I am looking to possibly get my mom a new point and shoot digital as hers is old and she would like to get a new one. She likes Cannon so probably a Cannon it would be for her. I am not familiar with Canon so was looking for any input you guys might have. Looking to get something fairly simple (she'll mainly use the auto features, also needs to have a view finder and also has good zoom. I know the G9 & 10 are supposed to be great but something along that line is more than she needs. Thanks for any input good or bad.
