Great Point and Shoot Camera within 12K Range

I got this Camera at INR 11249 from Flipkart on 15th Dec 2014.
Only 1 day passed so I am just writing first impression, lot more to explore(will update later).

1. Great Sensor (CMOS) with Wide angle(16 MP), Image processor is good.
2. Zoom is nice, but don't get confused that it will zoom till 84X(which is written on the flash cap)
3. Focus is great but not too fast.
4. Great Image quality at this price bracket
5. Good number of Manual controls(Which I were missing in my Nikon L810)

On My Wishlist - Waiting for price to go below 12000

The same product was available around Rs.10,500 in Dec14 on Flipkart. It seems to be getting costlier by the day. Do remember that this is a Bridge Camera and not a DSLR. For a serious photography enthusiast it will make more sense to buy a DSLR like Cannon EOS1100 which is available at a slightly higher price than the current price listed for SX520. For me only unique selling point for this product is that it is the cheapest in its range, for me it would not be sensible to buy at the current...

Pathetic quality of pictures

Have tried everything and every possible option but the quality on zooming in a picture is grainy and not even of the quality of my Nikon S210 (very old point & shoot). Does not improve on any of the settings be it TV/AV/M modes, nor under live mode. Though i am not a pro when it comes to cameras, i still can differentiate on quality as a layman.

My review is NOT WORTH the buy even at this price. Better invest some more and buy an entry level DSLR like 1200D
