Best P&S under $175 shipped

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This will be a gift for a 62 year old man who thinks operating a VCR is too complicated He has a Coolpix l11 that is falling apart and takes really crappy pictures in low light. Need something with a good auto mode and a rechargeable battery. I was thinking about this because of the large screen, but I don't know a lot about cameras.

From the specs it seems pretty decent. Would have to see a physical review to know for sure.

Brands that are usually good bets in point and shoot models are Canon, Fuji, Sony, and Nikon. For the most part their models are very good (some exceptions). However, avoid the models that use the large touch screens (if they even fall in budget), as people say the interface gets annoying really fast.

Couldn't see why not to get it. From the looks of it looks fairly easy. I haven't really heard anything bad about Samsung. Screen is a nice size for older people, but before you make a final decision go to a local store and try it for yourself, if its too hard for you then its too hard for him.
