You saw the ones i took of my daughter sleeping? She took my camera early this morning and made me payback. BTW it's only the third photo she took with it. She's only 7 and i don't let her use my camera, but for her birthday gift in november i will give her first digicam. Any suggestion for a 8 years old kid? Thanks

Haha, payback.
My suggestion: give her your current camera and give yourself an excuse to upgrade. :-)

I think maybe a Nikon Coolpix 2100. It's easy to use, and the price has gone way down. You wont have the BEST quality pictures, but hey she seems like she knows how to take a basic picture already!

Onyx's idea is great too! The only thing is, kids like NEW htings hahaha still shin yand new. but really I bet she'd appreciate ANY digicam!

Go with Olympus Stylus 300 or 400.

(Almost) waterproof and very small...perfect for hands of a 7 y/o.

Olympus Ebay site has themrefurbished for ~$150-$200 (300 v. 400) depending on final bid prices.

Be sure and factor in the extra xD memory.

You can also pick up extended 2yr warranty for $49.

Somthin' ta t'ink aboot (err about!)
