If you are planning for a Digicam - go ONLY for Sony. It gives unmatched picture and display clarity. Don't buy anything over 12 megapixels. It is needless for point and shoot. Sony's range goes upto 18MP (~15K)....You'll get good models (W610 I guess) for 7-8K. It has 12MP and some nice features like sweep panorama et all.
What is CSD? Superbad go in croma and ask for Sony hgv 7 or hgv 9 it will be in well in your budget +- 1000 rs you can do 1080 hd recording too has exmor lens brilliant results superb colour production and good range of zoom go on YouTube and see reviews , test shots and also test video samples .
Superbad sorry the model is Sony hx9v and hx7v the later is more cheaper then the formerhttp://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_cybershot_dsc_hx9v_review/.
I owe Sony DSC-H50, purchased somewhere in 2009, it's awesom camera but I feel Canon is better. Don't remember the model I series something. Latest addition for me is Nikon D5000 this is entry level DSLR. I am not much freak but still I vote for Nikon/Canon.
