Great camera for the money.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W620 14.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Red) (2012 Model) (Electronics)
Just bought it for my 7 y.o. Easy, great pics and 720p videos.
For the price it takes good pics, easy to use, just a perfect next step for the kids.
In fact if you are not pretending to be "a pro" but want to shot some quick family /kids /situation photos and do not want to study the manual for 2 weeks, this camera takes much better pics/video/panoramas than the smart phones, is small and light and you can just Point and Shot wihtout setting up things for 5 min first. So if you want something easy and really inexpensive -this one is a good one.
I recomended for "non serious" photographer.
99 y.o. grandma can operate it and take good shots of kids.
If you are looking for $100 range camera-do not compare it to SLR...unless you find one for $100

PERFECT!!! I am also considering purchasing this for the holidays for my 7 year old. She loves taking picture/video on her Vtech (which takes pretty crappy pics and video) and I was looking for a basic digital camera that wouldn't be too difficult for a 1st grader to operate.

I bought this for my 8 year old niece and it is just perfect for her. Easy to use in the point and shoot mode but there are some really useful features that a child could master. Make sure that you buy a memory card. I didn't realize that was needed and the internal memory fills up quickly. It is easy enought to move the pictures from internal memory to the data card but too trick for a child to do without instruction
