Digital Camera Buying #1: making a choice

November 26, 2006 at 5:18 pm | Posted in tech | Leave a comment

My 3 year old received a digital camera for his birthday. Excessive?  Hardly.  This just shows how far cameras have come – the technology is cheap enough to sell in a format friendly for toddlers at around $60.  This Fisher-Price Kid Camera fits the bill perfectly.

There is another, more useful lesson in buying a digital camera:  buy the camera that suits your needs.  The best camera for a three year old can be dropped, thrown and has color coded buttons. 

If you are giving a camera as a gift think about the needs of the recipient.  Is this their first digital camera?  Do they love technology or are they confused by the buttons on a blender?  Do they take pictures of wildlife or your wild family?  Thinking about HOW this person will use the camera will lead you to make a good choice.
