I had a nightmare with the free 4GB card I was supposed to get but the trick is to find the right 800 number and deal with someone in the USA.

Now, Wharehouse123 isn't going to take back the camera because you changed your mind. With Amazon this is agift for my wife and if it doesn't work out then she can get a different one. I needed that. It probably won't be simple though.



Of course, 2 days after I ordered they dropped the price again to $599. :angry:

Warehouse123 down to $499 including spare battery & 4GB memory card.
The economy sure is tanking but I tell you, it's hard to pay that price when my CG6 had only cost me $159 a couple years ago..... I mean sure the HD1010 is a much better camera, but 3x the cost??

Unless Sanyo is dropping the price like a rock on these (always possible) I'd be very suspicious of a price that low. There'susually a catch.
