What camera for a 13 year old that likes video but may also have an eye for stills?
Jan 30, 2014

I'd like to buy my son a reasonably priced camera who aside for video games I think has a potential eye for still photography.  I don't want to spend too much, approx. $100-$200 give or take, but I do want him to be able to grow with the camera and be able to also do reasonable quality video.  He'll be going to Vietnam and Korea soon and I want him to be able to document the trip in his own way.

I'm a still photography guy with a D800 and OMD but I don't know much about which P&S cameras are the best these days so any help you folks can provide would be greatly appreciated.  I'm not against buying used so something used at around $200 would also be acceptable.

Thanks guys
