My grandmother has a photocamera, an el cheapo thing from Trust.
She likes it to take pictures, but the screen is so small, and when in sunlight she couldnt see the screen. There's no viewfinder too.
Now, we (the whole family) were thinking of giving her a compact for her birthday. We have a budget of €90/$110 and it must be bought in a Dutch shop (online or just a shop).
Now all of you know that compacts often dont have optical viewfinders, but she just wants one.
I found the Canon IXUS 95, which is out of budget BUT has an optical v/f.
It isnt that big (her eyes arent that good anymore) but at least there is one. Is it really that small, or is it quite usable?
To me the IXUS likes to be great for her, but if you know other cameras at the called price, Id like to her that (because this camera is really too expensive).
