I'm no expert in the latest of cameras, but for the power source, i see
your point in the fact that being stuck in nowhere means that internal
battery is useless. but how frequently does this happens? if your
daughter go camping or something else, she might need a camera with
external batteries, otherwise, I find internal rechargeable batteries
much more convenient, which is my choice for electronic devices. even
better, some devices require external batteries and can be plugged to
recharge them, so you can get a rechargeable battery stick, and have the
benefit of both types, I don't know if there is cameras that use this
mode, but I've seen mp3 players and CD players that work this way.
