My 10 year old want to make stop-motion movies, primarily Lego based. I would like to support this kind of creativity. We have an old laptop running MS Vista that belongs to him. We need a camera, editing software, and I don't know what else. A book with tips and tricks for newbies, maybe?

I have a brand new laptop running Windows 8 that I would rather not let him use, but his computer is upgradable to W8. I think the total budget for this would be around $150. This is for Christmas.
He's a very smart kid but frustration averse and I have never done any video editing at all so super fiddly software is probably not a good idea. He is pretty good at taking care of his electronics, a digital camera he got when he was five is still in good condition.
