Childrens Digital Camera Picture Comparison
If you are wondering about image quality with the various childrens digital cameras then take a look at the following comparisons between the various Children's Digital Cameras available. We tested out the three best selling cameras for children - Vtech Kidizoom, Fisherprice Tough Kids Camera and the Lego Kids Camera.
While photo quality is important to some its worth understanding that a 5 year old isnt really going to complain about the picture quality - they arent shooting pictures for Time magazine after all. Children will just have fun snapping anything that takes there fancy whether the picture quality at the end is good or not!
Out of the three childrens digital camera the Lego Camera is going to take the biggest pictures as it has a 3 Megapixel resolution compared to 2 Megapixels for the Vtech and 1.3 Megapixels for the Fisherprice Tough Kids Camera.
Fisher Price Tough Kids Camera Test Shot
First up the Fisherprice Tough Kids Camera - this camera is the lowest resolution of 1.3 Megapixels which allows it to take pictures in a 640 x 480 resolution, the same resolution as 6 x 4 print offs from the photo store.
The size above is the full size of the picture and what you will see when you print it out to a 6 x 4 digital print off. The image quality is low and grainy but its not horrible and has don't well to capture active kids jumping around on a bouncy castle. Considering its the lowest resolution camera for children it didn't do too badly.

Vtech Kidizoom Childrens Digital Camera Test Shot
Next up we have the Vtech Kidizoom Childrens Digital Camera - it has a higher resolution than the Fisher Price alternative at 2 Megapixels compared to the Fisher Price 1.3 MP. As you can see from the image below the quality is better and the image produced will be bigger.
As you an see from the above image the Vtech has a slightly better image and it is less grainy than the Fisher Price - although there is not too much difference the Vtech costs only £33.76 from Amazon so when you compare the image quality and the cheaper price it is, in our opinion a much better option. Although it is maybe not so tough it is ideal for children who have passed that toddler stage and likely to look after their toys better.
Lego Childrens Digital Camera
The Lego children's digital camera has the highest output resolution of 3 Megapixels and its quit evident when compared to the other two (see below for the test picture). Picture quality is better and the images are much larger. This quality does come at a cost - the cheapest price of the Lego camera is £59.99 from Amazon.co.uk it is tough though and a really well made camera as you would expect from such a reputable brand such as Lego.
As you can see from the above shot its again better quality than the previous two - the image above is a 640 x 480 portrait size (the same size as the images above) but if you click on the picture you can see it in its full size.
With all things considered each Camera has its positives and negatives and while it is good to compare the image quality for each item it really wont make any difference to the child using it! They will just be happy to have free reign of a camera taking shots of anything and everything, while you will be happy they arnt going to break your expensive digital camera!
