If your child has recently started showing an interest in photography and you are thinking about buying them their first camera, there are a few things you need to consider. As a parent you probably know that a kid’s interests can change tomorrow, next week or even next year but the good news is that you can still support their new hobby without breaking the bank.
If you aren’t sure that a brand new camera is the best route to go as your child pursues their interest in photography you can also look at buying a secondhand camera instead (or ask family members if they have an old camera they don’t want anymore!). Ask around because many photographers may be willing to sell an older backup camera. Be sure to find out about all the camera’s features and any extras that it might come with before making the purchase to ensure that it meets your specific requirements. Additionally, camera stores (like my favourite one, Saneal Camera!) are a terrific resource. Even if you don’t plan to buy new, they have a ton of information that can help you make the right decision.
Happy Camera Hunting!
