Stop Motion equipment for a 13 year old?

Hi, Everyone!

I hope this is the correct forum.

I'm researching this for my 13 year old. He wore out our first video camera because he was doing stop motion work with Legos.

I'm not familiar with stop motion work and hope you can help.

Does anyone know of a good used camera to do stop motion work? Can this type of work use a regular digital camera and video editing?

He doesn't know how to edit so I'm trying to find the most cost efficient method
to feed his passion.

Thanks for your help in advance!

the best way is tu buy a cheap digital SLR (better from framing).
you got Hi-res, DOF. since a memory card can fit thousands of pictures (especially if you limit to low resolutions) there is no limit.
