The market success of the PXL2000 was ultimately quite low with its targeted child demographic, in part due to its high pricing. Introduced at US$179 (equivalent to about $430 in 2021) and later reduced to $100 (equivalent to about $240 in 2021), it was expensive for a child's toy but affordable by amateur video artists. The PXL2000 was produced in two versions: model #3300 at $100 with just the camera and necessary accessories; and #3305 at $150 adding a portable black and white television monitor with a 4.5-inch (110 mm) diagonal screen. Extra accessories were sold separately, such as a carrying case.
Peggy Ahwesh's Strange Weather (1993), which follows several crack cocaine addicts in Florida, was shot entirely on a PXL2000. This video relies heavily on the camera's portability to maintain an intimate presence.
Michael Almereyda used the camera for several of his films. Another Girl Another Planet (1992) and his short Aliens (1993) were shot with it entirely, it was used for point of view shots of the title character in Nadja (1994), and it was used by the title character to make video diaries in Hamlet (2000).
We've highlighted several good choices here, including tough cameras that can withstand drops, a DIY construction project, and analog options to teach kids what things were like before the world went digital.
Middle schoolers, teens, and freshmen on their way to college should check out the rugged Olympus Tough TG-6. It's tough, rated to withstand drops from up to 7 feet, and can survive at depths of up to 50 feet underwater, all of which make it perfect to snap candids on the lake at summer camp. A high-magnification macro shooting mode encourages creativity, as does support for slow-motion video. The camera is a bit pricey though, so it's a better choice for responsible kids who can be trusted not to lose it.
If your kid is more into video than stills, an action camera like the GoPro Hero8 Black is a good choice for making videos of their bike or skateboarding adventures. It offers strong stabilization, so it will work well as a vlogging camera too. It's tough enough to withstand drops, records sharp 4K video, and can go as deep as 33 feet underwater. The Hero8 isn't the latest model (that would be the Hero11), so you can get it for around $270, a big drop from its $400 debut price.
An interchangeable lens camera is a good choice if you're buying for an older middle school or high school student interested in photography. It opens up more creative possibilities, including manual control and the option to use macro, telephoto, and other specialized lenses.
The Panasonic Lumix G7 is a strong starter option. It has both an articulating LCD and eye-level viewfinder, works with Micro Four Thirds lenses, and fits easily into smaller hands. It's a strong value option for students enrolled in photography classes and it's compact enough to be a carry-anywhere camera for aspiring photojournalists working for the school paper or snapping candid shots for the yearbook. Young filmmakers can also look to the G7 for video. It supports 4K recording with a stabilized image sensor.
The Pentax K1000 is the classic student camera. The 35mm SLR had its heyday, but if your teen goes to a school that teaches photography the old-fashioned way, the K1000 is the best example of an all-manual, all-analog 35mm camera. Track one down, load up a roll of Tri-X(Opens in a new window), and take in the aroma of those lovely darkroom chemicals. (Photo: antalaron(Opens in a new window)/Flickr) 2b1af7f3a8
