Canon SX150IS, is a good Camera
canon SX150IS have image stabilizer, with maximum zoom (48X Digital zoom),
It have 12X optical Zoom and 48X digital zoom..... it create pic around 3.5mb,
other thing is Price is best compare with Nikon Coolpix L120
Canon Price is 8800rs in Chandigarh India, and Nikon Price is 12500 (not sure)
according to me
Canon SX150IX is best camera for Home using, trip & events, 12x optical zoom is enough for normal normal using,
who like more zoom they go for Nikon Nikon Coolpix L120..... :D
