The camera used for this review was purchased from Amazon and should represent the device any other purchaser would receive.


Specs:


  • 12MP camera front and rear
  • 4480x2720 still image resolution front and rear, 24-bit color
  • 1920x1080 video resolution front and rear
  • Can link to a phone app via Wi-Fi
  • 32GB microSD card included (64GB stated maximum, I did not test larger cards)
  • Built in photo frames to add some fun to your photos
  • Flash with on/off control
  • Available in blue or pink
  • Works with mobile device app
  • Built in rechargeable battery – once charged the on-screen indicator remained on full during my testing.
  • Impact resistant.I simulated a typical child dropping the camera indoors (approximately 3 feet onto the floor) and it was fine, not even a mark on the pink coating.There are no sharp corners or edges to concentrate the force if a child drops the camera on their foot, for example.


Here is the video about Digital Camera features:



In the box:


The box has a full color printed top with product images and specs. Inside is a formfitting foam area to keep the camera safe and a small cardboard inner box for the cable and strap. The strap is bright yellow and uses a unique quick release system.




The camera is pink, white, and yellow but mostly pink. It has two bear-like ears on it to help with the cute factor and to provide extra grip. The camera feels small in the hand of an adult, making it nicely sized for little hands. The pink has a soft rubberized feel, not cold and hard like a cheap hard plastic shell. The overall design is a good match for the lower end of the camera's ages 3 to 12 target audience. I see a winking bear in the design, do you?


Camera inner layer: ABS material / Outer layer: Food grade silicone


Controls:


The full color printed literature in the box does a very good job explaining the camera controls, charging, and options. This is a welcome change from many devices that provide little more than a link to a web page. The front of the camera has a button to turn the flash on and off.The rear has four controls:


  • 1.Camera resolution and front/rear control
  • 2.Take photo or video button
  • 3.Four-way multi-function pad for playback, Wi-Fi control, etc.
  • 4.Red power button


The photographer can frame shots via a viewfinder or the 2-inch screen.



It's easy to start taking photos.Press and hold the red button (4) to turn on the camera. Then press the OK button (2) to take a photo. That's it! For video press and hold the OK button to begin recording.Short press the button again to stop.Short press the upper button (1) to rotate through 2, 5, 8, and 12MP photo settings.Long press button 1 to switch from front camera to rear selfie mode and back. This button might be a little more difficult for very young users.All keypresses generate a tone from the camera as feedback. Playback on the camera is typical, using the play symbol on the multi-function button (3) to enter playback mode and the other parts of the button to review and delete.This multi-function button also has a Wi-Fi symbol – more on that when we discuss the matching mobile device app.


Photos:


To judge photo quality, I compared this cute pink bear to a S9 phone and a Pentax K-50 DSLR. Obviously, there is a huge difference in price between these devices. I would not hand a DSLR to a 4-year-old and tell her to go have fun, but the little pink bear camera is perfect to be used that way. Hand this to a child at a party or on vacation and you will see the event from an entirely new perspective.


My first test was with evening sun on a bright, clear day. All three photos were taken without zoom from the same distance away from the plant. Comparing the images shows the X200 creates images a little cooler than the other cameras, and there is some distortion at the edges of the frame. This is a tradeoff to get the larger field of view.Images are shown in order: K-50, S9, X200.



Also taken at the same time of day, but looking to the east into the woods:K-50, S9, X200.Again, all cameras in auto with no zoom.



When shooting with the X200 remember that it is a fixed focus camera so keep at least an arm's length from your target. Shooting in good or moderate light is fine. The X200's flash is more like a LED flashlight than a strobe so it helps fill in shadows but does not do well shooting in very dark locations.


The typical small person photographer should enjoy the 15 different frames that can be placed on the photos. These frames show in the viewfinder before taking a picture so the subject can be framed properly. There are many different holiday, animal, and graphical themes to choose from. I picked a giraffe for my example.



Besides showing photos on the 2-inch screen, photos can be moved to a computer by removing the microSD card or with the included USB cable. This is all standard operation for digital cameras.


Android/iOS app:


The X200 has a feature that sets it apart from most other cameras.A mobile app allows remotely viewing what the X200 sees. The phone user can take photos or video, add borders, or combine photos into images that look like a scrapbook page.Depending on the child's age, this could be used on their device or on the parents' device as desired.


First, connect your device to the camera via the Wi-Fi network created by the camera. There is password protection.


Once connected start the Xiao Yi app:



Left to right across the top of the paw print is Puzzle Maker, Gallery, and Notepad.


  • Notepad is a list of the most recent files created for easy reference.
  • Gallery is the place to find all photos taken, divided into albums.
    • Phone albums – All photos on your phone, including those taken or edited in the app
    • Downloaded Albums – Only photos taken with the app
    • Undownloaded Albums – Photos on the camera, taken by the camera – can be downloaded to the phone from the app
  • Puzzle maker is the most unusual.It takes multiple photos and places them into a background to create a scrapbook-looking image (not really a puzzle as we think of one).Images can be moved and adjusted to best match the image areas of the page.The app allows any photo on the phone to be used.I used two screen capture images and a photo of my computer mouse in my example.


The larger button at the bottom of the paw is the camera control screen. This let you see what the camera sees in real-time as well as take photos remotely.



From this screen you can add borders to the image, switch between front and rear cameras, access stored images, and take both photos and videos. When you take a photo from the app there is no tone from the camera and the image appears in the app's storage, not on the phone. With the app you can turn the camera into a remote viewing camera, or just see what your child sees as he plays. Images captured in the app are 1280x720 unless they are modified to add frames or created in the puzzle maker where the resolution is larger. There is an option to share the photos from within the app. The photos saved to the device can be shared normally, such as from the phone's gallery in the case of my S9.


Summary:


This camera is designed for children to have fun and explore. The app provides a way for parents to monitor what their young children are doing with the camera and to work on creative projects with their children. The youngest users should be able to take pictures without getting confused by the controls.For older users who have their own mobile device, there are many things to do with a remotely controlled camera and its creativity software. It a good match for its target market.
