Corbet,

I know you didn't go with the Canon SX40 but were the limitations you describe a big enough issue to rule it out completely? Still looking for a decent camera for a 13yo that really likes photography but I don't want to drop a ton of money. The bought her a Poloroid from Kohls for cheap that takes crappy photos but was "cheap"

The SX40 seems like a decent starter camera that offers some flexibility...I don't think the low light or burst mode limitations will affect the type of photography this is likely to be used for...

$299 SX40 Kit
