If you're going to give them a 28mm, it's not much different from them taking photos with an iPhone, there are just more fiddly settings getting in the way.

If they have to contend with waiting to see the developed film then things are even worse.

Better would be an OM digital with zoom lens. Then they can choose to learn the technical aspects when they are ready.

I would get an iPhone any day over a film camera.
