With Jayesh I can assure you that , it isnt much of a pain dealing with him and he has that much wanted patience to listen to his customers.

He does exchange faulty stuff without any issues. Sanjay and Rudra should be able to confirm..

Morning Friends,

I am new to this world of photography (I have a very basic Cannon A610) and want to buy a Tripod. Can you please suggest some place in Bangalore (prefereably around Kormangala) where I can get one. Also what range/features/model/brand should I be looking for. (With my very very limited photography knowledge and skills, I just need one that will do the job).

Stay away from such places, unless you want to spend lots of money
I suggest take a Vivitar from one of the camera shops in Thippasandra/indranagar.
They have 3 types, small medium and large. Get the medium one It costs around 1000rs and later when you upgrade to a SLR or a bigger beast, it will be suitable then too.

I have bought Kodak C653, 6.1 MP digital camera from New Delhi at a cost of Rs. 6800/- with 1GB memory card, battery recharger, two rechargeable batteries and one camera pouch. But I do not found AV cable in the sales box. How do you rate my deal?

First have you tried this place? The cost is same as you will get in GK Vale Indiranagar, 800 to 1200 is the cost for Vivitar Tripods that I mentioned.

"Get the medium one It costs around 1000rsand later when you upgrade to a SLR or a bigger beast,it will be suitable then too."

Are you sure about this? or have you used a 1000 RS tripod with a SLR or bigger beast as you call it?

In my experience these tripods works well with point and shoot cameras only.

I once went there (Wizz at Forum Mall) to ask whether they had an extra plate for the Manfrotto Tripod head. They looked at me as if I am from Mars.

What Tanveer means is that you should buy from a place which understands what they are selling. Most shops at Malls are geared towards consumers, they sell boxes, they don't understand what's inside them.

I have been to this particular shop. I found everything overpriced here. So I guess even tripods will be.
As for using with SLR, I am using a DSLR for 2 years and use a heavy Vivitar tripod. It has allowed me to take extremely crisp pics of upto 10 minute long exposure in windy Yosemite, 10 second exposures in San Fransisco.
The best thing about my tripod is the hang hook at bottom. I hang my camera bag from it while taking pictures. This gives extra weight and stability

Exactly. These shops stock very limited stuff. Ideally, buy from photocircle or some place like that in the National market area. you get a lot more variety and you can try at ease. My first tripod was bought at such a shop, but it was geared for my Canon A20. For a SLR, it was not very good. it lasted me almost 4 years of rough use, before the head broke, and then I got my Vivitar.

BTW, this is the model I have, cost me around 1000rs(model VTP 2400). I would recommend the VTP 3600, the 2400 is a little shaky if you are on a peak with high wind speeds(camera bag fixes that problem). The 3600 costs around 1200rs.

Umm whats so special about these images. Its a 1600$+ body, it better take good pictures. Since they were taken by Olympus korea, they would definitely have taken the best of the lot.

Yeah, but we are still talking about 4/3 sensor, same size as in E-500 or E-510. What about the so called small sensor limitation?

what limitation.
I did not find any informed person saying that E500/510/3 can't take amazing pictures.
However I still stand on my point that at true ISO 1600, oly noise is an issue. I base my opinion on E410 samples. ISO 1250 is worse off than Canon ISO 1600.
Most of these are low ISO pictures. Even compact cams with much smaller sensors take incredibly sharp images at ISO 100
