Friend's daughter has expressed an interest (which happily for her appears to coincide with a popular winter festival that usually involves parents buying their kids stuff they express an interest in).
I know nothing about what's good, bad, what to look for etc when it comes to this kind of camera but said STW would! Are there 'older' models that are still worth getting that you can pick up cheaply (price is important they've just bought a new house).
Are there certain 'types' in a VHS/Betamax kind of way (showing my age) and are GoPro the best?
Any advice, experience etc most welcome. He lives in the States so any suppliers that are cheap would have to ship there etc.
