I got this camera for my 11 year old kid going to Summer camp, I wanted a basic, inexpensive camera, yet not the cheapo "Disney" or "Barbie" kind. The Olympus T-100 was among the first ones with a rechargeable Lithium battery. The user interface is intuitive, and outside pictures are fine. I set the picture size to 8 MPixel (can go up to 12!). The videos are good too. The flash is limited as can be expected of similar point and shoot cameras.

perfect camera for child's first camera

This camera is light, small, it requires minimal setup out of the box, it takes good pictures, and its controls are easy to use and understand...and it comes in red! Perfect for our 8 year old daughter.

The camera is inexpensive, so I don't worry so much if she accidentally mistreats it. I like that it has a rechargeable battery, rather than AA's.

Downsides? Not many, given the price, remember, you're not spending several hundred dollars for a top of the line P&S, but if you're used to handling high-end cameras, this one is not as solidly built and put together as others, the LCD screen is smaller and less sharp and colors don't appear as good on the screen as the more expensive cameras.

But if your goal is to introduce a young person to the joys of photography, this is a good camera to consider.

    Comments about Olympus T-100 Digital Camera (Blue):

    I bought this camera to have a small sized camera that was easy to carry around when I didn't want to bring my large slr camera. I also just like having a small camera to grab for a quick shot of the family around the house. So far, it works fine for this.
    I have noticed that it is rather slow taking the shot after pushing the button, and I have missed a few good shots of the children because of this . . . they look down before it takes.
    Other than this, I haven't noticed anything else wrong with the camera.

      I bought this camera as a gift for my younger sister. I must admit its been pretty great so far. She's not into taking professional pics but the take great pics to me. The price was an incentive to purchase but the outcome of the photos is the reason we kept it.

        I bought this camera for a friend who wanted a small light non-complicated camera for her vacation trip. I find it to fit her discription and more! It is a very convenient easy to carry camera that can take surprisingly good photos.

                    I bought it for my young (5 yr old) niece. It's very easy for her to use with the basic settings. She'll probably learn additional features with time. My brother-in-law also used it a bit and found it convenient as well.

                    For this purpose, it would have been nice to have a bigger shutter button, like on some other camera brands.

                    Positives: uses an SD card and rechargeable lithium battery. Flash is decent.

                    Negatives: the small shutter button, and the preview on the LCD is strangely yellowish in tint.

                    Overall, a nice little camera for the price and for the purpose!

I found this camera and ordered one - I have created many online photo albums that capture special events. I liked it so much, I bought one for myself, as well!

                                This is an excellent camera for starters in the photography field. Easy to use and understand the instructions for usage. It has video, wide angle and zoom pictures. I bought 2 of the cameras for my children ages 7 & 9, and they had no trouble using the cameras and its features. It's light weight so it's very easy to get around. I'd reccomend this for young kids to get started with photography, and to adults who want a nice easy camera that takes very good pictures and videos.

                                  This camera is light, small, it requires minimal setup out of the box, it takes good pictures, and its controls are easy to use and understand...and it comes in red! Perfect for our 8 year old daughter.

                                  The camera is inexpensive, so I don't worry so much if she accidentally mistreats it. I like that it has a rechargeable battery, rather than AA's.

                                  Downsides? Not many, given the price, remember, you're not spending several hundred dollars for a top of the line P&S, but if you're used to handling high-end cameras, this one is not as solidly built and put together as others, the LCD screen is smaller and less sharp and colors don't appear as good on the screen as the more expensive cameras.

                                  But if your goal is to introduce a young person to the joys of photography, this is a good camera to consider.

                                    I bought this camera for my 7 year old niece, who had been using my camera to take pictures and make videos. She absolutely loves it, and hasn't put it down since she received it. It's lightweight, easy to use and the red color is great. This camera perfectly targets the tween demographic or a beginner photographer -- the quality of the camera is not solid enough for the next level. A bonus is that the video has sound -- it has a mic, but no speaker, so you'll hear the sound once you upload onto your computer. Great camera to experiment with.

                                      Im a old Olympus camera user, i started with a low budget camera, but even this one is a low budget also, is first time i see a olympus camera that the first impression was very bad.At first sight look cheap. but when you check the camera ,you confirm that, the body is not for a olympus brand.look like a forgery.

                                      I will check the functions and image quality, but either way, look like a fragile camera.
