Today's digital cameras are extremely easy to use even the most expensive and complicated options will have a point and shoot option.

Digital Camera options
1. Compact Cameras

Whilst they have the smallest amount of gadgets on them they are by far the most practical models for the majority of the population. They slip easily into pockets and purses, and if used with a decent sized memory hold hundreds of pictures.
2. Point and Shoot Cameras
These normally form the cheap end of the range however the price can be quite misleading. Cheap in this market doesn't always mean poor quality, if you have a good look through the quality of the point and shoot models on the market you will find that they do produce excellent quality pictures.
3. Super Zoom (wide focus) Cameras
If you are interested in taking artistic or landscape pictures a normal camera will not provide you with a bespoke zoom option that you will get from a more quality digital camera. The models in this range are normally much larger and less practical but for their users this practicality problem is expected and accepted. It's not the size and ease that's the most important it's the quality of the result.
