Since my sons grown up around my photography business, he started wanting to use the camera when he was about 2.  At 3 I gave him my fishing/hunting camera, an Optio W20.  He loves it and knows how to use it better than my wife.  If he's taking a landscape, he'll put in on landscape.  A photo of a family pet, he'll put it on pets, etc.  I DID put a Wii controller strap on it so its tight to his wrist in case he drops it.  I know they have shockproof cameras now, and sometime down the road Ill get him one, but this is great in the meantime.

Great idea, but I just don't have an older model digital camera that we don't use.  We have a 40D, Panny LX3, an A series Canon with an underwater housing, and a few film cameras that he's not interested in.
