KidiZoom Creator Cam

This latest VTech KidiZoom camera builds on many of their previous models functionality but adds green screen technology that many kids were thrilled to discover. The camera is small, which is suitable for little hands. Many kids have access to smart devices such as iPads, and several apps are designed to make movies. This camera is an all in one device and something parents felt comfortable entrusting their young children with. The KidiZoom has no conductivity to the internet, perfect for parents who are uncomfortable with kids having access to the net, and of course, to aspiring filmmakers who dont have access to a tablet or smartphone. The kit includes a green screen cloth that is large and made from sturdy material. There is no frame or holder, but there is a small selfie-stick/tripod that works reasonably well. The environments the child can place themselves in are cute, though limited. Basic editing can be done right inside the camera. There are also some games related to the greenscreen that are fun and easy to use, such as making themselves invisible. The camera has a port so the child can export their films to a computer. As kids become more adept at their filmmaking and begin to outgrow making videos inside the camera (and that is the point here), they can still use the green screen capabilities to create their images on a computer. All in all, the KidiZoom is a nice entry-level filmmaking camera and might be the first step in a trajectory to an Oscar!

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
