Ill try but last time it said something like "we cant ship there, please use amazon.ca"

as for the dollar, we are around parity but lets just say our prices dont go down as fast as they go up, plus smaller market etc etc...

I got an S95 today at Henrys for $369($80 off) . It'll do what I want in a small point & shoot . S95 was fine before the S100 , it's still fine now ;)

some sellers on amazon.com will ship to Canada, others do not.

Our dollar goes up and down, I think it's currently just below the USD. Buying from the US we get nailed on tax though, so it's sometimes still cheaper to buy locally.

$269 for a S95 is tempting... too bad Henry's only has a 15 day return/exchange (although could always buy from Futureshop/Best Buy and have them price match). If I knew the S100 would be available within a month I might buy one now, but I'm sure they won't raise up the price of the S95 since it's discontinued now.

i've heard the A620 is a keeper, no matter what.

It was a great camera 6 years ago when I got it. But now that I have an SLR, I want more out of a P&S for the times it's not practical to bring an SLR.
From what I've read the S95/S100 are the closest you'll get to an SLR in a camera you can fit in your pocket.
Will miss the flip out screen and ability to use AA batteries.

check out photoprice.ca it will give you the final price with duty/shipping etc. B&H works out to $361 (to Ontario) which is still $40 cheaper than the next guy. I'm sure Adorama will match the price though.

I use this site too, unfortunately it seems to be out of date more often than not and doesn't have many of the Canadian vendors on there.

I assume you live in Canada since you bought at Henrys. Check this out.

Henry's has a 14 day price guarantee so you might get $20.00 plus tax which you could put towards a filter adapter etc.

Been more than 2 weeks but I have to pick up a spare battery for my Sony tomorrow so I'll twist the managers arm a bit and see if he'll give me a deal .

Thanks for the heads up .
