Thread: Compact Camera for Kids

    Default Compact Camera for Kids

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for an entry level compact camera for my son (about 5yrs+). The purpose is to introduce him into photography.

    Was thinking to get a panasonic lumix dmc-s3 because the high iso capability (saw the review, iso 800 still good). Is this a good model? if not, what are the alternatives? My budget is below $200.

    Btw, I am using 550D.

    Thank you!

    Heck care about high ISO for him. Get him an Olympus shock and waterproof model, will be better for a kid that young. :-)

    Yup, I also think the Olympus Shock resistant and waterproof models are more suitable as kids drop cameras easily(personal experience)
