New Camera for my Mom

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
She's finally making the switch from film to digital, and she's looking for suggestions. Her budget's about $170 (probably up to $200 if it'd be worth it).

Requirements:
Point and shoot
compact enough for her purse
Comparable to film quality in 4x6 prints

The two she's looking at right now are the Sony Cybershot DSC--W350 and the Canon Powershot SD1300. Are these decent choices? Which is better? Alternative suggestions?

Look at marin's suggestions to get an idea of what sucks.
