I am looking for suggestions on a decent camera for my wife this Christmas. I don't really want to spend more than $500. She has always loved taking pictures. Mostly of the kids. There would be a lot of action shots. I could see her making a hobby of it but probably not at first. We have a couple of Wal Mart $100 digital cameras that she has been using. She finally confessed she would like something better but not extremely expensive.
