    Hello all...

    I am looking out for a digital camera with the following features:

    1. Decent resolution: Atleast 3.2 Mpixels & above
    2. Decent Zoom: Atleast 4X optical....The rest can be digital
    3. SD/MMC memory compatible.
    4. Karl Zeiss lens..I wonder if I can get a cam with it for the range which I seek.
    5. Li-ion battery....I know I am asking for too much!
    6. Brands: Seriously guys, I am looking for "better known" brands....I am NOT looking for the ubiquitious "Yakashiko" or the "Chokijama" types cameras...Rather will stick to Sony, HP, Canon, Panasonic, Samsung, Kodak, Nikon(wonder if they makes cams fitting in my budget)


    Looking for replies...Thanx a lot in advance...

    HK

    You can`t get a Good camera for Rs 12000 with 4x optical Zoom in India.

    Right now Cost of W5 is abt Rs 10,500

    u can get a good camera for ur budget....but i am doubtful about 4x optical zoom..but that can be overlooked if u have a high-resolution camers.
    i suggest u go for sony p200. it has 7.1 mp res.
    it dosent sopport sd card,but sonys memory stick. it will cost around 12k

    Full name is DSC-W5 (5 MegaPixel & 3x Optical Zoom)[Brand=Sony ]
    W5 is nice & cheap camera but it`s an old model .
    You can see review of DSC-W5 -->

    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Sony/sony_dscw5.asp
    And if you are really looking for a good camera then go for canon.
    see canon India site --> http://www.canon.co.in/productdisplay.asp?cat_id=33

    Thanx a lot Robin....I read about the W5..Looks like a decent buy..Has everything that I asked for...Carl Zeiss, reso, zoom....

    But still, that thingy being outdated, AND Canon presenting better options, I might as well go in for the Canon powershot A430....

    P200 for 12 k????????

    Yes thats true . Even an olympus 7.1MP camera with 3x was costing around the same figure. Dont remember the exact model no.

    YOu can also have a look at cannon's powershot series.
