For a pink camera, look at camera skins. Not sure how old your daughter is, but you may be able to find a decent camera that is NOT pink, and also a skin or wrap that can make the camera pink. I’ve seen vinyl and silicone varieties. I have not researched them extensively, but it may be worth looking into,
Not a bad idea with a skin! Still, I’m sure I’ll get some feedback that the camera itself isn’t pink! Current front-runner is a Nikon 1 J2 with it’s equally pink kit lens.
Depending on budget there is a Pink Nikon Z fc. I was driving and didn’t catch if you mentioned budget. I’m sure you said it needed to have interchangeable lenses though.
I wish a Nikon Z fc would be in the cards, but she’s six and a half years old. 🙂
Just looked up the Nikon 1 J2 Pink Kit, that is pink!
I enjoyed time with my son when he did photography at school. Didn’t quite start at six and a half years old though!
Great times ahead. 🙂
