Something tough
In reply to Roelandt, Nov 19, 2012

I have a 9-year old daughter, and ones in a while she is interested in photography.  The Olympus Pen's are about the right size for her hand, and she likes to shoot with ep3 and 17mm f2.8 lens - small and handy. The longer and larger lenses are still a bit too demanding.

For you, for the same purpose the Canon EOS M would be quite a good choise: ability to use all your lenses, small size, works as a backup body  and a travel camera for you... Size and easiness mean everything!

Anyway, as far as she takes the camera out with her friends, I'd like to give her something simpler. Right now we have an old Ricoh ps, and it has survived quite a lot, but I'm thinking about Oly TG-1 - it would also be a great camera on beaches and swimming pools etc, filling some potographic needs that way. Besides water, it can survive from drops, hits and cold...

Cheers!
