Camera P&S


Hi friends,

I need to buy a point and shoot camera.

1. My budget is Rs. 15,000 (plus minus 6% up or down)
2. Any brand ( Nikon/Canon if possible, others are also welcome)
3. Noob about photography (I have a old basic camera which used to have negative reels to capture photos, branded as YASHiCA). Will be basically used by myself only.
4. Have LeCrosse charger, so no issue for rechargeable/replaceable AA/AAA batteries.
5. Will be also used for capturing small video sometime, so video and voice clarity should be there.
6. Will not be used for professional work, but images and video are of professional quality, it will be good.

Thanks in Advance.

Get a Canon S100 or S110 if in budget, its one of the best P&S camera for the money.

S100 or S110 retails for 25k+ and for that price bracket RX100 is the best choice.

@OP checkout these
Canon SX260 HS - Very good IQ. Slow AF and comparitively less zoom. Good Video capture
Price: 15k odd
Canon PowerShot SX260 HS 12.1 Megapixels 20x Optical Zoom 4GB+Pouch+VAT Bill | eBay

Panasonic TZ30 - Good IQ, Fast AF, capture and better low-light. Great zoom and excellent video capture
Price: 14.5k
Panasonic Lumix ZS20 / TZ30 14.1 Megapixels Digital Camera - Silver | eBay

If you can stretch your budget to 20k then get the below one
Olympus XZ-1
http://www.ebay.in/itm/Olympus-XZ-1-...item3a81fd3ffc


ps. I own the Panny TZ30.

Sony CyberShot DSC-WX50 Point & Shoot Nikon Coolpix P330 Advance Point and shoot Nikon Coolpix P510 Point & Shoot/Nikon Coolpix P520 Advance Point and shoot Nikon Coolpix L820 Advance Point and shoot Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Point & Shoot

From those i would choose the P520!

Has more zoom, got a considerable larger screen, got GPS, got a wider aperture and better light sensitivity.

P330 is a very good choice in Indian market it seems. At less than 14k price point. Supports RAW too.

It has 5x optical zoom. I am kind of new to digital photography. I want a good point n shoot camera which MUST BE POCKETABLE. How is Sony CyberShot DSC-WX300. Is optical zoom that much important

If zoom is your concern. Go with Panny TZ30

Let me check..as of now I am very much inclined towards the sony wx 300. the pros for me are - 18 megapixel, 20x zoom, steady shot,good result in low light, excellent video, super fast focus, wifi- really like the using app to control the camera and file transfer and upload. some cons - super tiny - no grip, attached flash-my fingers may come across.
