Hello friends!

I am very confused as to weather or not should I change my present Sony P200. No doubt the result of P200 is awsome but there are a few problems that I am facing.
  1. Because of the position of its flash, all my indoor snaps has a very bold shadow behind it.[/*]
  2. Flash is not very powerful.[/*]
  3. Lack of manual controls like aparture control and shutter control.[/*]
  4. Pictures get blurred if taken without flash due to absence of image stabilisation.[/*]
As one of my friend is ready to buy the camera for Rs.10000 ($220), I am just not able to decide weather or not I should go for the deal.

If I should, which camera (compact) would you recommend me in a budget of approx. Rs.12000 ($260). I prefer either Canon or Sony, whichever is better, with atleast 7 MP sensor.

Thank you.

At some point in time, you are going to have to deal with the dust intrusion problem with the Sony P-200. It has been very well chronicled. Therefore, this might be the ideal time to look at an alternative camera to the Sony P-200.

I'm indeed sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the "track record" of the Sony P-200 is quite evident. Some alternatives might be Kodak's Z-885 or the new Sony W-200. both are quite capable cameras. It all depends on your budget.
