Disclaimer: We received (2) Vtech ActionCam for review. This post represents our own experience and opinions.
This summer has been a blast, so far we have traveled to Mexico and Niagara Falls and the summer is only halfway done. Who knows what other adventures are in store for us. Usually it is D, who takes the photos and chronicles our adventures as a family. Now with the Vtech ActionCam’s the boys have been helping out recording all the fun we are having.
The boys absolutely loved the ActionCam it has everything they could want to film their many adventures. The ActionCam is shaped for adventures. Similar to those action sports style cameras like the GoPro, the ActionCam is small, compact and light. The outer case has a rubber lining giving it some shock protection if it is dropped. All the buttons are made of soft rubber and the screen on the back is relatively large (1.4 inch LCD) and durable. The camera comes in two color style: yellow/grey and Purple/pink.
The cam has a number of mounts so they can take it anywhere, from mounting it on a bike or helmet to diving under water. The great thing is (at least for parent’s wallets) is that all these attachments and cases already come with the ActionCam. The ActionCam comes with a flat mount (for helmets), bike mount, mount shell, waterproof case, wrist strap and usb cable.
As a parent the thing I love is that it has a rechargeable battery (no lugging around extra batteries) which gives around 2.5 hours of video time and an expandable memory.
The camera comes with fun software installed. Kids are able to play with different filters and frames to personalize their photos. In addition, the ActionCam allow you to take stop-motion videos and time-lapse photos. On top of that the camera comes with a number of fun little games to kill time on long trips or vacations. The boys were able to take video all day and then edit photos and check out the videos right from the ActionCam.
The Vtech Kidizoom ActionCam retails for $59.99, can be found at most major retailers and definitely check out our video with boys thoughts on this great product.
