OK, the decision was taken (at presence of mother of my niece!). It is going to be SX-70 (or some of its variations - I need to look more into that) + TIP films. The very central reason is that the TIP films allow for alterations during development and that is what attract my niece most (she really has a crash on photography since about 6 months). The uncle will support the young artist with a couple of boxes of TIP film and a usable camera.
So - now I am out looking for a working SX-70 (and needing to lear more about it - there are several clones as far as I know).
EDIT: I do not seem to find any reasonable compilation on different SX-70. I would appreciate your help on which models are worth having a look at.
I should probably add; as the camera will be pretty much a present from me, but for technical reason will only be delivered in March, I will have a little time to use it too
