V-Tech Kidizoom 180 Action Cam Review – Kids Photography

My son loves taking photographs of things we do, places we go, and of course videos of himself and his friends. However, I’m not going to buy him an expensive camera because he’s eleven and I haven’t found anything on the market geared for kids his age. That is until I found the V-Tech Action Cam 180. Now my son can enjoy taking the end of the summer photos and videos with a camera geared just for him!

The V-Tech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is like a go-pro camera for kids. Super awesome it has nifty features kids will love. They can take photographs of themselves and others with the built-in selfie lens. Videos of their latest skateboarding trick of the trail they ride on with their bike with the attachable camera holders, and so much more.

Let’s take a look…

Video: is easy for kids to manipulate. One push button and they are taking a video. Videos come with some pretty cool frames kids can use while they become the producers of their own show.

Photos: Equally as easy, just point and shoot the camera and kids can take photos of anything they want. It a small zoom lens to get up close shots, along with built-in borders that are fun for kids to add to their photos while editing.

Selfie 180 Flip: The V-Tech Action Cam has a 180-degree lens so kids can flip it forward or backward depending on what type of photo they want to take. Meaning they can — yes take a “Selfie” which is rave today amongst young kids.

Waterproof: Imagine your kids swimming at the pool, going to the waterslides or enjoying a day at the beach. With the V-Tech Action Cam 180, they no longer need to worry about getting their camera wet. It comes with a waterproof case that is perfect for both selfie portraits, videos underwater or photos while getting wild and wet.


Above Are Some Great Shots Using The Action Cam!

I love listening to my son giggle as he creates his videos. He has such a blast using his camera.Β The pictures come out pretty good with some editing. Tas took a couple of photos of his trip to Adventure Park, plus one of our kitty Oreo, and he did a press conference here in town for the Abbotsford Air Show and took some photos including some selfies with his camera, and I helped to edit them.

Key Features:

  • The camera records 240 minutes of 640 x 480 video or 278,400 photos with a 32GB microSD card (sold separately)
  • 180-degree swivel camera
  • Use included accessories to mount the camera to your bike, skateboard and more
  • Includes water-resistant case for use up to six feet underwater
  • Includes two regular games and one augmented reality game
  • A built-in rechargeable Li-ion Polymer battery
  • Expandable memory (To store all your adventures, a microSD card is required. Sold separately.)
I would suggest going out and buying an microSD card if you want your kids to really get the benefits out of this fun interactive camera. The built-in memory holds quite a few pics but after a few, you have to delete them if you want to use the camera again–and that’s no fun!

I would like to thank V-Tech for allowing us to review The Action Cam 180. V-Tech has so many interactive, learn and play toys for kids of all ages to enjoy. Visit their website at http://www.vtechkids.ca

    I think these are awesome for the kids, they always want our cameras and phones and whatnot, and now they can have their own!!

      It is cool for kids and tell me about it. My son is always asking for my phone and our phones are expensive. This way he has his own to make his own videos.
