Excellent Camera....

This is an excellent camera.... A must buy for beginners...

I had ordered it on 27th sept and on 1st of oct. It was at my doorstep..

Flipkart never compromise with its promise but the only error occured in my case this time was that I had ordered a "Black" camera and they sent me a "Silver"... Since I was in an urgency I had to accept the delivery......

I had got everything in my box as told with extra accessories like an 8 GB SDHC card alongwith a battery charger and carry case.....

The camera has excellent features of which the HD video is good....

Best Deal.... For every day photography

I had been searching for a cost effective camera and my search ended here!... @ the a price of Rs 4360/-
The camera is really a marvel in its capabilities. It is loaded with various creative functions, as well as the P mode allows you to 've a decent amount of control over the photography. The camera is also ergonomically designed.
It also gives a combined zoom of 16x!.... Even though it lacks IS technology, it is counteracted with the 2 sec self timer option.
Its a wonderful performer for anyone who loves photography!!!

The software CD which comes along is of great utility, in organizing and managing the photos. It also has option to customize the camera!!! I Personalized the start up screen, sounds et all!!!

The battery backup is also great, thanks to the various power saving options and also the viewfinder.

I strongly recommend this camera for, any one who would like to buy an excellent camera at the lowest possible price.

Only drawback that you can say about this camera is, when we use the continuous shot drive mode, its a tad slow it takes few seconds to re-shoot, if you 've to shoot with flash on it furthers the delay.

I would like to thank the flipkart, for giving be the actual reviews of the products, and also for the best price.
The order was also placed within 28 hours!!! The packing was also excellent!!

My first review for the best camera.....

i prefer A1200 ,have one with me,purchased 3 weeks ago( sorry not from here...). did a lot of research before buying this camera. if you want a good low budget camera ( below INR 4500) this is the best option.

pros......
-Stylish and expensive look
-Excellent picture quality
-A lot of features ( smile, wink ,face detection.Miniature effect.etc..& all common features)
-720p HD Recording (no other camera within INR 5000 has this feature)
-Free 4 GB card, two 2100 mAh rechargeable Battery and charger (i got it all for INR 4350/-)
-A lot of customizations ( themes,start up image,sound........

cons
-No image stabilization (has a software supported image stabilization but the image quality reduces to 2 MP)
-Night shots taken without flash and without tripod is too grainy (but with a tripod or a stable support other than your hand and the built in "night mode" feature the night shots are excellent even without flash)
-Half of the camera manual is with the device the rest is in the CD provided with it
-Make a little bit of sound( but can be silenced withe the "discrete mode"
-The rechargeable battery that comes free with it took 14 hrs to recharge(may be thats why its given free)

conclu:Value for money

Worth the Penny..!

Before buying i was really not sure about its performance as it was low priced. But since I got it I thought it was 'worth the money spent'.

Its a descent camera with all the essential features. The 'Easy' mode enables even a beginner to make perfect shots. The View finder saves a lot of power

The only thing that disappointed me was the absence of 'Image Stabilization' but instead they have included a alternate feature called 'Blur Reduction' mode (U'll have to compromise on the quality if shot in BR)

Overall, Its the best for home use.

WOW ... I love it

After a year of its purchasing it is working much fine beyond my expectation and as I have purchased Cannon A400 some 7 years ago that is also working thus I am quite sure this will also work for such a long time :)

Cheers to Flipkart and all the Flipkartians!!!

Really Cool Camera

This one is really good camera and uses 2 AA batteries, which is really cool as the last camera I had used Lithium batteries which were costly and difficult to find.

This is a good camera and would recommend to all who need it for casual use.
This is not good for people looking for quality photo...
