I would like to buy a new camera. Maximum I hope to use is around 15-16k INR ($240 - $300 USD). Can anyone suggest me some good options in that range. :)

It will be a great help. I wish to give it as a present. He is not a beginner, I mean, he is almost good at photography. So please keep that in mind too. :)

For your price range I would suggest something like the Canon S90, S95 or S100. It is an affordable compact camera with all the features and controls you would expect in a much larger SLR. You can read a review here. I have had one myself for a few years now and love it. I also have a much larger Nikon SLR but 95% of the time I use the Canon. I would recommend it without reservation.

I'm sure other people will have a very different opinion - I look forward to reading them with interest!
