Looks pretty good for $211.00 and shipped for free. Seems to have nice features but did not see the power supply. Does this take AA's or a lithium-ion rechargeable. I prefer the rechargeable ion. The High-Def capability to view on the tv looks cool. Get Sl33p3r opinion for sure and read some reviews. I googled Sony DSC-H10/B8.1 and found prices from 211-299. This may need an UltraII memory card to get the most out of its features.
I just bought an 8 megapix camera for $130 and feel I got what I paid for. Nice 3" screen but has some focus issues. Prints a crystal clear 8X10 so I am happy with that. Overall its Ok, I was replacing a $400 camera my little one dropped and could not justify spending more.

What does she want to use it for? If she is getting in to photography than I would suggest a DSLR camera Difference Between SLR and Point and Shoot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_single_lens_reflex_cameras#Brief_differenc e_between_a_DSLR_and_a_Digicam) With an SLR you have the ability to change lenses based on what you need. Although a bit pricey the Nikon D40X (upgraded D40, with 10 MP) is a good entry level DSLR and the Canon Rebel XTi is another great DSLR.
Sony DSC-H10 Review (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonydsch10/)
The Sony DSC-H10 looks like a great point and shoot, but you are restricted to what you can do with it (no Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual or P modes).The digital zoom on the H-10 is very good but the camera is a bit bulky for a point and shoot. If she just wants a camera to take out on rides, or just bring along with her I would suggest something a bit more compact (Nikon Coolpix), If she is interested in Photography DSLR is the way to go.
I am a bit Biased toward Nikon mainly because I shoot with one and have never had any problems. Although Canon is a great camera as well, I have used my friend Alex's Canon Rebel Xti and I didn't care much for it. With the same settings as my Nikon I just couldn't get the shots I wanted. (possibly the imaging sensor?)
Here is a comparison of the Nikon D40X, Canon Rebel XTi, Sony DSC-H10, and a Nikon Coolpix S520. Comparison Model (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_post.asp?method=sidebyside&cameras=canon_eos400d%2Cnikon_cps520%2Cnikon_d40x% 2Csony_dsch10&camuser=canon_eos400d&show=all)
And to compare any others you have in mind Here is the comparison table. Compare Several cameras side-by-side (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sidebyside.asp)
When you choose a camera I suggest buying it from Sam's Club if they have it available. If you keep the receipt, Box, all items that came with the camera, and the camera in near perfect condition, they allow you to upgrade to a better camera and you just give them your camera and pay the difference. It is the only place I know that allows you to do this.
Good luck and please post up what you're intended use is and it will narrow the field down on what you want.
