Thanks for your very generous comment for this amateur photographer.
I can’t really recommend a generic camera for beginners as each person’s needs (and budgets) are different, it’s a bit like recommending a car. I would recommend doing research online and seeing what suits your needs. There are plenty of affordable cameras on the market but as with most things the more you pay the more you get. The quality of the lens and robustness of the mechanisms are important considerations and with budget point-and-shoot cameras you can’t go far wrong with Canon, Nikon or Sony (IMHO)
