    7yr old?? DSLR? ermm... i think you better save your money on DSLR and get a pns, besides your budget can only buy a second hand camera body without lens.

    $500 basically cannot buy any Canon DSLR. If you don't mind 2nd hand cameras, there's a selection in the BnS section.

    dSLR for 7-year-old?
    wow....
    pick a light camera if you really want to get him a dSLR. something like the 350D or something. you can get one with the kit lens for $300 @ WTS: DSLR - Canon 350D body + 18-55mm IS lens.

    The 7-year-old cousin must be a genius to know how to operate a DSLR

    What's your beef? Check my statement before you go shooting yourself in the foot. I said basically cos Canon models you mentioned are already discontinued and difficult to find brand new. If you think you can still get it then tell TS where to find them. No need to shoot back at me for trying to help.

    hmm...considering you won't be able to get any new 300D/350D/10D now...
    i don't see how you can get a new 300D/350D/10D for $500.

    anyway chill guys.

    lets go back to TS question...

    ermm TS, do u seriously think a 7 year old kid is suitable to use DSLR? i have nothing against teenagers using it (since their parents is willing to buy for them and some saved up to buy for themselves)... but 7 years old, is there really a need? 7 years old is only like K1?

    why not you buy him a pns... if not a lomo cam (but expensive to burnt on films). i think that is more suitable.

    Wouldn't the weight be too heavy for him?
    A pns would be better..he can pick up basic composition before moving to dslr in future and it is light enuff for him to bring daily..

    oops haha but P2 is still very young i find.

    but unless the cousin is very keen in photography and have some talents, it is good to start young but if not... he might just have fun with it and chuck the poor DSLR one side and leave it to grow fungus.
