Almost perfect

If you are searching for a so called bridged camera or high zoom camera within Rs.15,000/- with specification of lithium battery, above 30x optical zoom, manual control this the best you will get. And in case you are wondering how come it is priced less than the Canon SX510 HS being a 42x optical zoom camera while the sx 510 hs is a 30x zoom, I think the only valid logic will be that it lacks the wi-fi connectivity option which sx 510 hs has, else in almost all comparing categories it excels ...

1) Camera bag (decent)
2) 8 GB SD card
3) Camera
4) Battery
5) Charger & power cord
6) Camera strap
7) USB cable
A camera having these features within this price range is nearly impossible to get in the market.

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)
