    Default Should I get ND Filters?

    My 1-year-old granddaughter has a PowerShot A710IS.

    Should I get her a few ND filters as she is keen to try long exposure photography?

    Thanks.

    I've bought her a few photography magazines to improve her shooting skills:

    Agreed.
    Sion, help her register a CS account and teach her how/what to post in CS.
    By 4-5 years old, she will become the youngest senior member in CS.

    No, from the looks of it, she will become the greatest camera designer/maker. Look at the way she tries to take apart the camera to tweak some of the stuff inside...In the future she will design and make a camera capable of ISO 1,000,000,000 without any artifacts/noise, and the camera will be able to shoot 20 fps RAW with unlimited buffer

    Actually if you give her your D3s to take apart now, it will probably come back with some serious upgrades

    Her composition sometimes sucks as she frequently shoots without looking at the LCD.

    This is a mark of an over-confident newbie.
