6 camera's for kids 2021

Photography is such a wonderful way to allow your child to create while have fun (with no mess).
Giving your kid a camera gives them the opportunity to to explore and see the world from a new point of view, also if they really get into photography they will never be able to afford drugs.
If you are also a photographer, getting out with you kids and their camera is a great way to spend some quality creative time together. Morning out with my daughter.

Here are a selection of my favourite to get your kids started.

No ink cartridges, toners or film are needed. The photo prints are durable, water-resistant, tear resistant, smudge free and adhesive-backed.
This camera uses a 5 megapixel sensor, with a a wide f2 lens, has MicroSD slot and Built-in lithium battery. Because it has a memory card reader it works even if there’s no paper loaded.
