Before we gave our kids digital P&S cameras, they would carry single-use cameras on family vacations. The cost of the film, processing and printing added-up to about $10 for every 27 exposures. It was easy to spend $60 on snapshots. Now that they carry digital P&S cameras (with rechargeable batteries, of course), the cost of vacation photography is under $10 for the few dozen prints they make at Costco. I've already recovered the initial cost of the cameras, as well, and the kids use the bundled software without complaint.
