I love mine, works great, and I agree, it would be a great gift.

If you Price Match Target to Straples you could also get a free 256MB SD card.

I would grab one if movie length didn't have the stupid limitations.
pRon, do you know anything about the 2" LCD problem on some of Canon's other cameras?

Or, do you know of a camera that will do audio movies with no length limitation, under $250?
Thanks . . .



I suffer from the same sensitivity that you do. A few nuggets of wisdom were shared with me and I'm "trying" to incorporate them into my life. First, remember that nobody can hurt your feelings unless you let them. You can always reject what is being forced on you emotionally.
Second, nothing changes unless you change it. If you don't want the behavior to be repeated then you need to take action. Otherwise the kid has learned that his behavior is the way to get things done, because everyone lets him get away with it.
In the meantime I sympathize because I've been there.

Carm, could you explain exactly how to go about that?

I saw that in the sale paper today. Yes, Carm, give details about the 256 card at Staples, please.

Purchase at Staples with the free 256MB SD card for 199.98

Step outside for a bit, 5/10 minutes. Go back with a copy of Targets ad or a printout from another store(Costco) that offer the camera for a lower price. Staples has a 110% pricematch policy. This has worked for me more than a few times.

Costco has it for less. $174.99 Shame on you pRON. tongue sticking out smiley
[www.costco.com]

Straples will PM the competitor price and give you an additional 10% of the price difference. Go to [www.staples.com] and click on view local circular. The price of 199.98 includes a 256MB SD card. (Youll have to take both items to the register at Straples)

Carm, you git me there, not all Costcos carry it in all the store. Target and Staples do.

I would hate to have last minute shoppers go to a Costco and get disappointed.

Thanks for the info. I misssed the item in Staples ad. Sometimes stores won't match to Costco, around here anyway. But it couldn't hurt to try. Target is a good back-up.

Very true. pRON

WallyMart also has it for almost the same price as Costco, but some people dont shop there(I just use WallyMart for PM's).
My local Staples doesnt have a problem PriceMatching to either store. Just ask the manager.

On the - ahem - 'other forum', I saw the Canon A510 advertised for $128 at 6th Ave. Electronics, a local b&m chain here in NJ. Staples price matched the camera, but since it was out of stock, the manager gave me a A520 for only $128! It is a Christmas gift for my parents. I saved enough money to throw in a nice camera case, battery recharger, 256 MB SD card and USB card reader for less than your price, pRON.
