Digital Camera World Verdict

The Oaxis myFirst Camera 2 is the perfect kids' vacation camera! Its ability to capture good image quality coupled with its lightweight yet very robust form enables kids to have fun without fear of damaging the camera. The included waterproof housing that comes with the camera enables kids to take the camera in the pool, sea, and while doing activities such as kayaking or paddle boarding. The video quality is its only letdown, but it isn't enough to take away from the great experience my daughter and I had with this camera!
