I've spent a number of hours researching compact digital cameras and feature sets and seem to have narrowed the choices to the Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ5 or Canon Power Shot 870. I'm replacing her Power Shot A75 that she dropped one too many times. She's 24 years old now and is realizing the need for caring for her electronic devices. We travel extensively and she also has lived in 3 countries, traveled alone through Europe for 6 weeks after a Semester at U of Ireland, Limerick and is planning on moving to Europe in February for post graduate studies in International business. She needs a reliable, well featured P&S and I like The features of the Panasonic. This will be her Christmas gift so if i'm not finding any other product that is in this realm of value to features please offer any advice for me to look into. Your expertise and wisdom is genuinely appreciated.

Hi Gary,

May I wish you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums.

I've locked this thread and would ask that any replies be directed to your duplicate post at Researching cameras for daughter in the Buying a new camera... forum. That way members won't spend their time composing an answer which has already been offered in the duplicate thread.

Good luck with your search.

Bob
