Why ? Is it for a class she'll be doing ?

If it is, there'll be guidelines.
If it isn't, ask HER.
(A)  Does she want a film cam at all ?
(B)  Does she want a zoom ? (Of course she does, phones don't zoom and as a beginner, she'll be much less fussed with IQ, than framing.)

Volunteer, what could possibly go wrong ?
