Guys need an advice, i'm looking Canon 590IS as a gift for a friend. The MRP at the malls here in noida is around 9-10K But on ebay and other sites it goes down till around 7K! Can anyone tell me the grey market price for this model? And any suggestions in anything similar in price and features ? manual options is a must

Guys
Any recomendation for a camera repair guy in Bangalore? I got a Powershot A530 from the US for my mom about 3 years ago. The motorised lens cover gets jammed and doesnt open all the way. Happened after sand and dust got into it during an outdoor shoot. Needs to be taken out and cleaned up.

To be honest you are better off with a Panasonic LZ8. Its a far better and cheaper camera. You can get it from ebay with coupons for ~5000 rupees and that includes a 3 year warranty.

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ4 which I found in India is released as Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ11.

The black color is priced at 15000Rs/- at Sumaria, Mumbai where as the silver at 9000Rs.

Why there is such a hugh difference? Any disadvantage of the silver model?

Is it worth today to go for this cam?

Canon 110S fairs ok compared to this Pana model on paper..not sure how practicaly!

Any idea guyz?

If you dont mind getting it off the grey market, try Pallika Bazar.

I had somebody coming back from the US around Christmas time and got this camera for $105 or $110.
So if you have time then try this channel otherwise I think 7K is the best deal.
As last year when I was shopping around for my Canon S5 IS, the difference between the with bill and without bill wasnt more than a couple of thousands.
Now i am not sure, I opted for the bill as it gave me more satisfaction.

Later this year I will be upgrading to either a 450D or a 50D and will buy either from grey market like chandni chowk or order it online(amazon or ebay.com) as the difference is huge.

p.s. I know both the 450D and 50D are not comparable but I am still reading about both and will make my choice by the end of this year

I did read about the LX3 but it's a little out of my budget. I ALWAYS use my SLR when I am doing serious photography. I am looking for something when out partying with friends or for unplanned and instantaneous shots!

The SX110IS or A590IS is more like it. I came across this CHDK firmware. It looks really interesting - taking care of all my manual requirements. Has anyone used it here? Would like to get some feedback.

I don't know much about cameras but even I am looking for a basic camera for 100..I came across the Samsung L210. Can I request the camera experts for any suggestions on how good this is?

Avoid Samsung cameras, go for proven brands like Canon / Nikon / Panasonic.

Reason I was thinking of Samsung was because I bought a Sony DSC T20 in Aug 07, it worked fine for 1 year and then developed a problem where it kept on vibrating. When I looked at the Sony website it said they have the same prob with the T20 but only a few affected serial numbers and were offering free out of warranty repairs. When I reported this to Sony (Exactly the same problem but mine's not in the affected serial no. list) they flatly refused to do anything. So I am well and trully chuffed with Sony. I have now written to them by post and waiting for a reply.

So that's the reason I am planning to buy a basic camera for holidays and other random stuff. So if I take Samsung off the list, any other recommendations on a 100 camera?
That A590IS is a bit big in size..

If you can slightly push your budget, I'd say Canon SX 110 IS. Good features for the price. I have personally used this cam. Though am not very good at photography, I found the pics quality form this cam good.

Either the Canon Powershot SD1100 IS or Nikon S52 should be decent for that price.
Had indicated so in the previous page. Nice size and price.

Default price of canon 10-22 mm

hi
i am planning a trek to gangotri and gaumukh in may end and early june . i was wanting to buy a wide angle lens for my 400d. i wanted to know how good is 10-22 mm canon . what is its price cos i was checking out jjmehta and couldnt find the price of this. i also wanted to know if there are any cheaper alternatives by sigma or tamron .btw the canon site doesnt show a 10-22 mm lens so it means that it is not officially available through canon.
thanks
