If you do not want anything flash (e HD) then this is a perfect compromise, easy to use and does what it says on the tin

if you have large hands the buttons may be a bit fiddly but that may be a good thing so he doesnt hog it all the time

Cheap and easy to use, bought one for my little sisters 8th birthday and she loves it. The still images aren't that great but look slightly better once uploaded to the computer but after all it is camcorder not a camera so can't complain much

Panasonic SDR-S70

 

The SDR-S70 is lightweight, compact but offers good image quality and is easy to use. It has a very good optical zoom and can be varied to use digital zom over longer distances although the image quality begins to suffer

The bad point is that the VBK-90 battery supplied with the camera is only expected to provide a continuous battery life of forty minutes. I am not sure whether that would be further reduced by frequent use of the optical zoom as with other cameras
