I'm looking for a camera for my 7-year old daughter. She's into scrapbooking so I need something that can give a decent 4x6 print (general snapshot pictures). Thus far I've looked at:

Fujifilm Finepix A400
Canon Powershot A410
Kodak EasyShare C533
Nikon Coolpix L4


I'm leaning toward the Kodak for the way its controls are laid out--it looks very child-friendly. But the image of the Canon looks superior...

What do you all think? Is there anything else I should be looking at?

Thanks!

Dontodd-

I lean toward the Kodak C-533 more than I do the Canon A-410 just because of the simplicity of the controls and the charging stand and/or charger/printer/stand. Will you be printing 4" X 6" photos at home, or commercially?

MT/Sarah,

I think we'll be printing them commerically to start, not sure whether through an online service or local store.

One other thing I need to research--we run linux 99.99% of the time, so I need to make sure the Kodak doesn't require proprietary Windows drivers, i.e. that the camera can be recognized as mass storage device. Or I guess I could always use a card reader...

Thanks!

Dontodd-

I believe that your decision to print commercially is a good one. Printing at home is expensive. You might look into www.dimeprints.com. Let the printer be a later reward for creativity and profeciency. Merry Christmas.
