Re: First Camera For My Pregnant Sister (No Photography Experience)

I appreciate that you and your sister will want good quality pictures, but virtually any camera produced in the past 10 years will do a more than satisfactory job. Someone referred earlier to Ken Rockwell, who would probably tell you to buy an inexpensive point and shoot with a zoom lens. If you want a new camera, why not buy a shockproof, waterproof compact which will survive being washed and dropped. Olympus Tough or the equivalents from Panasonic, Nikon and Fuji can be had for very modest prices. Unless you are intending to make vast prints, you won't notice the difference.
