    i always prefer Sony and Nikon as i had some bad experience with Canon recently... With ur budget u can easily Sony W100.... if it is for home use and just clicking.,,. go for W50... or Nikon L5...

    presently i like Nikon L5 as it gives a great Digital Zoom of 5X compared to 3X in all other mid range cams...

    Go for the the Canon A640. Its the best you can get for your budget. Its got an amazing 10 MP sensor and 4x zoom along with moving recording at 640*480 at 30 fps. The pictures taken are great. Best of all its available at a street price of 16k. The cheapest amidst the 10 MP lot. You wont regret buying this.

    for noirmal use never go for megapixel... u will never take pics in that MP .. i have a 8MP Nikon but when i take pic i take in either 3 or 5 .. only when i need for graphics purpose... i take in 8MP... 8MP pics takes a lot of disc space and u will never want to resize them to save them in ur HDD... i always prefer Digital Zoom instead of MP

    Digital Zoom sucks. Its better to take your image at full resolution and latter crop the image than use digital zoom and get a pixelated picture. Canon IXUS is a good camera as well but doesnt offer the value for money that A640 does. Check these reviews out :

    http://www.tech2.com/india/topstuff/midrange/the-best-compact-camera-of-2006/3492/2

    The first page is for Fujifilm Finepix F30, the second for Canon PowerShot A710 IS and the third for Canon PowerShot A640.

    If you need superzooms, look here:

    The good thing about is that its got 6x optical zoom and optical image stabilization.

    I meant the PowerShot A710 IS in my last post.

    Hi
    Canon is the number one in camera making now, its accepted world wide. For your budget you can try Canon S3 IS (IS stands for image stabilisation), it may cost you around 20k in grey market. With Indian warrenty may be little bit more.
    Canon and Nikon is the market leaders, followed by Sony.

    10 mega pixel is not at all necessary for a home user (even not for many pros).

    Digital ZOOM is waste, you can do that in your system (using programes like Photoshop)

    Read reviews from http://www.dpreview.com/
    they are reputed reviewers.

    PS: I own a Sony H2, which is equalent to Canon Canon S2 IS. Its also good for home users.

    I prefer Nikon as i use that (p1)... For home use i will say L5 is better as it also gives 5X optical Zoom and good 6MP lens

    H5 is same as H2 only the LCD is bigger and brighter, so do not waste money on that Just go for H2 (5000 rs is the difference).

    I dont know how to post a picture here, please help.

    AA batteries arent any problem as long as they can give a decent no. of shots during their lifetime. Try to use alkaline batteries for maximum battery lifetime. Olymus cameras are not bad but i havent seen anything special from them in recent times. You can check the details in the site below for more:

    Hi
    You can not use regular AA batteries with the digital cameras, you should either use Alkaline batteries are rechargable batteries. Latest Digital Cameras can take upto 400 pictures using recharged batteries.

    Personally I feel the cameras which accept AA batteries are better, if the batteries run out, we can buy Alaline batteries and use it. Alkaline batteries are available everywhere. NB-5L Li-ion battery are not available in petty shops :D (they are costly and only available with the camera dealers) . So AA batteries are my choice.
    __________
    instead you can go to flickr.com and search pioctures, there will be camera option, you can chose pictures taken with Sony H2, there you go.
    If I am fortunate you can see my pictures also. :D :D :D
