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. :bsmilie:

Can even snap underwater and in your freezer. :bsmilie:

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.

:bsmilie: Good for snorkeling too.

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

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.:)
