My budget is less than 25k Indian Rupees ($500 USD)
I have two options :
Nikon CoolPix P500 (35x zoom)
Sony CyberShot DSC-HX9V (30x zoom)
After checking photos I prefer Sony's camera. But as per new Nikon is going to launch a successor "CoolPix P510" with 42x zoom.
Should I wait and buy that model or go with Sony CyberShot DSC-HX9V ?
Please REPLY!! I will be highly thankful.
Thanks! (In Advance)
I cannot respond to your question asking which is the better camera. But, what I can say is this. If you get stuck in the frame of mind to wait for the better camera, you will be waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Next year there will be a bridge camera with even a longer zoom. So, don't wait. Jump in. Buy the camera that 'feels' best to you. What it looks like on paper, that is with the best stats and numbers means nothing really. What is most important is how you feel about the camera overall. If you have a big zoom but hate the camera for various reasons like it is heavy, large, the menu is hard to handle, etc. then you won't be happy. So, go with the camera you like. Whatever that camera is. Working with a camera you like means you are not fighting with the camera. But, are free to pursue your hobby happily. Best of luck. BobWed
