A lot of youngsters would like to gift their doting parents a compact point and shoot cameras, which would not only rid them of the need to wait for a film to be processed after it is clicked, it will also usher their entry into the digital world. They, however, do not realise that most parents would be rather reluctant to use cameras that involve too much understanding of how the digital era makes its cameras work. Thus, most of them just go back to their analogue point and shoot ones and the digital camera just lies around gathering dust. What they do need, is a simple camera, which is not too loaded with features or too many buttons. One such camera is the Polaroid i1237, which offers a resolution of 12mp and a 3x optical zoom value.Design and Functioning
Weighing only a 122gs and available in a sophisticated Plum Red colour, the Polaroid i1237, is one camera that combines an easy shape with an excellent grip. Some features that make it not only easy but also user friendly is the Anti-Shake Image Stabilization function which removes the effects of shake from a picture, making it clear and free from blur, the in-camera red eye removal function, which allows the user to avoid the disturbing red eye error while clicking portraits especially at night. Like other Polaroid models, the colourful digital camera has 15 different scene modes for images with 16:9 ratio, auto white balance settings and face tracking. So as to compensate for scenes with high contrast ratio between the subject and background or foreground, this camera provides the Dynamic Contrast Enhancer. It not only takes video clips with audio, it also provides the Audio tag function which lets the user tag audio to any image. It comes with 32MB of internal space and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
