Fun, artistic digital camera for a gift?

My girlfriend has hinted she wants a digital camera for her birthday this year. I want to get her one but I know nothing about cameras and I'm overwhelmed by the information online! She hasn't had a camera before so I want to get something that's fun and easy to use. It needs to be relatively durable, as she's on the road a lot. She makes a lot of abstract visual art and I have noticed she really enjoys playing with color/distortion/zoom filters to photos on her phone...are there cameras where you can do this on the device rather than in software later? I would like to spend less than $300 but if that's totally unrealistic I am fine with knowing that too. Thanks!
(Anonymous cause she sometimes reads metafilter and I wanna preserve the surprise...)
