    Why don't you list some models so we can advise you better.

    just answered a similar question in another thread.

    For Compacts, i'll recommend the new Sony TX1 or WX1.

    It has sweep panorama (the camera auto stitches a number of pictures to create a panorama shoot, so it saves u the trouble of going thru photoshop), Sony EXMOR R sensor (just FYI, ur D90 is using an older version of the EXMOR sensor. This R version is newest sensor by Sony), G lens etc...

    why not lend it to her your f31fd, or simply tell her to get a f200exr.

    Point 1,2 and 4 are quite unspecific and rather a personal preference. What is 'good video' to your sister? What is 'user frenly' [sic]? There are two sticky threads about compacts and prosumers, specs and reviews can be found online. Get the cam in your / her hands and try there.
