Which is the best camera that i can get in the range Rs. 8000-15,000? No particular interests like wildlife photography or something but for normal use on outings, parties, trips... Optical zoom, image stability, good photographs in low light conditions matter...
Canon IXUS 500 HS
Canon SX500 IS
Canon SX170 IS
Sony DSC H200
Ans. You have already selected the best cameras as per your range and requirements, so kudos on that.
Here are the Models that we recommend :
*Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200.
*Canon PowerShot SX500 IS
Both of these cameras use CCD sensor ( Good for low light performance).
Have great optical Zoom.
Great body grip ( so it does not slip out of your hands during outings).
Both are similarly priced(12 to 13 k **).
We would recommend you to buy Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200 over Canon PowerShot SX500 IS. for the following reasons.
* 20.1 Mega Pixel > 16 MP.
* HAD CCD sensor > normal CCD sensor.
* Longer battery life of 360 shots > 195 shots.
* Sony's Graphic User Interface is the best.
** Prices as per Amazon.in.
