Hey everyone,

My parents will be off to India (New Delhi and few other places) in just 2 weeks time so dad has tasked me with finding him a camera to snap pictures and video but now i put that task to you guys :D. With so much of choice, it really becomes difficult to make the final decision. I figured my best bet is the friends here who will give the best advice and credit from all will be mentioned. :)

Budget is upto R8k (stretched if needed for bundle etc) so the best value for money will come to mind. If we can pick up the camera by this Sunday then we will have some time to learn the basic functions. This will be the start of a good learning experience for both of us.

If there are any specials around, please mention them too.

So please, take it away guys.

"drum roll"

Has to be a DSLR? Maybe a bridge camera would be better.

@Nanfeishen , thanks - will do some reading on that model.

@bwana & @Randhir - Am completely open to suggestions. DSLR has evolved alot since it first began from reading just a few articles and reviews so i just jumped on that first. :)

Going to check on this bridge camera as it is the first i have heard of it :eek:
