Fimmakers shoot with film cameras, videographers shoot with video cameras.
OK, good question. IMHO, don't get him a camera, get him a good book on photography. Take him to art museums and teach him the rules of composition, the role of light and subject. Discuss with him what makes a good photograph. Then share with him your camera, and gently critique the images he takes. Once he develops an 'eye', then work on the mechanics of taking a photograph. These are all mistakes I made with my kids. I personally think it's better to share the experience with a child, rather than turn him loose with a camera and let him wonder around with no focus (or guidance). You will both be better off for the experience.
Just put the tripod in the checked bag and make sure it has some clothes around. I have done this dozens of times, no problem.
Sorry , I meant to write macro extender!
You know, sometimes, when one is tired...
Once you owned 5D III, your 7D will more likely sitting in the bag & collecting dust.
Once you owned a 1dx, the 5d3 will look like a children's toy to you. But this is comparing apples and oranges, the 5d ff range is a completely other gear range - you get nearly two 6d or three 7d1 for one 5d3. So for those who'd like to keep their (one!) camera body price well below $2k, it will remain a struggle with Canon to decide either for good af/fps or low light capability.
Show me what your 1D X can do that make my 5D III looks like a children's toy.
