Hi — Wondering if anyone has recommendations for a lightweight, yet good and durable camera for our daughter to bring? She normally takes photos on her phone :).
Some kind of shockproof and/or waterproof point-and-shoot camera like this one would be great for this program. There is a wide cost range for similar digital cameras, so the price and image quality depend on personal preference.
Some students more interested in photography enjoy having a digital SLR camera to take high quality photos. That option is fine as well, as long as students are aware that there is an increased risk for damage and/or theft. We recommend a waterproof bag or traveling case for more valuable cameras.
