looking at the list of cam prices in japan as posted by another poster, which DC cam gives the best bang for the buck, as compared to prices in singapore? followed by features? i'm currently looking at c700uz for the zoom, but welcome any comments or suggestions on other cameras with lower zoom and higher pixels. does anyone know if they do have cams with instructions in english there, as in here? what other things must i find out, apart from them having no warranty?

the list..and prices in yen behind.

10,000 JPY Japan Yen = 139.034 SGD Singapore Dollars

CANON PowerShot G2 74,000

if you are not exhausted, i'll really appreciate what accessories(to get in japan) to go with the cam as well.

by the way, i'm not going there...but am trying hard to find someone who is.

Dimage 7 so cheap!!!??? about onli 1.2k sgd ... In sg i think selling for about 1.7k !!!!!!!!

prices are so low, but the menu system will be in Jap.

seems like the C700UZ and C2100UZ are the better buys in the list. Get them if you don't need the extra resolution.

i'm thinking abt the c700 too, but am looking at the S602Z...anybody knows if the fuji service centre here is able to convert the firmware from japanese to english? has anyone tried it with other cameras? or does anyone have the number to fuji? the website doesn't seem to say much..except to email support@fujifilm.com.sg, who never replies.

Wah so cheap! Can set up MO for those interested and sell at 10-20% profit... I'm sure there are ppl who dun mind the Jap warranty if can get a retail new item at 20%+ savings even after your profit markup :D.. dunno about export/customs rules though (can say you buy for family/frens :D ) what are 128mb smartmedia prices? If worth it I dun mind if you buy some for me and sell at a profit (must be worth it lah!) :D
