I know, i know. You get a bazillion people all the time asking about which camera to buy, but i'm hoping you won't mind this since it's not for a DSLR.
For Christmas my mum wants a nice camera. She toyed with the idea of getting a DSLR, but thinks it's a lot of money if she's not sure she would ever want to take it off of auto.
Sooo... Can anyone recommend something? We've probably got up to £250-£300, which is about $412 - $495. I don't know if we would even need to spend that much though if it's not a DSLR.
