    Default P&S for Kids

    May have been gone over before but I want to get my kids a fairly resilient P&S cam for them to share during trips and hols. Any recommendations?

    Issues:
    Little hands
    Sort of water/dust/knock protected (not proof obviously)
    Easy to charge (plug into USB for instance)
    Easy to download via USB
    Price around $400.

    Good as a backup for me!!!

    Your thoughts welcome...

    Thanks CS'rs

    I saw my 6 yr old niece used a Finepix A850 the other day....it seems easy to use and cheap too, below $200 i believe.

    Try the Olympus Shock and Waterproof series. LOL. No worries of dropping or throwing it into water.

    Can even snap underwater and in your freezer.

    Gonna check out the Olympus with the water, drop & freeze options (dipped in ice cream or put into a glass of water are covered). Thanks dorts.

    It doesn't really matter which cam.

    My 8 & 7 years old daughters are using the Sony V1 and Konica Minolta X60 respectively. Sometimes, my elder daughter will use my Fuji 9600 or KM 5D as well.

    Good for snorkeling too.

    But image quality wise, it's normal. Not up to par with other P&S cameras.

    The olympus water/shock proof cameras seem quite good.

    Both my kids a 10 yr old and a 7 yr old share the Olympus SP560UZ and the Pentax K10D DSLR. I was surprised that my 7 yr old girl could hold the K10D with grip attached and the pics come out clear too.

    The fisher-price cam is cool and one knows if its available in SG?

    Btw, for now my 2.5yr-old has been sharing cam with my wife since about a year ago...they are using Fuji F20. Though its a little huge for his little hands, he is managing fine.
