I was looking at a camera on that site they are a lot cheaper but you might have to pay import duty and VAT from customs and excise!

I see what your saying, they are in Guernsey. Sorry.

I assume this is the newer model of the A70 which takes fantastic photos and is fairly easy to use.

IMHO you can't go wrong with Canon.

bought one of these on caribbean holiday in march in St. Thomas's worked out as £180 on credit card as great exchange rate. Beautiful pictures and easy to use - view finder turns around so you can keep it out of the sun etc.

Top quality camera , I've had one for some time now ,the results are excellent.I paid a lot more than £200 and have no regrets.

Look at previous threads for other opinions.

If you have a branch near to you they will let you try out the actual camera . They will compete against web prices.

My mums got one, and it takes excellent photos (a lot better than my Canon Ixus II does, due to the lens size and better CCD).

She's taking it to her trip to the Grand Canyon, can't wait to see some of the photo-stitch shots I'm teaching her to do!

I bought one a month ago its a great camera,make sure you buy a larger compact flash card with it and if you can a card reader. See this link to a very informative site click here
