p.2 #1 · Best P&S for under $200.00


Colour me surprised, every recommendation a Canon camera.

Seeing the kids are already 19 months and will soon be running around, she'll want something that can AF moving subjects. I'd convince her to spend a little more for the long run and get something like m4/3 system. Still small and compact, but infinitely better AF than any P&S and much better IQ once you go over ISO 400. Something like an EPL-3 or GX-1 for example.

+1 If $200 is an issue, multipurpose is the best way to go.

S100. Can't go wrong with this. Particularly, I like the Movie Digest feature where you take picture and a 3-5 second video as well. Video clips are automatically stitched for the day. It s awesome to see people making faces or getting ready before the picture is taken but the moment is already recorded in video. If she can also use the fill-in flash, then it is hard to take a bad picture with it.

True, but she wants to spend $200 USD or less. So it will take more than "a little more" for even an entry level M4/3 and kit zoom. In fact, she'd need to spend more than double her budget for the entry level Panasonic DMC-GF3KK and kit zoom.
