It is also necessary to remember that even though you might gift your child a digital camera to click photographs for school projects, they will be using it to take pictures of their friends. So, look for some ‘fun’ features in digital camera. These can include colorful background images or sound effects, photographic effects that they can use to enhance images taken by them.
One more thing is ease of use. It is important that camera has a simple system through which children can easily take pictures quickly. However, you really do not need to worry about this aspect a lot because today’s children have been born in digital era. They are able to pick up things much faster than you or me, so as long as camera is good in all other aspects, even if its ‘click ability’ is a little confusing, it does not really matter. They are fast learners these days!
Last but not least, is price. While buying a digital camera for your child, it is understandable that you really do not want to spend a lot of money. There are lots of choices available in market today. The price range starts from as low as $30 and can go up to $300. So, it really depends on how much you would like to spend on camera. Start simple and upgrade if they grow out of digital camera that you buy for them. Hey share them with whole family!
