    Okay so it is, but bare with me!
    My Dad is in the market for a new camera. He currently has a rubbish point and shoot (Sony I think), which is showing its age.
    His requirements are idiot proof (he is a nightmare with all technology).
    Auto everything is a must!
    Optical zoom (his main reason for wanting to upgrade), but not interchangeable lenses.
    £200 max but would prefer to spend less.
    Built in flash or good low light capability for evenings out.

    He won't consider;
    A better camera phone, he's not interested in smart phones.
    A DSLR, it's mostly for holiday snaps.
    Second hand equipment. It's just not his thing.

    To give you an idea of how bad he is with technology, a few years ago he was complaining his camera was taking longer and longer to download (it has built in memory). I asked to have a look. Of course he had never thought to delete any of them!
