I am looking for a digital camera for my 9 year old. She is quite keen on taking pictures. I am looking at 2 cameras:
1) Canon A1000s (undeniably better then the other camera I am looking at but almost twice the price - though I can get it under £100)
2) Fujifilm FinePix A235 12MP Pink Digital Camera from Tesco (cheaper, but perhaps perfectly adequate).
So I am trying to decide is there that much value in getting the more expensive camera: will my daughter find the more expensive camera more rewarding if it produces better pictures? Even though the more expensive camera will have more features will she be able (or even want to) use them? We will be buying a basic digital photography book for her also, so she might want to experiment.
Any photography afficiondos out there with pearls of wisdom?
Thanks in advance
