Looking for a good camera for our teenage Daughter (15 Years Old). We would like something that will do both photos and video and have the ability to save still shots from the videos. Which camera should I buy? This short questionnaire will help the rest of us make good camera recommendations for you. Please answer each question carefully and succinctly. The questions marked with a * are the most important. Budget * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible. Prefer to stay around $150-$200 but willing to go to $250-$300 if needed for the desired options. Size * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you? She needs something fairly small. Something she could carry in her pocket would be best but something slightly bigger if needed for the options needed. Features Needs to do photo and video with the ability to take still shots from the video in playback mode and/or while taking video without interupting the video. Editting options would be a huge plus but not required as she can use a computer program to do her edits. Other features are, Image Stabilization, Auto-focus, Water-proof or water resistant, Shock Proof, Color is not important but in her words "preferrally pretty (but I'm not picky, or gonna complain) but, no PINK unless no other choice is possible". How many megapixels will suffice for you? At least 16MP if possible? The more the better? * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x) Ultrazoom would be best but no less than 5X. Again more is better. * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10) 7-8. Pictures are not planned to be enlarged and if they are not bigger than 8X10. Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)? I would think Auto would be best, it could have manual settings as well as auto that she could experiment with as she developes her skills but I think auto should be best starting out. General Usage * What will you generally use the camera for? Most uses would be standard photos and action shots * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not? Not under normal use but if prints are made most would be standard 3x5, 5x7, and the biggest might be an 8x10. Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos? I would say at least half will be indoors and limited light Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos? Yes sports/action shots will be taken, I would guess around 25% or so? Miscellaneous Are there particular brands you like or hate? No brand loyalties. Are there particular models you already have in mind? No, We are starting with a blank slate so-to-speak. (If applicable) Do you need any of the following special features? (Wide Angle, Image Stabilization, Weatherproof, Hotshoe, Rotating LCD) Wide-Angle would be a plus, Image Stability, Weather proof/Waterproof/Water resistant, and a screen would be preferred. Thanks in advance to all who respond and help.
