Great if you know what to expect
May 14, 2018
If your expectations are realistic for this reasonably priced item, you will be happy. $70 (+$0.50/photo paper sheet) is, in my book, reasonable for a camera/printer in one, considering that there is never a need to purchase toner, and there is the option for a Mini SD/ability to save digitally. I think the manufacturer photos/videos are realistic, they make no claims to great photo quality - the best thing about this camera is the fun, instant factor. The photo quality will seem subpar, in comparison to the excellent cameras we are all used to now on our smartphones, but in good lighting (esp outdoors), the color/picture is good. Do not expect super sharp details, or super vibrant colors. Great fun for parties, photo booth option with instant gratification (photos are immediately dry, pretty darn water resistant and sticky backed for collage fun). Minus 1 star because it is shutter button is SO easy to hit, at $0.50 a pop it gets annoying (every picture taken prints, no choice), really should have a lock or require firmer pushing. Defined area in viewfinder is a bit hard to see.
Camera does beep when turned on and ready, and when shutter has been pressed. Kodak does provide a manual online, no manual included, worth a quick perusal for details like ‘don’t add more paper until empty, ‘camera holds up to 3 images’ (as in it will retain 3 photos if you’re out of paper and you have not inserted microSD).
