    Sony Cybershot is looking really awesome. The best part is that one can actually get a cool cybershot for less than 10K Bucks.

        You know for Sony service is very poor.. i should say. the reason i went to sony service centre to change the battery shutter. They are charging 1500 bucks for just a camera battery cover, which not worthy… and at the same time an another person also got fedup of the approach. They are charging for repair 4500rs just for changing the pin.

        So sony is indirectly telling not to service the used cameras instead you buy a new camera.

        Thats their moto i believe. such s worst ever seen in this world.

          Hey Leo,

          I totally agree with you but that is the case with almost every gadget company these days but you can’t deny that quality of Sony cameras is way better than any other in the same price bracket.

    The craze for anything with Sony label is irrational.In terms of performance Sony is nowhere close to Canon or Nikon.The Carl Ziess lens is only next to Leica which you find on Panasonic Cameras, which is why, Panasonic has out smarted Sony and won many awards in Europe and America.The so called cyber-shot will only produce soft and noisy images.The best cameras are not from sony which is only responsible for churning out new models and a false mega pixel race.

    • Rakesh Narang
      February 4, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

      the best cameras for photography are the dslr ones but they are quite heavy in price. I would suggest you to go with canon ixus pink or brown whatever she may like or sony cybershot w320. both are optimally good and funky digicams.

    March 11, 2011 at 4:47 pm #

    I just saw Fuzifilm jx200 in some ad found it very competitive price wise and it got good looks and HD recording apart from features like high zoom/resolution , don’t know abt it’s picture quality in day/night, has any one used it, please comment.

    please help me to purchase a camera which will take best photos of small creatures like silkwom. My budget is 8000-1200/-

    • Rakesh Narang
      March 27, 2011 at 9:53 am #

      Um… that would be tough, for small object you need a lens of large small aperture and good focal length. You can try sony cybershot but i don’t think you would get a perfect image.

      DSLR cameras are best for high on macro photography, i am not an expert though…!!! try any sony camera or canon ixus and pick whichever you like.

      Sony Cybershot W320 and Canon IXUS both with fall in your range…!!!

      All the best…!!!

      If have not yet bought a camera, I can suggest you two models from CANON. One with NIcd Batteries Model A800 costs less than Rs 5000 and the other is a Lithium battery (like a Mobile batter) costing Rs. 13,500 Model IXUS 230 Hs.
      Both these cameras have a Macro capability of 1cm. You can really very close to your subject and shoot.

    I want to buy a digital camera within range of upto 12000 rupees between nikon and sony. which one is better specially with red eye reduction facility of about 14.0 mp or more. are panasonic cameras good specially DMC-FZ100

    • Rakesh Narang
      May 22, 2011 at 11:01 pm #

      Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is very good camera for your needs, it has a 14MP camera a large zoom. It’s red-eye reduction capability is good too and therefore if you want to do some casual, raw photography, this one would be a nice option. Other than Canon PowerShot SX130 also fits in the price bracket you mentioned, this one is nice digital camera, with 12.1MP lens and 12X zoom.

      For good landscape photography i would recommend you to buy a Nikon DSLR… but that won’t come in the budget you mention so… the best camera in rs. 10000 for landscape photography would be Sony DSC W530B

      May 31, 2011 at 9:33 pm #

      canon is a little better than sony in overall performance, try them out in a display store near you to get a hint of whether it satisfies your requirements… both digital cameras would work good if you want to just capture stills of your journeys etc.

          Both Sony H70 and Nikon S100 are nice camera with all the features of a brilliant point and shoot digital camera. I personally liked the cool design of Nikon S100.

          Canon offers IXUS 220 HS in that price range which is a bit inferior to above two in terms of features.
