The difference with the Coolpix is that, IF the EOS-M has the same IQ as the Rebel T4i/650D, then it will make the flash requirement not so much. Maybe your mom should just have to get used to not have a flash and still be able to take picture in low light :-)
BTW I tend to be more interested in the small 90EX flash they will release with it. If it does work as a master controller on my 5DMkII for the 550EX, I'll buy it.
