New camera for wife

Any suggestions for what new camera to get the wife? She wants something compact that fits in the handbag. But at the same time, it's got to have a versatile lens. Pink colour is optional. What do you guys think?

I just realised how the title of this post looks. Just to clarify, I'm looking for a new camera to buy FOR the wife. Not swapping a "new camera for wife".

lol, that was funny!

Well, do not get a Nikon Coolpix L6. No good. When I was away at Christmas a fellow holiday maker had a Canon Powershot I think it was with image stablizaton. When we compared shots, hers made my pics look like real beginner stuff! I was really impressed with what her camera could do. I had a Nikon Coolpix 3200 before present point and shoot but it was dropped a couple of times and that was a much better camera than the L6. So definitely look at Canon but I don't think Powershots come in pink.

I've seen web sites featuring a new compact from Kodak, called V803. It has 8.0mp and it comes in pink and various other colours.

Some of the little Olympus have different coloured bodies, including a pinkish red, and they're waterproof/weathersealed too.

hi there

not sure if this is related to another post on another forum but the FZ50 has been wondrful for me as a first time photographer. It has allowed me to learn at my own pace by starting on auto and then progressing to manual ans hutter settings. Its reasonably priced for a 10 megapixel and its quality is good. As one gets better you can add telescopic adapters, wide angle lenses and all sorts of others. I have had it for 10 months now and havent looked back
