Hi. My mother is going to Europe soon and I need to help her find a good basic digital camera. Something that is not too complicated but that still takes good pics. In the 150-200 range. Any suggestions would be great.

You may find Steve's Best Cameras List to be a good place to start your search.

The cameras in this list are deemed to be a good value within their market niche.

Make sure to read the review conclusion sections (last page before the sample images in each review) for comments on camera peformance and image quality.

Certainlyeither the Canon A-570IS with 7.2mp and 4Xoptical zoom at around $150, or the Canon A-720 with 8mp and 6X optical zoom at around $200, should handle the bill nicely. I have attached an A-570 photo sample for you.
