There's a large number of models in that price range and most recent models are good in their own way, but no single model is perfect, not even one costing 100K+. You have to narrow down your requirements first.

Will you be doing a lot of shooting in low light? Do you need a wide zoom range? Is small size important? Do you need a powerful built-in flash? Manual settings? You can't have everything in one package. You have to set priorities.

If you can't answer the above questions, at least tell us the kind of shooting you'll be doing.

guys, i m after long time on digit forum.. for ISO, if light is enough then low iso are always best. for low light condition and to increase the flash range increase the ISO.
I think bumb shutter mode will be good to shoot lightening...

I would take photos of people, animals, vehicles in motion and still and some nature pics - lightning, flowers and all. Would be needing them for sketches too.

Will you be doing a lot of shooting in low light?
No.
Do you need a wide zoom range?
Yes.
Is small size important?
No but preferred.
Do you need a powerful built-in flash?
No. Would it be helpful for the above kind of pics?
Manual settings?
Yea.
 
An SLR is not essential for taking photos of the moon. You just need to set the proper exposure values and a good lens, preferably one with a long focal length. Here's a composite of some pictures I took of the moon with four different cameras, NONE of which is an SLR.

Another point is that while most beginners want to take a photo of the moon when it's full, it's actually not the best time. At full moon, the surface is evenly lit and comes out flat without interesting shades of light and dark.

i have a sony DSC H10 camera. can i also take pictures like yours, once i tried but my moon picture only contains a globe of light no spot visible. Please give me some tips.

Also i have some very beautiful natural photography shots

Here are a couple of shots I took at the only air show I've ever been to. It's not an air show like the Paris or Farnborough air shows where they display all kinds of military and civil aircraft. This one was an aerobatics display by the IAF aerobatics team, the last show they did shortly before their leader was killed in a crash.

The Fuji S3500 I used didn't have manual settings and restricted my options with subjects like these. Nice attempt with the smoke shot. Keep it up.

@Chirag: I'll get back to you after I've had time to check out currently available models.

@vaibhav_jain: Yes, you an take good pictures of the moon with a Sony H10. I'll continue with some tips when I have more time, probably tomorrow. It's nearly 4:30 am now!!

Nice to know that this thread is generating more interest in photography.

Just a quick message: My nephew next door died suddenly this afternoon. I'm the senior male member of our colony and I won't be able to come online for the next few days.

If anyone remembers my mentioning going to Mumbai to escort a patient last year, this nephew was the one.

I'll try to be back in the forum after a couple of days.
 
Please tell me how can i post pics here instead of links. my pics are of average size of 2.5MB. can i post the pics with this size.

by link he means the link for forums.like in "imageshack" after uploading images check the right hand panel...there's a "get code for forums" section..other websites will have something similar.this will post a thumbnail of your image but if you want to upload full size images you have to see the image details then get the code.
