My girlfriend wants a digital camera for christmas, and i am looking for suggestions on what to get. She only needs one she can carry in her pocket and will take good pictures. She won't do anything fancy with it. I would like to stay around $200, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks Ross

Ross,

I got a Cannon Powershot for my BDAY last year. IMO it's a great point & shoot camera. 5.1 megapixels, fits in your pocket... We use it for parties, nights out, bars, etc. Its a great all around camera - not the best for wakeboarding shots but gets the job done. It's about the size of a pack of cigs.

Cyber-shot® DSC-W50 Digital CameraDSC-W50


Available in silver and black, the Cyber-shot® DSC-W50 is a perfect camera for starting out right in digital photography. Featuring 6.0 megapixels, Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical zoom and high sensitivity mode, you can capture great shots, even in low-light. Shoot and store images in-camera with 32 MB1 of internal memory.


6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD
Higher megapixels gives you more detail and definition for large prints and cropping in on your subject. Sony’s advanced Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode) CCD design allows more light to pass to each pixel, increasing sensitivity and reducing noise.


Large 2.5”1 LCD Screen
The DSC-W50 has a bright 2.5” LCD screen for setting up and viewing images -- with a one touch “ Play” button that makes it quick and easy to view your photos.


Simple Controls, Function Guide
User-friendly controls and simple on-screen Function Guide text/icon display help you set up camera functions -- and you’ ll have greater creative freedom to adjust color mode (including “Natural” for subtle colors and “Rich” for more intense colors), sensitivity, brightness and image size.


High Sensitivity Mode
A new High Sensitivity Mode (ISO 1000) allows you to shoot with great results in low-light conditions -- and Sony’s original Clear RAW NR™ (Noise Reduction) image processing technology helps suppress the color noise that can accompany high-sensitivity shooting.


Carl Zeiss® 3X Optical/2X Digital Zoom/6X Total Zoom
3X Optical Zoom helps the DSC-W50 bring distant subjects closer and lets you frame shots for better composition; Sony’s precision 2X Digital Zoom provides an additional 2X magnification to zoom in close without jagged edges.


Stamina® Battery Power
With its powerful Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, the DSC-W50 can capture up to 3902 images -- enough for a week of shooting. The compact BC-CSG Battery Charger is also supplied for battery recharging on the go.


13X Smart Zoom™ Feature
Sony's Smart Zoom feature lets you magnify your subject beyond the 3x optical zoom - to 4.1x (3MP), 5.2x (2MP), even 13x (VGA). By intelligently cropping into the central portion of the scene, it avoids the image distortion of other digital zooms.


Capture Images In-Camera
With 32 MB3 Internal Memory, the DSC-W50 allows you to shoot without a flash memory card --then transfer your images to optional Memory Stick™ Duo media, upload to your computer or make prints on your digital printer.


Memory Stick Duo™ Media
The DSC-W50 has a built-in slot for optional Memory Stick Duo™ or higher-capacity Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media -- the ultra compact media for shooting, storing and sharing your photo images.

YOu can buy the w30 for about $20 less. It just has a 2" screen instead of the 2.5". That is the one I have and love it.
