Need help buying a Camera for GF this Christmas

by Jeagle88 - 11/21/10 7:13 PM

So black friday is coming up and my girlfriend really wants to get a new digital camera for Christmas this year. I've been trying to research cameras but i just feel like im over my head in understanding all of the different features. I've come to the conclusion that the max i can go for spending on a camera is about $200 and from looking at black friday adds i was looking at some of the following cameras..

Nikon Coolpix L110
Nikon L110 (is their a difference from CoolPix?)
Cannon SX 130is
Cannon SX 120is
Nikon Coolpix S70

Im not sure if these are the best for the price range or not?

But My girlfriend is just starting to get into photography and wants to get a new camera to take pictures of friends, family, landscapes, and some stuff for some trips we have coming up. So that being said she's not too advanced with all the modes or anything either but she told me she is really just looking for an easy to use camera that can take some high quality pics. If anyone can help me on the options I listed or point in another direction it be appreciated. Thanks.
