    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.

    Good choice of camera - had one a month now and v pleased with it. Dunno about Oz but I got mine at Amazon (.co.uk) for about 375-ish - this is cheaper than Duty Free at UK airports

    Hope that helps...

    This camera does look good and gets good reviews. I have been thinking about getting a new camera and this could be the one.

    One thing that annoys me about my current camera (Epson PC850Z approx 3 years old) is the long delay between pressing the shoot button and the picture actually being taken (not just focus time).

    This doesn't seem to be a regular review criterion.

    Any Ixus 400 users care to comment on any shooting delay they have experienced? Or not?

    Try looking here for shutter lag, <0.1sec if pre-focussed can't be bad!

    Worth reading the whole review if you haven't seen it yet.

    Endokrine - might be worth you posting in appropriate forum in DPreview (www.dpreview.com)

    yeh thanx man, but that's where i initially posted it :)

    Just wanted a second opinion... some of the ppl that post there may be biased...

    I got the canon s230/v3 in the end. I'm liking it at the moment. Great little camera.
