Depends on lot of things like resolution and make. Also do you want one with warranty? If yes, then it will cost much more.

If you buy from grey market its cheaper - prices vary from Rs10,000/- upwards depending on resolution and make.
2005: Jodhpur, Pragpur, Garli, Chamba Patan, Kaleshwar Mahadev, Dada Sibba, Pong Lake, Kangra, Dharamsala, McLeod Ganj (Saw HH Dalai Lama preaching!), Kasauli, Kathmandu & Corbett
2004: Kuchesar, Brijghat, Rishikesh, Glasshouse on Ganges, Mukteshwar, Naukuchiatal, Lucknow, Ajmer, Pushkar, Jaipur, Jaisalmer & Jodhpur

Last month I bought a Canon A95 5mp camera in Delhi for 13k.(rupees).
Look around and chose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be...


Last ride : Bhutan, Arunachal, Sikkim.. (Where do I ride next?)

How is the Canon A95 5mp. Plan to buy a new digicam and am looking for suggestions. Need pictures of good printable/publishing quality. Looking at a budget of about 20K?

Canon A95 is a pretty decent option. For pics check out my journal. If you have a budget of 20K you can also look at Canon S2 1S.(5MP 12X optical zoom).

Ignore most of the photos in my album - they're all with my old 1mp camera (a Canon A-something, no idea what), which got stolen on my last trip. Hence the emergency purchase of the A95, it was the best and cheapest I could find on short notice, with the same basic controls as my old camera.

I think it's pretty good though, the shots with the new camera turned out great and you can really tell the difference with the added mp!

after seeing the ridiculously high prices in india for much technology, including digital cameras, i began to buy all of my stuff abroad. recently bought a beautiful japanese made camera from a reputable company in bangkok for under 6000Rs. fantastic quality. check out IT city in Panthip Plaza (bangkok).
India is the great Yin-Yang. Amazing lightness, equally amazing darkness. Wrapped up to make one complete whole.

panthip has the potential to be cheap if you know the prices. otherwise, they tend to screw foreigners. that is why i suggested IT City, the big store on the top floor. It is the Thai equivalent of Circuit City or Best Buy (cheap American electronic stores).

Many items, including all of my Mac-related gear, is much cheaper back in the States. Thai custom taxes are high. And all of the Mac gear goes from China to the States, and then to Thailand. I picked up one of the many wireless signals in Panthip, and always checked "home" prices before I bought from them, just as a reference. I always paid more than American prices.

The one true bargain is the unbranded Chinese stuff. When you ask what brand it is, they say "China." I love that!

I saw an amazing webcam that had comparable quality to be pricey Apple iSight for just 1300 Baht. ($40) Perfect picture.

Anyway, stick with IT City when you can, as all of their goods are legit, and warrantied, and no chance of paying a "skin tax." (when whites get charged more).
