    Try the Canon ixus series. I'm sure there's a model in the 300usd price range.

    Sir Saki, Sony Cybershot DSC-T50 with touch screen LCD perfect for ladies point and shoot operation with steady hand image stabilization, kaso lang po nasa mga 400U$D

    Saki,try this link: BestBuy

    Biased ako sa canon because I've owned 4 DSLR's and one point and shoot (ixus 30 3.2MP). My ixus is more than 2 years old and still gives me excellent images. If your going for a simple point and shoot nga pala, get the lowest megapixel count you can get para matipid sa memory card and it wont be a burden on your PC hard drive to save your pics. 4-5 megapixels is more than enough even if you print to 3R size. But if your going for serious photography work, ibang usapan na'yun! Kaka-adik ang photography!:hearts:

    Canon IXUS/SD series are good. Get the ones with IS (Image Stabilization), and wide angle lens.

    There are reviews that say na mahina ang flash ng T50, besides it is too pricey for its features, besides it uses a proprietary storage (Memory stick) which is not so cheap. Pero the good thing is wala siyang zoom lens na lumalabas. :banana:
