Does your young adult have a digital camera? Mind sharing the brand, and your likes and dislikes?
I'm looking for something that will take decent pictures, but it doesn't need to be professional quality. It does need to have a viewfinder (in addition to an lcd screen), and okay optical zoom, image stabilization would be nice, as well as the option to turn off the flash. Video with audio would be a bonus - that's what they love about my point-and-shoot. Super extra bonus would be that the model comes in more than one color.
I need a beginning point for my deal search, and I figure choosing a brand and model first will skinny things down fast.
