Digital Point and shoot camera?


#1

Since these forums are full of thrifty and savvy consumers, I was hoping I could get some meaningful advice. I’m looking to buy a Digital Camera that is easy to use (point and shoot) and narrowed my choices down to a Canon SD400 or a Panasonic Lumix FX7. Dell had some sales going on…so i’m wondering what everyone thinks of these prices and if I should wait for something else or go with one of these:

Canon SD400 329.24
Panasonic Lumix FX7 286.06

any help would be awesome

Taxes suck

Ahh ha… ok… that would explain it. Those prices are the cheapes you are going to find on these.

Then for $10 more you might want to consider purchasing it this way because it get’s you these offers…

You have to add it to your cart ot see the $339 price. What makes this deal nice is the $70 rebate if you buy a Canon Pixmia printer.

Here’s a link for the Canon PIXMA iP3000 Photo Printer for $85 so you can basically get it for $15 with the $70 rebate.

oh dude, you should so go with the SD400. i have one and the thing just rocks to no end. takes awesome pictures, awesome movies, and it’s absolutely tiny. battery lasts forever and the thing has more features than i will ever use. to me, there is absolutely no question which camera to go with.

SD400 forever!!

i think i bought mine from buy.com. not sure what deals they have going right now, but they usually offer free shipping and no tax.

i also used a coupon from www.edealinfo.com. i think you can usually find a $15 off first purchase for new customers kind of deal there for buy.com. give it a look see, see what they offer.

I love my Canon S200. Nice and small but very good pictures and I’m definately a CF fan. The battery has worked great too. So I would guess that they new versions are much nicer.


#9

just another thought, if you’re still researching . . .

i’ve got a bunch of videos i took with the SD400 posted on my site. click on the www button below. you can get a sense for how the videos look.
