If you're looking for a Canon camera, don't bypass checking out their refurbished cameras: https://shop.usa.canon.com …powershot-digital-cameras.
I've purchased a few refurbished products straight from Canon before. The products I've received were like new, no scratches, no dents or any sign of being used. Plus, Canon offers the same 1-year warranty which is very appealing.
This is a good time to purchase from the refurbished store since they're having their Spring sale, extra discounts, on many of their products.
I recently wanted a compact camera with good video quality in low light but could not pay more than $500. After researching on models and prices, I settled on the Canon PowerShot G7 X mark ii (I'm not saying you should get this model in your daughter situation). What helped my decision was the price that Canon offered for its refurbished product. It was much lower than anyone else was offering. I saved quite a bit and received a "like new" camera. Plus, I received a more reliable product than I would have when purchasing used from a consumer.
