Note that the 'best price' is actually a duty free price, so you'll have to be going overseas to be able to get it. Normal price they've listed is $1270, which is still around the best I've seen here.

Best in Singapore was Sin$1120.

vlai, how did the ridata CF card go, did you have any problems with recording video, one of the best features on this camera is the video and i think i would use it a lot, yet i have read about the problems with CF cards being too slow, and that a microdrive is the best solution for this. can you fill the card with video without any problems or does it cut out after a 20 - 30 secs?

My local harvey norman has it advertised for $1500 at the moment. (i'm sure i could haggle them down a bit, that extra warranty would be good!)

Thanks vox for introducing me to [email protected], he was glad to answer any questions i had.

HI Gnome,
The Ridate 512Mb CF card is great, used it straight out of the box, no problems. Wife has been using the video on the kid, no problems at all, she has no complains so far. I mainly use it for pics.

Harvey Norman does match prices and it also depends on the sales staff. Bargaining is the best way to get the best price.

Mate I bought the s602z in Sydney on a trip in April 2003 and got the camera, a $100 bag, Batteries and charger $90, 132mb card $130 and some free development from Homezone 421A George st Sydney. The lot cost me $1400 total cost. I can haggle and it was the best I could get at the time. I can't remember the blokes name, Rafi or something like that. It has been a great camera.
