Re: 2 New gadgets for my birthday - Iphone 4S 16gb and Nkon Coolpix S6100

I was looking to buy a good camera for me with a budget ranging from $200-$600 and last Friday I went out for shopping with my roommate as it was his birthday and mine is coming Monday. so i thought of getting a camera finally for myself.

As I have not much knowledge regarding cameras so my requirements were kind of simple: should be atleast 16 Mega pixels, not too big to carry, black or silver color, lcd screen, chargeable battery, with optical and digital zoom feature, good resolution, face detection , image stabilizer and HD movie option.

First I wanted to get a SLR but since I got the iphone 4S and paid $480 for it, I reduced my budget to $250 and decided to get a digital camera for now. Was not sure whether I would get all the things I need according to my requirements in that budget.I did had a list of cameras that I would look for and those were:
1. Canon - PowerShot ELPH 110 HS 16.1-Megapixel Digital Camera
2. Nikon - Coolpix S8200 Red 16.1-Megapixel Digital Camera
3. Sony - Cyber-shot DSC-HX7V 16.2 Megapixel Compact Camera
4. Nikon – Coolpix S6100 16.0 Megapixel Digital Camera

Out of these the Sony and Nikon S8200 scored a bit over the Nikon S6100 with high digital and optical zoom but I got the Nikon S6100 as I got a pretty nice deal on it. The actual price was $220 and since there was good discount of $100 at that time, I went for it and got it for $120. And also free offer for a 20 page photo book (in which I just have to send them 20 pictures online and they will send me the same in the photo book)

Thanks buddy, i know that phone is just awesome. I have used almost all the new phones from HTC, BB, Android but Iphone no match dude. Specially the touch screen. It's superb. And yes the camera quality is really nice and video quality is even far better than the camera.

So that reminds me something i really wanted to ask some one who owns an iphone back in India. Do you have any navigation application installed in your iphone? And if yes what is that application and does it work good?
