Probably reduced to match the John Lewis clearance price. If you're just looking for a really small great quality point and shoot then you can't do much better than this. :thumbsup:

CHDK isn't available for this yet http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/SD1200IS



I doubt that the majority of people who would buy this camera would even know what CHDK is, let alone be bothered to use it.

Bought this a month or so ago to replace my Ixus 60. Takes some stunning photos! Got lucky, someone mispelt the camera model on fleabay and I won it for £62 brand new sealed. Bargain.

How small are these and how does it comape to the panny lumix (got one currently and its a great small camera)

Looks like it's relatively close; it's running but not all functions have yet been identified. At this price if you're interested in running CHDK in the future (and if you want to move a bit beyond point & shoot without paying a lot of money then CHDK is a good way to get access to RAW, advanced metering, etc) then it's probably worth a punt. More recent Canons are getting more problematic to port CHDK to, unfortunately.

What the hell is CHDK?

I would always buy Canon IXUS's - still got my IXUS 60 and it's a great little camera. I can't see this one lasting for long at this price.

CHDK does sound like it has some fun additional features. I like the way that you could put another SD card and the camera is back to being completely standard.

However, I bought an A580 having skip read the list of supported cameras and seen that the A570IS and A590IS were supported. 18 months on and it isn't, and the development work seems to have ground to a halt*, so I would rather wait for a good deal to come up for a camera where the CHDK firmware is already working.

[*] You wouldn't want to use C code that I had written, so I'm not going to try and do it myself

Always the risk with this kind of thing, unfortunately. It's not helped by Canon getting somewhat tricksy with newer cameras and requiring that firmwares be encoded before they will run - basically to prevent this kind of thing! (The reason's fairly obvious...)

It's a fair point!

Price is now up to £119.99
This seems to be happening a lot on HDUK - I suspect either Amazon allot a limited amount of stock at the price, or they have a very reactive pricing algorithm that pushes the price up by set parameters if a given sales volume is achieved.

Yes - whatever you just said! Over a thousand views and only a dozen or so comments - methinks there's a few happy lurkers out there :thumbsup: This camera was very popular here when it was about £120 at Sainsburys a couple of months ago.

darn ! missed it .. was a good find at $99

Good stuff :thumbsup: Also my birthday :roll:

John Lewis have it back in stock at 99p cheaper. Jessops have it at £99 - collect the following day.

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=2]I've booked this camera at Jessops via Quidco and I've received a tracking notification to the value of £3.37. Will this transaction be successful since I'm paying for it in the shop? If so, does anyone know the mechanism?[/SIZE][/FONT]

I Dunno.... bit it always seems to. Bought numerous things in this way from Jessops from clearance batteries (for a couple of quid) to digicams. Quidco has always been paid. Even on stuff I've returned before the Quidco was even validated!

SirHugo :thumbsup:

Also the Jessops deal is far better now - use the code JESSOPS5 to get an extra 5% off -
