    3040 costs much more than 885 but has a faster lens and better features.

    If your friend doesn't mind a lower resolution, Olympus C2040 is a good alternative. It offers Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority modes (strangely lacking in Nikon 885) which could be very useful. It also has a faster lens which helps under low-light conditions. It's cheaper too!
