5 great gadgets to buy this Diwali!

With Diwali around the corner, this is a great time to shop for gadgets what with discounts available at most stores. Gadgets make great gifts too; if you choose well they will be used often and for a long time by the lucky recipient. So here are five great gadgets for this festive season.

Canon Powershot A580

Approximate price: Rs 8,000

Perhaps no other company knows how to make cameras as well as Canon and their A series provides some of the best value for money in the entire digital camera segment. The A580 is an excellent new model in this series.

The 8 mega pixel A580 with 4X optical zoom is a good camera for beginners and will give you great photos on the automatic settings especially with the face detection and motion detection technology. However the real strength of the camera is the wide array of adjustable settings in the manual mode which give the user much more control than the typical digital camera.

You will be able to adjust shutter speed, aperture and ISO which means that the A580 is a great camera to learn the basics of photography.
