My 19 y.o. daughter is traveling to volunteer in Ghana for a month. I want her to take memorable photos but...

-it is the rainy season there and an expensive set up wouldn't be wise

-she is not an photo enthusiast so a DSLR with complicated settings wouldn't work

-she wants to travel light (without drawing attention to the photo shots)

I have a Nikon V1 as a walk-about camera and am happy with it. Looking for one of those but open to other opinions, insights, options, experiences.~bj

Panasonic GF6

Nikon J2 or J3

Limit it to one lens ...add in a Panasonic ts25 as a cheapo waterproof. I've been to Ghana in the rainy season. It rains ...and rains ...and rains. But the biggest problem isn't the rain, its the humidity.
