Thanks PhilR. After viewing the threads and reviews on the consumer autos I agree with what you wrote. I was looking for advice on what others have been happy with or that they have bought for elderly relatives and found them easy to use. Part of my concern is battery usage. I can keep her supplied with freshly charged AA batteries yet I know from my own digital experience some cameras are easier on batteries than others. Brands . . . I have owned Canon, Kodak, FujiFilm and Nikon.
