Digital Camera World Verdict

A great little gimmick to provide entertainment for a week, also suitable as a novelty gift for the special photographer in your life, however the Paper Shoot camera is not practical enough to replace the smartphone camera many of us already carry in our pockets. The Paper Shoot camera does not compare in quality to that of the average smartphone camera, with a constant need to recharge and replace the batteries.
