Best Resistant cameras for children

In the market there are a lot of models within the label ‘ cameras for children ‘, but 99% are toy cameras or cameras with very bad specifications that carry the case with colors or drawings ‘ for children ‘ (barbie, spider man all the characters that we can imagine).

They are generally mediocre cameras. Maybe for a very small child, as a toy. Since they are toys and we can not expect image quality and performance, they are models that are well protected against shocks and are entertaining because they include fun features and games for kids.

However, I would not recommend that kind of camera for a slightly older child (from 6-7 years old) who may like to take photos or videos, and that the result is acceptably good.

If you are going to use more for photography, we are going to recommend some models of compact cameras (real, not toy) that adapt well to the use a child can make.

Criteria for choosing best Resistant camera for children

  • Cameras resistant to falls and submersibles (in case the camera falls to the river, to the sea, to the pool or to take advantage to take pictures from the water)
  • Cameras that offer acceptable video quality

  • Good grip for easy use by children (small hands)
