Okay so my mom is looking for a decent point and click with good zoom capabilities. She wants to stay around $150 but if you know of something a bit above that, go ahead and let me know. I don't know much about cameras at all but thought there could be some good advice here.
I appreciate any help.
When it comes down to point and shoots, Canon powershots are all great and generally have great user interfaces, so they're really easy to use,
Personally i'd recommend this Panasonic Lumix having both used canon and lumix (panasonic) i find that the lumix is just a little sharper, the Intelligent auto is much better and the interface is easier to understand.
I'd recommend getting to a shop and getting your hands on them and decide.
