I'll suggest the Konica EE-100. It is a 1/2 frame 35mm with auto focus and built in flash. With the cost of film going up the way it is, 1/2 frame today is back in an environment it was originally designed for. It is larger than the XA but easier to use as it has auto advance and rewind. Only limitation is if she wants transparencies as holders are not available at most developers any longer. The 100 has a sharp lens and nicely fits into a shirt pocket plus uses AA batteries.
