Digital Camera present for elderly parents

I was hoping someone may have a suggestion as I am looking for a camera with the following criteria:
1. AS large an LCD screen as possible
2. Ease of function simple take picture, delete unwanted idea
3. No need for video component

This camera is for an elderly couple who would simply be taking family/vacation shots and getting the memory card developed at photoshop. No cropping etc..

Sony DSC T3 is the answer for the big LCD. Function is really simple to use. But, I'm not sure how good the picture quality is.

Sony W1?????????

In reply to: Sony DSC T3

thanks for the reply but a few reviews infer that picture quality is not great. What about the Sony W1? Any ideas if this is much better

The W1 is Sony's best selling camera.

It produces very sharp pictures.
The owners seem to like it very much.

But it does have a quirk that you should know about.
Under low light and flash photography, in Auto mode the camera selects a slow shutter speed. If the camera is not held very steady, you will get blurred photos.

The work around is: when shooting under low light conditions or with flash, go to Manual mode and set the shutter speed to about 1/100th of a second.

Here are some owners opinions:
