Point-and-Shoot Recommendation?
2 months ago

A neighbor asked if I could recommend a point-and-shoot that takes good-quality photos. When I was in the market for a PAS as a vacation alternative to my DSLR, I ended up going with the Lumix LX-5 for its RAW capabilities and low-noise images. However, I don't think my friend needs something with those kind of advanced capabilities, and I don't know if she would love the slightly bulky lens....thought it might not bother her.

Money isn't really an issue but she would probably want to keep it around $250-300 (keep in mind you can buy a nice secondhand $500 camera for this.)

I think the most important thing is good image stabilization. I was organizing her photos recently and found that a lot of them were blurry. Second most important thing is simplicity. She barely knows her way around a computer. She wants a camera to set on Auto and shoot.

Any recommendations? I'm out of the loop when it comes to PAS.
