David took the camera challenge to a whole new level this week. He challenged me to use a $25 KIDS digital camera!! This camera is recommended for kids 3 and up. The camera feels so cheap, I seriously thought he was joking. But, nope. He was serious, and I photographed an entire portrait shoot on it.
We headed to a location downtown to meet up with our model. You have to see her reaction when I showed her the camera! My goal was to take some steamy portrait photos on this tiny kids camera.
Wonder Island kids digital camera specs:
12 megapixel photos
Camera shooting has 28 frames, 6 filters, and 10 interesting special frames to help kids record the funny moments of life and leave funny photos.
Measures 3.27 x 2.44 in

Recommended for ages 3+
Shooting with the Wonder Islands Kids Digital Camera was insanely fun. It's really easy to use (DUH! Because it's made for 3 year olds) and I loved shooting with it. You can't focus the camera. It truly is a point-and-shoot. The image quality is the major drawback. The images are very pixelated. The camera definitely produces stronger images when taken closer up. The images I shot from a distance are significantly more pixelated. The camera also struggles when it comes to highlights and shadows. Your best bet for shooting with this camera is to shoot close-up images in nice even light.
Any suggestions on what camera David should make me use in our next camera challenge video?!
