Question by Sarafina: What is best for an older person, a Nikon digital SLR or a Nikon point and shoot?
My 72 year old Grandmother wants a Nikon digital camera. I have Nikon d5000, and she wants the same one. Should I get her a digital SLR or a point and shoot? I think I should get her a point and shoot because of her age and because she isn't tech savvy, but she wants on like mine!
Please help! I want her to be happy with what I get her.

You could get her a bridge camera like the Nikon P500. They have the ease of use of a point-and-shoot but have the manual controls of a DSLR. Then there's the 36x optical zoom which really comes in handy for travel. It costs about $ 400.
