Which camera would you buy an 8 year old?
Nov 15, 2011

If you had a budget of $250-300, which digital camera would you buy an 8 year old?

I'm currently wavering between a rugged one like the Panasonic TS3 (that would hopefully last longer and be worried about less), and something with more reach like a Canon SX230 HS that would be more flexible. Pretty sure it has to have a zoom.

Thoughts?
