DPR may be the wrong place to ask this, but here goes anyway. A family friend has a condition which gives her a hand tremor. She has an old camera which gives hit and miss results. She wants to buy a new point and shoot to take photos of her young grandchild. The camera has to be small. I guess the main attributes the camera has to have is good image stabilisation and fast focusing. I have always liked small Canons, but I have the feeling that maybe Nikons have the edge in focus speed. Any suggestions gratefully received, thanks.
