What type of camera should I get for my 6 year old? Would love her to have her own camera as we’ll be holidaying next year and would like her to have good quality but without a hefty price tag?

  • There are some inexpensive cameras out there. I once bought my daughter a $10 camera from Officeworks to take on a school excursion. The photos were not brilliant, but okay for the price of the camera.

  • Check out your local retailers such as Harvey Norman, Good Guys, JB HI etc. They will have some great options! I would suggest the Polaroid Mini 8 Instax Camera, but then you would be spending a small fortune in film :P

  • canon are pretty good and you can get a decent camera pretty cheap

  • Thanks I think I might get one that is shock proof for those accidental drops and water proof for those accidental splash of water or in a puddle or something

  • There are lots of nifty little cameras out there suitable for a 6 year old without the hefty price tag. I would suggest visiting places like Harvey Norman or Retravision or The Good Guys

  • whatever type you get I would make sure it’s kid durable as they are known to drop them particularly when excited on a holiday

  • If you are getting a new one for you, perhaps you could give her your old one.
