Re: Which camera would you buy an 8 year old?

I gave my daughter my canon SX10IS but it was a bit big for her.

We got her a Nikon S3100 for her 7th birthday this year. I quite like the camera, except for the location of the flash which seems to be where a finger ends up as the camera is very thin.

The most important factor in picking it? The camera was blue

I probably would have chosen the Canon A2200 but it was not the right colour blue

When I was 8 i had a kodak instamatic 44 that i bought at a garage sale for $1.
