Used Sony V3
In reply to meanwhile, Nov 16, 2011

After hobbying around in digital for the last dozen years, I rely on older cameras that I've collected. One of these, the Sony DSC V3, I might suggest finding used for your 8-yr old, though not sure how much they sell for today (though a search on Amazon suggests about $200). Basically its a well built, camera-shaped camera, with an optical viewfinder, ability to shoot in raw, has a mode dial, 7mp, etc.. Might be a good step toward an eventual DSLR if the interest holds.
