Another Shutter Bug in the Making

Ds asked again for a digital camera of his own.
Of course I am thrilled by this, for while photographer was among his career choices last year, this year has been dominated by his plans to become an astronaut-vet (though he cried when he found out how many years of school that would take).
So the plan is to make his own digital camera the marble jar prize, and I'm online shopping for a product that meets his and my requirements. He wants it to shoot fast, have big buttons, and not be too easy to accidentally delete his pictures. I want it to be easy enough to use that he's encouraged, but not so easy that he'll grow out of it.
Our plan is to shoot photos together, and then compare the world from his perspective and mine.

Wow. I'm not a parent, but I'm impressed by your activity as a parent. That is so pro-active! I don't think I could ever do what you do.

that is WAAAAAY cool.
I have been thinking that will be one of the things that we will present our 10year old with, he has quite the eye, when he uses my camera.

Sounds like you both will have some fun times taking pictures together!

I have a digital SLR, but also have a point and shoot digital - a Canon Powershot S40. It's obviously not as fast as the SLR, but it gets the job done!
