I decided to buy this camera for myself just for fun, since it didn't cost too much. I was not expecting it to be so cool and fun! It takes pictures, makes videos, and has a great zoom! The camera turns to the front and back so you can take selfies too ( I don't know if that is what it is specifically meant for). It has some great effects too, like hearts and flowers. I have not used the camera in months because it died fast. It powered b four batteries, I just don't have any batteries in my house right now. This camera is a fun camera for kids, and adults too, its just that it is meant for kids. Its pretty cheap too and comes with a flash. Overall, this is great for kids, I would recommend this to my sister who has a kid who would love this. If you are a adult and want one, I recommend getting the canon a2300, a pretty good camera with similar effects to this one. As always, good luck buying a camera!
