New camera @ 20k

I want to buy a new camera for my dad, which should be comfortable to handle but should also produce great images.
Size shouldn't be as large as DSLRs.
Budget <20k
Preferred choice of Brand: Sony, Canon, Nikon (no hate aganist others)
Panorama mode required, Depth of field(optional)


Shortlisted camera:
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX350
Canon PowerShot SX700 HS
Nikon Coolpix S9700

I will buy it from local shops or online from India only. So suggest accordingly

For great images in a compact body go for Panasonic Lumix GF3. If bought within 23 January from Flipkart with an HDFC card you get a Rs 2K cash back instantly.

Mirrorless camera..... Sounds interesting !!! But my budget is strictly within 20k, also I don't know anyone with HDFC card & it's out of stock

My dad likes taking photos, tweaking settings but he's not into editing pics after taking the shot, so RAW support isn't needed. Also I personally think he would prefer Sony, Nikon or a Canon camera

Between the two, I would go for SX700.

I'm also thinking of that one, but does it have panorama mode ?

I don't think so. If it has, I don't think it would be as good as Sony. Don't make this as a deal breaker. If you want to have a camera with Panorama, check HX60V.

You got to select the order of preference what you want on a higher note is what should be at the top of the list be it panorama, macro or anything else and ten decide.

My dad's priorities which he mentioned(priority wise listed):
1. Good image quality
2. Panorama mode (he currently uses Galaxy S2 for pano)
3. Small form factor
4. Price under 20k
5. Manual controls

HX60V is satisfies everything except price. Amazon bumped up it's price to 21.4k overnight. Local stores are costlier. Ebay has a good deal @ 19.6k
Sony Cybershot HX60V 20 4 Megapixels Digital Camera Black | eBay

He likes HX60v, just concerned about from where to buy

I have a theory better pay more and get it from a reputed seller. And since these manufacturers have stopped giving online warranty I won't advise going for eBay. Better pay a bit more and get it from fk or Amazon.
