Gang, I hang out mostly in the Mac Rumors digital video forum, but I lurk here every once in awhile. So my wife has asked for a new digital camera for Christmas. She is not technically savvy or really have much interest in making photography a true hobby, so I don't think anything high end would be worth it. She wants a camera that does this: 1) Not heavy 2) Fast at taking pictures 3) Flip out screen Of course we don't want it to be junk either... if it can take reasonable pictures and has a larger sensor, this would be nice too. #2 is her biggest complaint about her current P&S ( old Canon A95 ) is is slow as sin, I know this is because of the autofocus but it's hard to explain that to her. She "just wants the camera to take a damn picture when she presses the button." She seems to be gravitating to cameras that have larger lenses, but are still point and shoot. I thoguht maybe the Canon SX120is might work. She loved the SX1is ( well actually the SX20is since the store didn't have the SX1 ) but I think it might be too heavy for her and I'll end up having to carrying the camera all the time. Anyone have any good suggestions?
