My 10 year old daughter got this camera for Christmas this year and she absolutely loves it. It does take a minute to get the hang of taking pics because everyone is so used to using phones and digital cameras. She had a few flubs before she got the hang of it. You can purchase a selfie attachment which allows you to take selfies as well, which my daughter loves. This camera has a TON of accessories that you can buy to go with it. Stickers, the case, tons of different types of film as well as different colored lenses that give the pic a different tint. I would say the biggest downfall is the price of the film, this is the only reason for my 4 star rating. Most of the film is between $11-$15 for 10 pictures! You can go on Amazon.com and get some bundles but it's still extremely expensive for film. When you give this camera to a kid who is used to taking endless pictures with an iPod or cell phone, 10 pictures can go VERY QUICKLY! So I just tell her to be sure to take pictures she is ready to take. No just messing around with random selfies or random pictures of nothing.
Otherwise, it's GREAT!
