Default Bought Sony DSC N2

Bought myself Sony DSC N2 - ultra sleek , 10.2 Mega pix, 3" touch screen, 3x optical zoom. Got many new features apart from normal ones. You can actually write notes on your pics with the provided stylus. Is capable of printing results upto Movie poster size!

3" touch screen is awsome. You literally dont need to transfer pics to comp for viewing! Sony authorised dealer price was Rs 19,990/-. Bought it from grey market for 12k

Wanted to post some pics of my cam, but dont know how to take pic of the cam from the cam itself!!

Thank You so much for the Contact numbers Mate , I called Solar Digital Cams, he Quoted me 13500 for S3IS and 1400 Rs for 2 GB Card,
My Question is
1. Is the price ok or should I bargain
2. He told me that S3IS do not support SDHC card
3. Will I be facing any problem in recording video clips without High speed card??

Thanks

Sahil, you already have a quote for 8.8K for W55. In this circumstances it looks like a steal. Take it from whoever gave it to you.

I wont be using this camera for any particular kind of pictures i mean macro shots or pictures of moving objects etc. I will be using it for 2-3 years before graduating to a DSLR.
I dont have any fetish for slim cameras which are easy to carry neither do I have any problem with them .
My budget is 15-17 K maximum.

Now please suggest me a Camera according to my needs and budget .

Thanks & Regards
Prashant
friend cannon S3IS and also cannon A570IS are good pls check these two before buying.

Thanx Hellcat. I'm liking the cam for now, although i would have been happier if it came with IS.

TIP for others looking at pocket sized digicams :
Get hold of a digicam with Image Stabilization. Helps a lot, i feel.
