Default Powershot Sx 20is or Coolpix P100

Good morning ,

I am new to this forum . I am Sai Ranjan from Mangalore,India . I am looking for a new digital camera [my first digicam] . I am confused between Canon Powershot SX 20IS & Nikon Coolpix P100 . Which one should i buy ? When Canon is launching successor of SX1is ? Or Should it wait for it ?

Sai - I would suggest picking a Canon IXUS 210 - feature wise this camera has everything - you won't regret buying one. Follow the link below and compare the features. Good luck

Panasonic doesn't give good service in my area . So it is not in my list .

I heard that Canon will launch Powershot SX30is is it true ? How much it will cost ? Specifications ?

Yes, indeed, Canon will launch the SX-30 within the month, but it will not be a replacement to the Canon SX-1. The Nikon P-100 has uniformly received poor user and professional reviews. I would not recommend it.

I will wait for one month , If Canon doesn't launch SX30IS , I will purchase SX20IS/SX210IS .

Have a nice day
