Okay, so I have Nikon and Pentax gear and often shoot with Canon when doing film. Now my daughter wants a p&s camera for her birthday and I find I know absolutely nothing about those cameras, and there are hundreds of them!
So I gave myself a budget (max USD 350) and started researching and found these two Nikons fit squarely in it, together with Canon SX230 (too ugly), Fuji F300EXR and Lumix TZ10 (ZS7 in the US?).
It seems like p300 is better for low light and s9100 has a lot of zoom. The manual controls won't be of any interest. In terms of optical quality, build, functionality and ease of operation I couldn't really tell any difference. Can anyone advise? Any opinions?
