For a few years now I've wanted to buy my grandmother binoculars with a digital camera in them so she can take pictures of the birds in the bird feeder in her backyard. I've waited year after year for the prices and MPs to get reasonable and they have yet to do so. Prices are still high and megapixels still very low. So I started looking into alternatives. One thought I had was perhaps I could get a point and shoot camera with a lens that could accommodate a spotting scope. I don't know much about digital cameras so I thought I'd see what people here thought about this idea. Some things to consider: 1) She will only be taking pictures of birds in her own small (CA sized) backyard and front yard. And only while the birds are sitting (usually at feeders). 2) Her hands are very shaky and weak so even normal binoculars are hard for her to use, due to shake. So anti-shake/tripod/light weight are all options. 3) She has a PPC Mac mini with an old CRT, and she can do simple things on the computer but finds it frustrating/confusing. She has and uses photoshop and iphoto from time to time. 4) She will want to print the images she takes in sizes between 5x7 and 8x10 (big enough so she can see them easily without glasses).
