Any suggestions of a camera to get for kids? They LOVE to take pictures but I'd rather have the flexibility of them using memory versus film for silly shots. Would really like something that would be durable , take memory cards, perhaps even with an LCD viewer... Any thoughts or suggestions?? And obviously, since this is for a six year old boy (times two since I have twins) I would prefer something under $100... :?

moxridder take a look at: the DXG-308 ar www.pricegrabber.com. Its $79 and might be the answer. Any way it is worth a look.

I bought a couple of old Kodaks on eBay for my kids - a DC240 and a DC215.

I paid less than £20 UKP each and I gave them a 128Mb card each which gives 450 images at the very best quality.

what's more, the poor battery life when these things were new was based on the capacity of NiMhs then - on 2500Mah batts they're fine

With some help in PSP you'll get useable 6"x4" s out ofenough images to make it worth the effort. My daugter fired off hundreds of shots at the zoo recently and she's delighted with the dozen or so good ones.
