which camera for a teenager to learn photography?

My daughter is getting into photography at school and has joined the photography club. At the moment she uses her phone camera at school and my A7iV at home supervised by me.

I'd like to get her a camera that will help her learn the fundamentals. I learnt with a Pentax K1000.

The ideal solution would be if Sony made something like the fuji x100v so she could use some of my lenses. I like the idea of shutter speed dials etc.

Criteria would be:

small enough for teenager to handle

good user interface and usable dials for main settings


good lens options

Not as expensive as fuji x100v!

Any pointers would be great!
