    best tarvel zoom camera of 2012

    low light imaging is also good(but remember to use P mode and keep the ISO in the range of 400-800)
    flash works well i...

    SLR in compact size....

    this cam is really good....
    people like me would never go-in for the hassles involved in handling a SLR when things like this are available.

    be it the HD recording or the pics in different settings....all clicks well with this cam at your disposal.
    the clarity and zoom are too good and work well.flash works well and battery back-up is promising :)
