Ask Engadget: Best simple camera for my mother?

Darren Murph

Despite what your significant other may tell you, there's really one woman that's even more important. Yup, we're talking about ma bear. And with the holidays just around the corner, Kevin's looking to make sure his mum gets exactly what she wants / needs.

"I'm looking for a digital camera for my mom, who probably would appreciate simplicity over features, and use it a few times a week at most. Ideally, it would have fewer buttons, settings, and dials, since she could easily change a setting and have no idea what she did and how to set it back. Alkaline batteries are preferred, since she often forgets to charge her cellphone. I need something with at least decent image quality, and the price tag needs to at or under $150 if possible. Help!"

Don't worry Kev, we won't let you ruin the holidays for your mother. Surely these readers will dish out a few helpful recommendations out of the kindness of their hearts. And if you're really in the giving mood, give us a question of your own to ponder at ask at engadget dawt com.
