Product  Review:    Jam Cam 3.0

Related Links

This durable entry-level digital camera allows you to snap photos, load them on your computer, edit them, and then store or publish them. Itís an ideal starter camera for children. Basic features include an automatic flash, self-timer, and 2 resolution settings. It is defaulted to a resolution of 640 x 480 which yields 8 photos, and at lower resolution (320 x 240), 28 photos. In order to add more memory, youíll need to purchase a multimedia card (there is a slot for one on the camera). 

Its durability means you can feel confident placing it in the hands of your 6 year old, which in turn helps build confidence and pride in your child. Using the camera requires paying attention to some important basic tips. For example, there is a delay when shots are taken, so subjects should stay still when pictures are snapped. This camera requires a 9V battery. Both USB and serial cables, but USB is the preferred method, as it is both easier and faster.
