and white photos.
These photos naturally lack the fidelity of instant film. And photo paper (which is basically receipt paper) tends to lose its image quickly. That’s why the KidiZoom PrintCam can save and export color photos to a PC, keeping your child’s “good photo” every now and then from the test of time.
Being a camera for kids, the KidiZoom PrintCam is durable and has a simple button layout. It also has a flip-up camera lens, which is great for taking selfies while looking through the digital viewfinder.
VTech plans to sell the KidiZoom PrintCam for $ 75 this summer. That’s actually more expensive than the KODAK Printomatic Color Camera, but the savings should add up if your child is through a lot of film.
