Default camera for my 10 year daughter

To all,

My daughter loves to take pictures and it's time to get her own camera.

I had my eye on an Olympus D-230 $139.00 refurbished. Just about the right price for my budget.

Things I like about the camera for her:

point and shoot
size is small, could fit in her pocket or small purse
lens cover slides over and turns camera on
smart media....(I have that now on my Fujifilm 2800 zoom)
uses AA batteries.....(she can use my re-chargables)


Talking to her about the camera the ONE downside is that the movie function can't do sound. She seems to be a miniture Spielburg and movies is one thing she does with my camera.

Finally to the question: do you know of similar sized/priced cameras that will do sound?
