Out of these 2 Canon produces exceptionally good clarity as compared to Nikon. even if the specs of Nikon are high, the compact digital camera from Canon impressed me.

My vote goes for Canon IXUS 230HS. But try to find reviews on canon hx230hs . It's a great camera with manual modes which will suit for all occasions. Rest is for you to decide.

Sujoy, It's not that much... It priced 15k...

Magy, Why comparing megazoom with the compact. Between those two I would go for Canon IXUS 230. If you fancy to learn photography, you could get a camera with which you can learn and of course that will fit your budget.
Canon SX220
Canon SX230
Sony HX9V
All these cameras are priced around 15k. Check these too if you are ok with manual controls.

thanks nac,sujoyp,arrora..
i visited tata chroma for demo..
i would like to go for manual control camera initially becoz the person camra shop advised to start from manual..

L810 i wish... but the clarity is not good like the canon products.. i think so..

i think i wud like to start with
canon sx 150 is
or
sx 220 is
or
sx 230 is
or
anything please
or any good suggestion pls

and

arora why u suggest L810 pls..

SX220 and SX230 are stopped. If you can find it in the store, grab it. SX220 would do good. Suggestion of L810 would be because of its zoom. What's the need of another new thread?

Dear..
I went reliance digital there... the sales man advised about Fujifilm 3300 and 2950..
told about its zoom option..
how is the quality of this one?

i am getting too mucsh confusion while going to know about cam..
as the friend told canon sx220 and sx230 discontinue the market..
proffessionalsss... plzz suggest one...

No, they are using AA size batteries (4nos). They are heavy, Canon is much better, you can get SX220. There are many ebay sellers have stock. If you don't trust ebay sellers, you can try jjmehta.

You are from Chennai right?

Cameraciti (opp. Chola) have stock, Sheetala have stock.

First call them and make sure that they have stock then visit. If these don't have, try KMS digital Camera Palace.

And finally you can try with Canon dealers. Follow this link and get the contacts of the dealers. There are plenty.
Sales Network - Canon India - Business

Don't go in person to get to know whether they have stock or not. Call and confirm that they have stock, then you can visit.

No, Sujoy. In specification everything seems to be good except OIS. But image quality of Canon is far far far better than Fuji. You should check it in digitalversus.

Magi, I am sure you will get it.

Yup i always like the pic quality of canons but donno y the pro photographers always praise fuji hs20 as the best...i really couldnt figure out..

I guess, its because of

* Manual ring-type zoom
* RAW
* They should "loooove to use AA batteries"
