Here's a review of the Fuji A303 camera
from cnet.com. Actually, it isn't a review per se, but just a quick list of specs and some user comments. Apparently, it got good reviews from people who own one. It appears to be a good, first timer camera.
As for the storage, he'll need a bigger memory card than the 16Mb card that comes with the camera. Maybe a 64Mb card, mimimum. Go here for cnet.com's Buying guide
for digicam storage to see more info.
Also, the camera's resolution will allow 8x10 prints, but nothing really any bigger. For 8x10 you really need a 3Mp camera. Y\This one is a 3.24, so it ought to be fine.
For comparison, go here to cnet.com's digicam site
for all kinds of comparisons, news, a buying guide and other goodies.
I think this camera will do fine. I hope he has fun!
