Camera for 8 year old

My eight year old son is fascinated with photography and wants his own camera for his coming birthday. Which camera would be suitable for such an age group? The choices are too confusing.

To foster your child's interest, get him a decent digital camera. It will build his confidence and reduce the chance that frustration will cause him to abandon his fascination. I suggest a name-brand digital camera that costs around $100. Something with a real auto-focus lens and maybe even zoom.

I just did a quick search for "digital camera" on Amazon and found the Nikon Coolpix L20 10MP Digital Camera with 3.6 Optical Zoom and 3 inch LCD (Deep Red) for $88.95 shipped. It is 10 MP, 3.6x optical zoom, 3" LCD, and auto-focus. It's red, which kids would probably like.

Or for $129 shipped, you can get him the Canon PowerShot A1100IS 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch LCD (Silver), which has 12.1 MP, 4x optical zoom with image stabilization, 2.5" LCD, and auto-focus. The image stabilization will help your son concentrate on the subject rather than keeping the camera steady.

I think either camera is good for a child who may develop a talent in photography.
