K, Essex

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Interesting for a novice to use ........
Bad points:
........ but requires a lot of skill and patience to produce resonable results. Our 13year old who is used to editing home videos found it was not as exiting as he imagined. Then, second time we got it out, it would not work at all and no replacement was available so we got a refund.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
the camera was clear and was easy to use, excellent for the money, we were making animations within minutes of opening it.. if it wasn't for the fact it stopped working after a week of use, i am sure we would have never tired of it
Bad points:
the memory card slot and the battery slots where a bit rough around the edges, so i suppose you get what you pay fro, and it lasted two sessions before it died, it was a christmas present and everywhere sold out so cannot get replacement a bit miffed..

Good points:
It's brilliant. My 11 yr old and 9 yr old made a film all by themselves without any help at all. You can make a film as simple or as complicated as you like. Great fun!
