Before I could make a suggestion I would need some additional information. What type of photographs would you be using it for. I.E. are you photographing young children running around, or landscapes while on vacation, or closeups of flowers, etc... What is your budget? Do you want interchangable lens capability. Pretty much all cameras can be used in a point and shoot fashion, and that includes the most professional DSLR cameras; it's just that more advanced cameras have more options if you ever want that functionality.

We have had very good luck with Canon Elph line. Modestly priced and they take great photos.
For something a little higher end I would look at the Canon Powershot SX610 or SX620
Personally I would recommend the SX620 as you can mount it on a tripod.
However, as Allan was getting to pointing out a lot depends on your main types of uses.
I have found that a DSLR in most cases is better for sports photography or versitility in choice of lenses.
A DSLR camera is more of a commitment in that they cost more and you may find yourself adding lenses and external flash. At which point you most likely won't change brands down the road due to what you have invested.
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Canon, Nikon or Sony DSLR cameras Best Buy carries.
Many of the DSLR cameras come packaged with 1 or 2 lenses.
Comes with 2 lenses one for really close up and wide angle shots and another for taking shots from a long way away.

At that budge you will not get a camera that has interchangeable lens capability, but going on your posts here it doesn't sound like that would be a big loss to you. I would suggest looking at this Canon SX730 point and shoot camera or look at the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX80 point and shoot camera.

Since you are beginners I think you do not need a top camera. Think the average sony you will be appropriate. Try Sony a 6000 or similar. Just in case I want to advise you for the future to buy a gimbal stabilizer https://gimbalgarage.com/best-gimbals-for-mirrorless-cameras/ for the camera/. In my opinion it is a good purchase. Very useful thing especially when traveling, especially when traveling in nature, hiking or something like this. I know for myself, I use it for almost a year and you know, it's worth.
