When we go to Disney my SIL is going to take our dogs for us for the 5 days we are gone. She is a SAINT in my eyes for doing this! :) She will have 4 dogs in her home. Anyway, she is saving us a ton of $$ and we would like to repay her in some way. Her Kodak digi cam broke and she's been trying to save for a new one but unforseen things come up and she still has not been able to get one. So - DH and I thought we would buy one for her as a "Thank You" gift for watching the dogs. I am looking at the Nikon Coolpix L4 and Canon Powershot A430. We are trying to stay under $200 including buying a bigger card for her. Are these decent cameras? I've been reading reviews, they seem good. Which would you buy or do you have any other suggestions? She just needs a simple point and shoot, no frills as I know she will always have it in auto mode. ;) And I know she will not buy Kodak for herself because that's what she had and I now it was a nightmare for her trying to get it repaired and whatnot. I'm not sure the whole story behind it though.
