Point And Shoot Camera


I want camera with very good picture quality. My budget is 7000 to 8000. I have some preferences like Canon IXUS 265HS and Sony cybershot.


I recommend Canon IXUS 265 HS  . It has good ISO rating and shutter speed. It also gives you battery life of 190 shots which is pretty good. Its 12X Optical zoom works fine for everyday type photography. Its back - illuminated CMOS sensor is an added advantage for obtaining good picture quality.
