Man, I'm not even patient enough to wait for film, especially while experimenting. Why make a kid suffer like that? Plus film is about $10 a roll by the time you get prints back. It wouldn't take even a few months to pay for a used DSLR at that rate.

There are plenty of used DSLR options in the $200 range. Olympus E-410 with a 14-42 for example. That's even a nice light one.

I'd still probably go with something rugged with an internal lens. A kid would like the idea a DSLR, but probably wouldn't end up bringing it too many places. (hey that probably describes the majority of adults, too!)
