5 CAMERAS FOR GIVING CHILDREN (COMMUNIONS APPROACH;))

As I advance in the title, the communion season is dangerously approaching. And with it the warming of the gifts. Because, let’s face it, giving a child of this age is not as easy as it seems. Before it was, we had three toys, but now they have everything! And since this is a photography blog and we love that there are always new initiates, I have thought to give you a gift idea: a camera. Because, he has more or less hobby, it is something he sure likes and attracts him.

Cameras there are many types and prices. Just as there is no perfect camera for adults, it also does not exist for children. There is the ideal camera for everyone. Today I bring you 5 models to choose from, of different prices and benefits. Although before I tell you where to look when choosing a model for this audience, in case none of these convinces you.

HOW SHOULD A CAMERA FOR CHILDREN BE?

Although each child is a world, there are certain characteristics that it is advisable to have a camera with the children as a recipient.

    • Resistant to falls. One of the first features that you have to look at is that it is resistant to shocks and falls.
    • Submersible If there is something I see that attracts kids, it is taking pictures underwater. That they can immerse them is more than an extra, it is almost a necessity. Also if we look at it from the point of view of security, they are not as careful as an adult can be. And if it is not submersible, it will run a serious risk every time they approach a liquid medium, which are many ).
    • Picture quality. Ok, it’s a boy, which doesn’t mean you can fool him with a camera that looks like a toy. We are in the era of communication and children have now seen more images in a year than you in all your childhood. They know how to recognize a quality image of one that is not, if you do not want to take a click, try to make the camera take better photos than your mobile (which surely if you do not have it, will fall as a gift ).
    • Small and light Small camera for small person. Do not charge him with a gunman because he will leave her cornered in his room, if it is hard for us to sometimes pull our equipment, what will a child do with a camera that hinders him more than he has fun?
    • Photo and video. Ideally, take both photos and video, because they love the action. You will find it very rare if you do not have this option. In addition, having it will help stimulate your creativity.
  • Ergonomic Or what is the same (that the word is a bit ugly), that is easily manageable by their little hands. Children of the same age can have very different hand sizes, make sure that the camera you choose is suitable for their hands, can hold it well and easily reach the buttons.

That said, I present some models that may interest you:

1. EASYPIX W1024

This camera is for the tightest pockets and the most “junk” kids you think will not last long. It is the most economical but also the lowest quality. It can also be a good idea as a second camera if you already have one but are not friends with water .

characteristics

  • Sensor: 10 MP
  • Water resistant up to 3 meters
  • Zoom digital 4x

  • Price: € 59.63

Drawbacks

The screen does not have much resolution and, having no viewfinder, when it is very sunny or underwater, there is no choice but to shoot by eye and consume a lot of battery, so it is recommended to use rechargeable batteries.
