keeponkeepingon: Dad with bunch of kids:

ipod: great. Get an Otterbox Defender case. The 5g is a generation behind but may be better for kids as it has the lanyard attachment.(omitted din the 6th generation

Kidizoom: Owned it. Needs lots of light but of course the kids will want to use it indoors. Result: pictures look horrible kids lost interest quickly

Coolpix S33: We had the S30. bad IQ, needs lots of light, battery compartment leaked and the camera died.

Instax: $1 a picture that's not going to fly in this house.

Olympus TG-4: Really? There's like 7 current waterproof cameras with similar quality and you pick the most expensive? It may be drop proof but it's not loss proof. Panasonic TS5, TS25, Canon D20, Pentax WG-4 will hurt $100 less when the kid leaves it on the bus.

TSZ50: ? that's a real head scratcher. You basically could replace it with any point and shoot and it would be just as good/bad for kids. Pricey, chunky and has a horrible/breaky Pinocchio stick out lens.

Or about $150 refurbished from getolympus.com. I told him he can have my Panasonic G5 after mastering the TG 860. Today I was explaining the ISO and histogram.

My choise for a11 year old was the TG860. 180 degree tilting screen for selfies, slow motion videos, super macro with led, time lapse, exposure control, lot of art filters and such, wifi, you can also get a silicon jacket for extra protection. And for me this camera even supports Olympus wireless flash to some degree.
