Bought this item for my daughter for Christmas - seemed to have got good reviews and despite my preference for a Canon camera about the same price (which had far less favourable reviews for a variety of reasons), as it was a much stronger brand, I opted against my better judgement for this camera from Polaroid. Wish I hadnt. Item never worked properly from minute 1. Clearly a manufacturing fault, but still a big dissapointment for both me and my daughter. It would fail to turn on with the new Duracell batteries supplied, or with a variety of other batteries including rechargeable to no avail. Sometimes it would turn on but more often than not it wouldnt. I'm sure that they cant all be this unreliable, but you dont need to experience this kind of (christmas present for an 8 Y.O. girl) disapointment more than once. Not the sellers fault who took it back and gave a full refund without quibble. Recommended seller, not recommended product - I will never buy a polaroid camera again for these reasons..
Worth the risk? I think not.
