There are many talented professional and amateur photographers on these boards, I was wondering if anyone would give me some camera buying advice. My husband would like a camera for his birthday next week but I'm not sure where to start. He's having some health problems right now and I was thinking something without too many "bells and whistles". It will be used mostly for pictures of our grandchild and some outdoor beach and mountain photos. Probably no more than $300. I'd appreciate any advice, thanks!
