Digital Camera World Verdict

The Kidamento Model C is the smallest of the Kidmento cameras, designed for the years 3 - 7. This camera may be small but it has some surprisingly sophisticated features, such as anti-shake, burst, and self-timer, and it's one kids can find a lot of fun in. Image quality isn't a strong point but kids aren't pixel peepers!

Kidamento Model K

The Model K offers improved image quality, a cute sloth design, and a touchscreen for easy-to-navigate menus. It is slightly more expensive, but I think it is worth the extra few bucks.

This is a great alternative to the Model C. In my experience, the image quality is superior and has facial recognition included. It also comes with an underwater housing that enables you to take your photography to the pool/sea.
