Hi all, need your valuable recommendations and/suggestions on this.
I'm getting a camera for my wife who has a phobia towards technology. She prefers dials than searching from menu. She wants something that doesn't look too much like a serious piece of kit. Black is out, WA is Greek to her, so is megapixels and optical zoom. She does not even relish bringing a charger for the proprietary battery. She prefers a plain straightforward point and shoot - figuratively and literally, and just want it to deliver something like from Giantcopy's Hokkaido series
Save from giving her the cold truth and to preserve my marriage, I eliminated the entire market of delicious offers and almost contemplating disposable ones, I'm down to the Canon E1 (even my 860IS is too much a buggeration for her).
Sweet, affordable and girly enough for my daughter, I think this is THE camera designed and created just for her. But since it's pretty new, there aren't many user reviews around. So I appreciate if anyone out there who can add some insights to this camera.
Besides, she has handled it this afternoon at the Canon shop in Harbourfront, and she is quite agreeable to it - it's just that is there an even simpler camera out there? Your suggestions and recommendations are most welcomed!
