Nilesh-

My first choice would be a Sony H-2 camera, which is no longer in production, but, at least here in the USA can be rather easily located on the used camera market. Your listing do not indicate where you are living, so I cannot be more specific.

My second choice would be the Canon S-3 camera. My third choice would be the kodak Z-712 camera.The Nikon S-10 and the Canon SX-100 each have some deficiencies to my my mind.

For example the SX-100 and the S-10 have no view finders and the user must frame all of the photos using the LCD screen. That becomes difficult in bright sunshine. Additionally, many users felt the joystick/fourway controller was far too sensitive to touch, and often you got a command that was not what you had intended.

I have attached a sample photo from the Sony H-2 for your reference.

hi

I am living in india but going to to take camera from us based friend.

My requirement is not for professoinal use.Many of friends suggested me nikon s10 & sony cyber shot tsi100. Isit good choice within 375 $ or will i get better than these ones. I do'nt want to compramise on optical zoom 10x since it's useful in beaches or long distance photography.

Can you suggest me some of the models?

Is Nikon best among the all brands?

What's saptial abt all brands?

canon is a great camera brand used by a lot of professionals, and nikon is very good, also.

the canon s3-is can be had in the u.s. right now for just under $300 at amazon. it's got 12x optical zoom and image stabilization. you can read about it right here http://www.steves-digicams.com/2006_reviews/s3is.html

Nelish-

$(US) 375 seem like too much money for a Canoson SX-100 or a Nikon S-10. Both are selling for less than $(US) 300.00 here in the USA. Canon. Panasonic, Fuji, Nikon, and Olympus all manufacture good cameras. I have attached a Canon SX-100 photo sample for you.
