My mom loves taking photos, but struggles to get blurr free photos as she has moderate-severe tremor in her hands. Her old (and broken today by my daughter) camera had a stabilizing feature, which did seem to help, as did using 'sport' mode (high speed) as much as possible. I think a bright flash would also help. An optical viewfinder is what she is used to, and would be nice, but not essential. A battery pack, as opposed to endless AA batteries would please me. Image size is not essential as most shots are just for sharing and having snaps. She doesn't do anything fancy with her photos. Price is somewhat flexible, but I am looking for a point and shoot, not a DSLR camera. Suggestions please?
