I like tea, travel, cameras, food and hot sauce.


Fed up of your kids stealing your expensive (and somewhat fragile) phone to take selfies? Well VTech have the answer - the VTech Kidizoom Duo 5.0 - a camera specifically made for kids.

A Camera For Beginners

The VTech Kidizoom Duo 5.0 is the perfect camera for kids who are into photography. The photo quality isn't top of the range but it's good enough as an introduction to photography. At 5mp it matches most front-facing secondary cameras that you'll find on your average smartphone. To give you an idea, in Apple terms it matches the secondary camera of the 2015 iPhone 6S and exceeds the 1.2mp front-facing camera on 2016 iPhone SE. It's certainly an improvement over the 2mp and 0.3mp camera found on the 2017 VTech Kidizoom Duo. There's also a 4 x zoom. It's a digital zoom however (the same found on phones), so it will decrease the overall quality of your photos.

Impressive Quality For A Toy

For a kid's camera though, I was quite impressed with the quality of the photos. While there is a bit of compensation for minor shakes, in low light the images can be a little blurry (the shutter speed is set a bit long). However, overtime with some practice, coordination skills, experimenting with the flash and playing with the settings a little you can largely adapt to your surroundings. The two rubber handles on either side help to keep the camera steady too and offer a little a little extra cushioning should the camera fall. If only smartphones had handles.

Robust Build

If the VTech Kidizoom Duo 5.0 should fall however, it can handle it. VTech have created something extremely robust that can really handle a bit of rough and tumble. It has been built specifically to handle drops and falls which is a great relief. It is aimed at ages 3 years and over so I wouldn't expect anything less really. There's strategic rubber in places for added grip and cushioning for added support.

More Than A Camera

But that's not all. This is the VTech Kidizoom Duo 5.0, which means it has two cameras. With one press of the dedicated lens switching button, you can switch between taking photos of people and object to selfie mode without having to turn the camera around. There's also a range of built-in effects, stamps and frames you can apply to your photos and videos. These are a bit gimmicky, but I'm sure kids will love it. If your kids are looking for something more advanced of course, you can upload photos to your Mac or Windows computer via USB and use a dedicated photo editor of your choosing.

In addition to taking photos, VTech have included a few games too. All of which can come in handy on long journey's. The LCD screen is a mere 2.4-inches though, and while that's larger than the 2.3-inch from last year's model it's worth bearing in mind if you're expecting an all-in-one entertainment system - it's not.

Great Buy

In all this is a great camera for young beginners. It's a camera that will handle knocks and falls, while teaching your child a mix of photography skills along with hand-eye coordination. The older your child gets, the more they can uncover before moving onto a more serious camera. The 156mb built-in storage could stand being a little larger. That said the 200 photo limit can be expanded via the micro SD card slot.
