Topic: LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera / Software

On ThinkGeek.

On Amazon.

Just heard about this today, though apparently it's been around a while. It looks interesting although they don't provide much in the way of specs.  Curious that I couldn't find it on the official LEGO website, just other retailers.

Amazon reviews seem to suggest it's not very good, though.

Yeah, their third-party electronics are sold strictly through, well, third-parties. I've never heard anything good about it.

Re: LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera / Software

I think that it isn't worth $80 USD, & based on the reviews on Amazon.com, I think it might no function properly. It is a nice idea though.

Looks like it's generally made for kids. It looks like a nice tool, though, considering it goes onto the studs. Also seems a bit overpriced.

EDIT: Just took a good look at the pictures. The camera quality looks pretty bad.

Re: LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera / Software

I've heard that the software is buggy as all get-out, and the camera itself doesn't look terribly stable, particularly not on the included tripod.

Plus there's this gem from the 'Manufacturer's Description': "Now add your own LEGO bricks and let the creative juices flowing. Have fun with it and once you are done post your directorial debut on You Tube." Proofreading is a wonderful thing.
