Greetings! I hope you'll bear with me while I ask what might seem like a silly question. But there seems to be a million small point-and-shoots about which I know nothing.
I am a volunteer for a local non-profit and have been providing graphic design and photography to them at no charge. My goal has been to help them brand their identity and evolve their communications. It's been interesting and challenging to bring them from "good-enough" to "wow, that's nice".
One of the issues I face with them is obtaining good quality photos for publication. There are many instances where photos are required for public relations and/or other communications and the photos are universally terrible. Some on this forum may be able to take great shots with their iPhones, but that is not true for most of the "civilians" who volunteer.
So I'm considering making a donation of a camera to the organization. The camera needs to provide enough resolution for newspaper reproduction and the occasional offset printed brochure as well as for online use. It needs to be simple to operate. There will be no post-processing, no RAW, no special lenses or attachments. Ideally the various users would simply take it out, turn it on, frame and push the button.
Any suggestions? I don't have any brand preferences and neither will they.
Thanks for your consideration and suggestions!
