My partner and I are looking for a small and light camera for her to carry everywhere.
She needs it to take pictures of high enough quality for publication. (She is also getting a larger camera, maybe a DSLR like the Sony NEX-5N, as her main camera.) Most pictures are of nature and animals, but she'd also like to work with people.
She's been taking photos for a long time, but is just now getting serious about learning photography and getting pictures good enough for publication. She's not technically oriented, but has joined a local camera club and is learning. (I'm a techie, but with computers, not photography.)
This Canon (Powershot EPLH 310 HS) looks very nice. We just need some recommendations on choosing the right camera.
Aside from the actual capabilities of the camera, she needs one that is straight forward to set - with clear menus and knobs, etc..
