Thread: A 3 year olds Camera

    A 3 year olds Camera

    I had to share this moment, so I grabbed my Ixus P&S.

    My daughter who has just turned 3 loves taking photos, and she has found the perfect camera. She runs around saying "say cheese" and you have to stay still while she clicks the button. The result it perfect every time!



    Just like her dad, she's a left eye shooter, but good to see she's keeping both eyes open!

    I must try and find her a real camera she can play with!

    It gets better. My 7 year old granddaughter now selects mobile phone features for her mother. The camera is a priority. This is good because its not as expensive as making phone calls.

    Resurecting my old thread...My daughter is now using her toy clothes line as her new camera! I have got a photo as yet because she keeps telling me she is taking the photos and I'm not allowed to!

    It is the top section of the clothes line and is about 50cm across and there is a hole in middle, she points it at me, says 'say cheese' and then she gives the 'click' sound effect!

    She then told me it wasn't a good photo because it wasn't in focus! I almost fell of my chair with laughter!

    Kids are so creative with a great imagination. My 3.5yo also loves taking photos so she'll end up having one for her bday or xmas.

    Like Cathi mentioned, there are some in Harvey Norman for about $49. Can't recall the brand but I did pick one up to have a quick look. They are only small but idea for the little hands. Need something study for the young ones.
    Currently using Fuji Finepix S5800 with a view to buying my first DSLR in month or so.
