Yeah, I would consider S6200 when I am looking for camera in this budget...

But when narrowing down, I would leave this out.
-Avg. IQ
+ MF and Stereo

Given the spec and price, I would choose SZ1 rather than S6200.

Fujifilm Finepix S2950, S2980 or Samsung WB150F. All are bridge cameras, i.e. between the entry level point and shoot compact cameras and the dSLR's. Have pretty decent specs+zoom (18x optical) and are somewhat within range specified.

imho canon sx150 is better option overall in 10k budget. Second best would be from panasonic lumix range but tough to get below 12k.
Battery option and looks are individual preferances finally its quality of images which counts. You won't go wrong with Canon and panasonic.
Do check sony hx7 availability and price.
Panasonic tz 15 i guess not sure about model.

S2950 - One of the popular Fuji camera in flickr...
- Poor Macro
- Avg/Poor video quality
- No optical zoom in video

S2980 - "ditto" (except optical zoom in video)

WB150F is not bridge and it's not in the budget.

Sandy,
Yeah, there is no model called TZ15. And no TZ series cameras are priced under 10k.
HX7V, highly doubtful.

Cameras with AA batteries have TERRIBLE battery life. But IMO, a camera that has full manual controls and AA battery is worth buying.

He could buy high capacity AA batteries from Uniross and the likes. AA batts are much better, atleast they remain compatible, if the battery on my FZ150 ever gives I'll be dead in the water, no replacement in India.

High mAh batteries give good backup only upto 8-10 recharge cycles. After that it is terrible. I have used upright 2700 mAh batteries from uniross. Same problem.

Bought Canon Ixus 115 HS @ Rs 8240 today.

It was an open box, but the set was without any visible damage or smears, and it was a Canon showroom, plus I get warranty anyway, so I risked it. Shiny blue color. Now to tinker around geting familiar with the controls :D

Thanks everybody for your help and advises.
