Helpful post! Max loves to take pictures-- with his leappad, with my iphone, even with my SLR (though that's a bit dangerous for the SLR, of course!) So, I've contemplating getting a camera for him as well as the kid vs. cheap adult camera conundrum.

By the way, given your recent request for folks to buy books through your Amazon affiliate link, you should totally put in a link for the items you discuss in posts like this! (assuming it's on amazon, which I assume since basically everything is!)

I would also add that if you decide to go with a "real" camera (or any electronic) for a kid, a good option is to buy a reconditioned item. I think most of my 8 year old niece's electronics are reconditioned. These items work just fine but if something happens, you are not out as much money.

Thanks, Molly and Mandi. Molly, the links are on there -- thanks! :o) And, Mandi, I hadn't thought of that option!

My primary camera is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel T5 with a Sigma DC 18-200mm lens (1:3.5-6.3) or Canon EFS 18-55mm lens. On occasion I also use my iPhone 6. For crisper images (when I'm not in a hurry to grab the shot), I use a Dolica Proline B100 tripod. I often tweak my images using Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.
