    Hi All: I'm thinking of buying a Canon A95 for my daughter for her
    14th birthday. It is pricey but I don't want to buy poor quality. I'd
    rather spend a little more and get something good. This appears to be
    a good camera and the reviews indicate that.
    Is this camera too sophisticated for a 14 year old? She is pretty
    smart when It comes to computers etc. Last year I bought her an iPod
    and she still has it and it is still in good shape. She takes care of
    her stuff as long as I put the fear of God in her regarding taking
    care of her quality stuff.

    She can put it in P mode until she feels the need of all that manual control
    on offer.

    If she gets interested in photography she will have a camera that supports
    her interest.

    No way. I'm early twenties and got a Canon FTb when I was about 14. I
    learnt a lot from having such a good camera and now am an accomplished
    photographer! This camera will last her a while to be sure

    I just got doen watching my 14 year old son teach his mom how to use the
    cell phone.

    If she's bright and interested, it'll be great. Get her to try the
    different modes, take night and macro shots, etc. She'll learn a ton.

    camera ;)
