The Giz Wiz ... My First Camera


Episode 1705

Dickie D says that what's neat about myFirst Camera Insta 2 12MP Kid's Instant Print Camera, is it uses thermal printing paper so a black & white print can as little as a penny if you buy the paper in bulk! (It shoots color photos, but it doesn't print in color.) It also supports microSD cards up to 32GB. As you'll see in this week's show the photos are not great, but I think kids will love this camera. And if you happen to take a great photo, then use the SD card to print out a real selfie from MyFirst Camera decent copy.

Dickie D saw something on Amazon he had to have for repairing his glasses. The Perfect repair kit. It comes with 6 different sized precision magnetic eyeglass screwdrivers, a 1000 pieces of eyeglasses screws, nuts, and both metal and plastic washers. There's even a multi-function micro screwdriver that can fit on a keychain, tweezers, and a glasses cleaning cloth. This kit is good eyeglass and sunglasses repair and most likely for other things like electronic, computer, and jewelry repair, or fixing anything with micro screws.

This weeks' gadget is a hanging kitchen trash can. It's said to save space and help keep the kitchen clean and tidy. It works with reusable grocery bags.

The company says the trash can is made of grade environmental protection material, and I have no idea what that is, except it feels like some sort of plastic.
