If you are searching for a so called bridged camera or high zoom camera within Rs.15,000/- with specification of lithium battery, above 30x optical zoom, manual control this the best you will get. And in case you are wondering how come it is priced less than the Canon SX510 HS being a 42x optical zoom camera while the sx 510 hs is a 30x zoom, I think the only valid logic will be that it lacks the wi-fi connectivity option which sx 510 hs has, else in almost all comparing categories it excels the sx510 hs.
Its Brilliant...must have

I purchased this camera a week back during offer at Rs.10999. Delivered in 3 days, hats off to flipcart. Camera is brilliant, very light weight, awesome controls, excellent zoom. Manual controls are also very good. Below are the contents of the package.
1) Camera bag (decent)
2) 8 GB SD card
5) Charger & power cord
6) Camera strap
7) USB cable
A camera having these features within this price range is nearly impossible to get in the market.

Lot of people are writing their opinions about this camera which is good to help others to make easy purchase so I thought to write too but before review I'd like to mention here something important.
I went to a digital store near by my home for screen guard. The sales person asked me to show the camera. when he took and checked, he was like Wow very nice camera in digital camera range. He asked me that from where I bought it, I said from Flipkart then he started telling me that Flipkart doesn't provides good product because most of manufacturers are not providing service warranty and I would have to buy it from any shop of electronic mall. I came back to my house without screen guard and opened my box to find the warranty card. There it was written to visit Canon website to register ther product to avail extended 2 years warranty. I registered it and successfully got the two years warranty confirmation over e-mail.
So don't listen to anyone and first check with manufacturer whether you will get service warranty or not if you buy from Flipkart.
Now coming to review, Its been a week using this camera. First of all price range is very low so you cannot expect a high end camera but you won't get a better camera then SX520HS in this price range either.
There are n numbers of good thing about this camera like exceptional zoom, nice and decent color production, image stabilization, a really nice recording feature. over all it has impressed me a lot.
I found negative things are body quality because of plastic built, a little slow focus and pictures are bit noisy when zoom in but ignoring these things I loved it because image quality is crispy and sharp as compare to other camera like Nikon and Sony in this price range. Zoom and focus is very smooth in video recording and you will feel that video has recorded by a high end camera.
Overall camera is nice, decent and worth of money. And yes a big thank you to Flipkart for their delivery service and for affordable price.
Hope my opinion will be helpful.

Great Point and Shoot Camera within 12K Range
by Ajay Manjhi on 2014-12-16
I got this Camera at INR 11249 from Flipkart on 15th Dec 2014.
Only 1 day passed so I am just writing first impression, lot more to explore(will update later).
1. Great Sensor (CMOS) with Wide angle(16 MP), Image processor is good.
2. Zoom is nice, but don't get confused that it will zoom till 84X(which is written on the flash cap)
3. Focus is great but not too fast.
4. Great Image quality at this price bracket
5. Good number of Manual controls(Which I were missing in my Nikon L810)
6. light and travel friendly
7. 1080p(full HD) recording
1. Buttons(specially Left-Right, Up-Down button) which resides right to the screen is not giving great feel as I used to get from my Nikon L810
2. I didn't get HDMI cable with the Camera
3. Carry Case is cheap quality, it might put some scratches on your screen
I'll update you more, after using it. Lot more to write :)

Best Entry Level Camera
by Kuldeep Vishwakarma on 2014-12-07
Hello everyone, i had very good experience with Flipkart, got my product on 3rd day.
I am too much satisfied with this Camera, its Digital and Optical Zoom is Amazing which better than SLR zoom.
We can have also some SLR features in this. Auto Docus Background Defocus, Fish Eye effect.
takes little bit time to Focus as Its Zooming camera not an DSLR and nothing is Cons in this.
Friends if you searching for outdoor shoot specially for Zooming, Go for it.
If you know to use all DSLR features than only go for an DSLR. otherwise this produsct is best in the series.
