Which point-n-shoot digicam would you suggest for someone who as a daughter with light green eyes and always gets red-eyes in every picture?

I'm not sure which is best but try to find one with a double or strobe flash, the little red lights don't work.

As far as I know, the red eye-thing is caused by the eye reflecting the light of your flash. This happens when the flash and the lens are close toghether (as its almost the case with point-and-shoot cameras). SLRs don't have it that often because the flash pops out and is further away from the lens. An extra flash to mount on top of the SLR works best (besides studio flashs on the right and left siede of the fotographer).
So, I'm not sure if there is a point-and-shoot camera at all that will give you no red eyes.

One thing for sure: These "red eye reducing flash" setting don't work. I have such a thing in my camera (Canon Ixus V) and I get red eyes very often.

Hope I could help
