Jacques1981: I'm considering a Ricoh PX. It's waterproof (3 m/10 feet), shockproof (1.5 m/5 feet), it's fairly cheap (e.g. £85 on amazon.co.uk), and if it works (?), it has a cool feature of combining 4 pixels to 1, for handheld night photography. It's the same size as the Nikon S31, except for the protruding lens, so it is 21 mm thick instead of 42 mm. That matters to me if I'm going to be the one carrying the camera in my pocket between the kids' photo sessions. The one question that remains unanswered is how does the picture quality compare to e.g. the Nikon S31 mentioned above or similar cameras? And how important is this, if the purpose is just to spark interest in photography and provide a much better alternative than a smartphone? Can anyone recommend it (or against it)?
Any input will be appreciated!
From my experience video is something that kids appreciate most. Maybe that is angle to search.....All I'm saying is that photo quality is already good from all cameras from above (video too) but few more video features will be nice.I was amazed how my nine years old girl was creative in video and photo. So, with every new feature kid will think of something great.Hope this was helpful.
My nine years old girl run over canon a3000 :(But camera still works (no flash, lens ring loose, few drops....)This article was just what I needed.Going to buy this fujifilm xp60.Hoping it's tough enough.... :)Thx

RikMaxSpeed: I use an Olympus PEN with the "thirds grid" enabled when shooting - however Olympus have taken a slightly odd decision of narrowing the central bands, the lines are not equally spaced and the cross-points are somewhat closer to the centre of the frame - a good idea? what do you think?
I use Olympus xz 1, and yes, the grid it's golden ratio first and second square.
design change needed......fasteverybody sees that king is naked...
