Digital Photography/query


i have to buy a camera and budget is 15 thousand..Which would be the best deal... canon sx500 or sony DSC-H300..? Or should i look for other models..?

Hi Sachin

The Canon SX500 & Sony H300 are both very good models, but you could also look at the Fujifilm S6800.

Out of these 3 models, the Fujifilm offers the maximum amount of features at the best price. It has a CMOS Sensor, Full HD Video, an Electronic Viewfinder and full range of manual controls. The other 2 models use a CCD sensor and record HD Video only.

Considering the differences, i would suggest you to go for Fujifilm S6800, which is the best value for money product in this segment. In case you are more comfortable with the other 2 brands, the Sony would be a better choice if you prefer the convenience of AA batteries & a bigger and proper DSLR feel. The Canon is much smaller than the Sony & uses a Lithium battery.

In case of any further queries, please feel free to get in touch again.
