Hey all just need some of you guys opinions. At the moment I am thinking of buying the Canon ixus 400 digital camera. I am currently in Australia now and it costs about $AU900 for the camera. I have a friend who works in a digital camera shop in Japan and the best price he can get me is equivalent (after conversion) to approx $AU700. Im just thinking it would be easier to buy it here just in case i have problems with the camera but $au200 is a lot of money that i can save. if I can get him to check that the camera is fine before he sends it to me then hopefully i shouldnt have any dramas. (he will send it as a gift so it should not incur any extra charges/taxes) I am undecided at the moment. What would you guys do? Just after a second opinion. Also the best price in Australia for the camera is $888 from www.dhcpower.com.au. Does anyone know a shop that sells it cheaper? Look foward to your replies.
