Cameras and camcorders for Mother's Day

Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.

There's no better time to get a budding photographer mum into some new tech toys than on Mother's Day.

Cameras and camcorders for Mother's Day

For capturing memories that she can cherish for years to come, a camera or camcorder makes the perfect gift. If she's new to photography and needs something simple to point-and-shoot with, we like the Canon PowerShot A2200 and the Panasonic Lumix S3.

Mums who like a splash of colour will appreciate that lots of manufacturers have cameras in heaps of hues, including cherry-reds like the Nikon Coolpix L120. If you're feeling generous (after all, she did bring you into the world) consider an SLR for a more advanced photographer. We have a collection of the best digital SLRs for beginners, though we also like the Canon 600D and the Nikon D3100, which also feature HD video recording, and are nice and light to carry around.

Don't forget about camera bags, either — a great gift for mums who already have a camera.
