Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone in here knew of a place where I could get a Canon TX1 that ships to Canada? Unfortunately Butterflyphoto.com does not (they have a great price at 263$) and Broadwayphoto.com is out of the question as they are a fraud.

Does anyone know of a reliable web site that would ship north of the border at a reasonable price for the TX1 (under 300$)?

I have to hurry now because I am 20 days away from my trip to Europe, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a bunch !!!

I'd try Amazon or one of their affilitates. I bought mine from Amazon some time ago for $385 and am sure they are less by now.

You will love the TX1. Be sure to get some extra batteries. I bought two Lenmars plus a charger that works everywhere and in the car for $37.

I'm sure you know that an 8gb card will shoot 28min of HD video. I have several.

Edit: I just checked Amazon out of curiosity,....$325.

Hey Setter, you helped a lot when it came time for me to choose between the TX1 and an Xacti, so thanks for that. Unfortunately, Amazon does not ship that product to Canada, and they are selling it for $325.00, which is frankly too high considering some of the other prices around the net.

But thanks anyway.

Hey bro' thanks for the suggestion. Coincidently, I did make the move today on eBay and bought a brand new TX1 (but a model from Japan -- all in English of course, with only the component cable missing, which I don't need) for $265.00, which is perfect for me. The seller had a 100% positive rep, so I took the plunge. Still, thanks for the advice.

You guys are going to love those new TX1s, more fun to use than anything I've ever had. I'm taking mine to grandsons Little League game today, determined to get some stills. I enjoy the HD video so much I seldom use the still mode.

Thanks for the nice comment, TaP. Enjoy that little jewel, or as they call it on the DP forum, ....that "Tough Little Turtle.'
