Camera for my daughter

My daughter, 12, started taking interest in my photography and now she wants her own camera and is starting to save money. I've told her that I'll pay 20% of the price. Wifey argues that she only needs a cheap compact camera to bring along (Cost : 100 +) while she wants a DSLR to start with this as a hobby. Since I've got a few lenses and some equipment I thought an older Oly body, maybe with a kit lens, might be good.

I see some 410/510 bodies around for around 200 and is considering arguing with my wife to buy one of these if she really wants to take up this hobby. It will also give e quality time with my daughter as she's reaching the age of "don't want to spend time with parents".

Any other cameras, not too expensive, I should consider? E-400/500?

Re: Camera for my daughter

I would have thought the obvious ones would be E-400/E-410 & E-420
