hi,
I wanted to purchase a new point and shoot camera in the current festive season. The budget hovers around 13-14k(+/- 1K) .
After a quick surfing, i have shortlisted Nikon coolpix P530 and Canon sx410. I need a decent all round camera for general purposes.
kindly suggest new models if available.

A DSLR shouldn't be considered as just a camera, but as a component of an ecosystem. If you are not willing to invest in this ecosystem, consisting of lenses, flashes, tripods, etc. etc. then a DSLR is not a good choice. Add to this that DSLRs are bulky, heavy, and clumsy, and their photos are rarely impressive out of camera and need a lot of time and energy in post-processing. And they can't be just put into a cupboard and used occasionally because the suffer from dust getting on the sensor, fungus on the lens, etc. It is best to invest in a DSLR once you are sure that photography will be a lifetime commitment for you.

It is worth it if you are a dedicated enthusiast for photography.
It needs care with maintenace & effort.
It is more sturdy than point n shoot ones.
Nikon D5200 may be the best choice for you in 27k budget online with single kit lens.
You can shoot in auto mode till the time you get familiar with its controls.

It's not for me but for my parents. They usually take pics when there is family gathering or outings. So, i guess a simple point and shoot is enough.

i would suggest going for Advance P&S like canon S110 or sony RX100 ...they are best for parents with awesome pic quality and ease of use
I have given S90 to my parents and it takes very nice pics and very simple to use.

Then go for Nikon 530.
No need to think more as it will be used rarely.
Yup, since i am gonna buy locally, i will go for cheaper option between 530 and SX410.

what you are selecting is no where near DSLR ..they are just big P&S cams ....Canon S110 and Sony RX100 can beat them easily in picture quality and ease of use and carry :)

I know that but they are fixed on a product which is similar to DSLR. Atleast look wise.
