ok since I know there's some photography peeps on here thought i'd ask...

was thinking about getting my dad a camera for xmas...hes getting old and seems to enjoy taking photos lately so thought it might be a good hobby for him. He's pretty inexperienced except for the point and shoot digital cameras, so does anyone know a good intermediate camera that might be a little bit better but not be too overwhelming for him?

I don't really know what to look for in cameras other than zoom and megapixels

You don't want megapixels, you want sensor size.

One of my photography snob friends seems to like the Sony point-and-shoots for the features offered (she works as a professional photographer and worked in a camera store in the past). I've always used the Canon Elph line just "because". Feature-wise, I think the Sony does beat out the Canon, but I haven't really looked at them very closely.

get him a black & white camera only. sophisticated people appreciate the finer aesthetic aspect along with the subtle social commentary of this form of artistry. if anyone objects call them a rube.

black & white photography is pretty awesome and lets you focus on composition rather than colour
