I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive digital camera for a Senior Citizen. Its primary focus is to take photos for the holiday. Touch Screen is ok, but definately not a lot of complicated menus or buttons. It needs to be easy to operate, and for at or around $100. Can you recommend one?

Thanks in advance!!!

Canon Elph 110 HS or a refurbished Canon Elph 300 HS.

Very thin.
f/2.8 lens better than many other compact cameras.
1080p video
Optical stabilization

Very very popular among video bloggers on YouTube.

Nikon COOLPIX S9200 16 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 18x Zoom NIKKOR ED Glass Lens and Full HD 1080p Video (Black)
Panasonic DMC-FH25K 16.1MP Digital Camera with 8x Wide Angle Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD (Black)
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Black) (2012 Model)

I own the Nikon COOLPIX P300 which I do believe has the older sensor then the Nikon s9200 (use p310), but with more manual features. I think most Point and shoot for around a $100 is the same more or less. touch screen many be on model more then $100. I panoramic shoot on these. I think Sony has 3d panorama built in on more of their models. I use it on my sony nex and 3d monitor. The p300 movie mode is very good for a P&S. All P&S has vibration reduction builtin these days.

The challenge is to find something with a viewfinder. The seniors I have in my photography class find the LCD outside panel difficult to use...especially outdoors. A few models still come with a "viewer" that actually has a small inner LCD that you see rather than optically viewing thought he lens (a SLR). I think Canon Powershots have this, bukt they are somewhat more expensive.
