Many P&S cameras today are extremely competent cameras and can be obtained on eBait for a good price. They usually take SD cards and don't need the super fast cards that we use. He could just buy cards as he needs them. If he wants to shoot video also, then that may limit his choice a little, though I am sure he could find a good P&S that will do all he needs.
