Picture this 

The decisive moment, that perfect shot, missed because you were waiting for your camera to be ready to take a photo again. But it's not your camera or your shooting technique – it's all down to having the right memory card. 

To prevent that annoying lag when capturing high res images and HD video, opt for a high performance memory card with a fast write speed. Now you can focus on your subject.

Great for little fingers, We bought this for our 6 year old Grandson and he loves it.
Primarily attracted to this model because it is waterproof, little fella doesn't care about rain or snow he just wants to get out there and take photos!

Photo quality is very good and compares well to many, more expensive, cameras.
I think the menu is a tad complicated for a youngster but then again, this camera is not a toy, and with a little assistance all is well.
