    Compare what a 640x480 image taken by a good camera looks like vs what one taken by a $38 camera looks like.

    *DISCLAIMER: i just photoshopped that comparison, but it might be true. :o

    Oooh, red meat. :yum:

    Anyway, what camera is that? I'm looking to get a nice medium-priced digicam, probably an A40. However, the costs keep piling up... I found it at US $ 250 on the net, but I'm in Canada, and it should be, according to the conversion rate, about CAN $ 390, but add on taxes and duties and all this crap and it comes out to CAN $ 500. Slap on another CAN $ 150 for NimH rechargeables and a decent sized memory card, and I'm already at CAN $ 650 - 700 bucks, which is almost twice the original cost.

    And I'll probably dish out the money since I want the fucking thing so badly.

    Ugh. Weak, Canadian dollar, weak :(

    cosmin? this is M3man from ecf.

    get the A40 :cool:. i ordered mine from amazon.com. They had a CF card discount, so it turned out to be $324 w/ free shipping (they have that on items over $100) and a 128 mb CF card (no tax btw).

    i later acquired 8 sony nimh rechargeables and a charger.

    Ugh.... just tried it and the fuckers can't ship to Canada :mad:

    And amazon.ca doesn't have the item yet. Pigfuckers.

    Anyway, kubla khan, where do you live? Canada or US? For some reason I thought Canada. And when did you order it?

    i ordered it on the 23rd of May this year, arrived two weeks later. Amazon.com is backordered now, i guess they're flying off the shelves :o.


    I'm in the US btw. Just order from amazon.ca and they'll put you in line; or get it from another site (amazon is pretty dependable though, and if they make you wait too much, they'll usually throw in free shit).
     
  12. well i bought a shitty 640x480 for 15$$$ canadian and i am happy but it's ONLY for very simple pictures.. like you can't move for like 5 seconds to take a semidecent non blurry picture,,,
