Help shopping for a powershot/p&s
« on: May 10, 2012, 04:11:58 PM »

My sister wants to buy a camera and she's on a budget and seems to reject my advice of getting a used 20d on craigslist for 200$ and investing into a lens and such, and I don't know all that much about the market for point and shoots out there.  I am wondering if anyone can advise me on a good point in shoot that has manual controls for around 200 bucks.  Doesn't have to be Canon but it would be preferred.  Any help?

Thanks a bunch!
