I want to get a digital camera for a child who's seven and in the 2nd grade. Something that's simple to operate, has a large LCD screen, whose zoom goes pretty wide angle. I'd like it to be capable of shooting available light in low light levels -- not night scenes, but normally lit rooms in the house -- so that the feeling of a scene isn't automatically obliterated by the flash unless it's really necessary. Ideally, I'd love a feature where the flash wouldn't fire until the shutter speed drops below 1/30th second. Most important, the camera can't be as brain-dead as my Nikon CoolPix 990. If it has as much trouble auto-focusing as the 990, and builds in such a long and unpredictable delay, the child will only experience frustration, and learn to associate taking pictures with failure. Ideally, it'd have a dock or base station to drop the camera into for downloading into iPhoto on her Mac computer, but she can also plug in a USB cable. However it's connected to her Mac, seamless integration with Mac OS X and iPhoto is essential. I don't want to have to deal with some camera manufacturer's software. Naturally, if the camera were physically kid proof and could survive being tossed into her backpack or falling on the floor of the car, etc., that'd be a plus. Cost is a factor, but not the primary concern. I'm hoping to not have to spend over $300. Any ideas?
