Hi Guys, I am looking forward to buy Canon Powershot SX240 HS. However I am bit confused between this one and Sony HX9V. One of my friend told me that Canon DigiCams dont need maintenance. Also I like to take distant objects and would also take normal in house party/occasions photo. Kindly guide me so as to how to go about it. My budget is around Rs. 15000-20000 ($ 300-400).
