first thought of buying point and shoot with high zoom but I am buying the camera in my dad's money,I cant buy a new one for next 4-5 years, so thought of basic SLR's. As i said I am new to photography don't know anything.
And I need to to know is it really necessary to have a wifi enabled camera.

It's good that you have given us some information. I guess already you are in a confused state whether to pick a compact or csc or dslr. Take time, do some research and get things clear and decide.

In general I won't expect an electronic product to last for 5 years with out giving some trouble. I think DSLR might be more durable than compact.


Allllright !
OP how much zoom do you want exactly?

If 3X-7X is sufficient then Olympus E-PL3, Sony NEX-F3, Nikon 1 J1 Mirrorless cameras will give you better IQ than P&S.
