Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

Daughter is expecting her 1st child next yr, no camera, what is a reasonably priced P&S camera that will hold up to the rigors of new parenthood/clumsey child, easy for a blond to use (j/k), but she is blond, and has a rechargeable battery, not the AA type.

Life is not a box of chocolates. It's more like a jar of jalapenos, what you do today may burn you tomorrow.

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

I don't have any good recommendations, as I am looking for a P&S myself, but I like the specs on the Samsung SL620...

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

imho, AA > lithium cells, due to price and availability. especially on power hungry point and shoots

anyways...
I'd consider the Fujifilm F200EXR, I'd love one of these for everyday use rather than dragging my DSLR's around

or a canon powershot series of sorts.

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

I know are looking for something simple, but I've had a few experiences with basic P&S cameras. The canon powershot series is one of my favorites. I bought one of these for my girlfriend, and it works great. Suprising how great the pictures actually come out. I also purchased the Nikon P90 for myself last year. Im in love with the camera. Its a bit bulkier, but the p90 gives you all the adjustments that a SLR would make available, however there is no lense options. Hope this helped a little.

cheers,
kyle

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

I have a Canon SD1000 (which is now the SD1100 or something like that, they added Image stabilization) and I really like it. It's small, but takes really good pictures and the battery lasts a long time. I really like the fact that I can also charge the battery in about 30 minutes too. The "SD" series are compact point and shoots, while the A### ones are a bit bigger, but offer more ways to change the settings.

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

I'm nowhere near a camera expert, but I just got a Kodak M341 last week:

It was on sale for ~$90 with a free 2GB SD. It has mixed reviews, but so far it's been working great for me.

Canon G10 is the best p&s in its class. I have one and consumer reports agrees. Here are some pics I took with mine...

same pic zoomed about half way...

I love the cannon powershots, and I've had a few over the years (they didn't break or anything, I just upgraded). I highly recommend them.

Re: Recommendations on Point & Shoot cameras

The G10 is a great camera, but it's on the high end of the P&S spectrum. It's almost in the entry level dslr price range. Then again, it's quite a bit more compact. If i had the budget, I would definitely consider it if I didn't feel like carrying my D3000 and lenses around.
