    can anyone suggest me which camera i should buy?
    anything good around 20 thousand will do.

    heres some hint 'bout what i need
    im not a proffesional so dont need anything comlicated.
    just a camera 4 a college student who wants to click photos
    of friends.
    you know when going out 4 a trip or a photo of
    friends singing and dancing..(key factor :movement)
    another thing : the camera should be good at low light.
    there are lot of cultural programs going in our college
    so i want to capture them dancing and singing.since its in a hall.
    it naturally is dark.so id prefer a camera which is fast and can take
    good pics of objects walking or moving around.

    plez dont suggest a handicam...

    Sony N2. 10 MP and touch screen with 3x optical zoom :) A friend bought it recently and he is very happy with it.

    If you want to click pics in dark, then you need a tripod or click from max 10 ft distance with flash. For the sensor to really capture the image, the shutter has to remain open for a longer time and if your hand moves even a little, the image will be blurred. Secondly, if its a moving image, you can capture them from a distance even with a tripod :( because even then the image will be blurred.

    A tripod is not camera dependant. If you have rock steady hands, you will never need a tripod. So if a situation demands a tripod, you will have to have it, no matter which camers you use!

    What I said is not applicable only to this camera, but all point & click cameras!

    The tripod that I have is folding, folds to 2 ft height. When it is fully open, it goes beyond 6 ft :)) Very handy and compact. Bought it for about 1.5K

    look for any sony cam which fits in ur price range..

    really great..
