If don't have, do you want to create one? If so, pls PM me your email (if you do not want to display in the forum) and maybe I'll create one and invite you in.

It's not like my G5. Fast presets, easy change of shutter speed. Sigh.

I thot IXUS 400 is just a simple point & shoot camera, no manual controls, right ? Even if there are
manual controls, still very limited compared to G5.

Well, it has quite a number of manual controls compared to most cameras of it's size.

ii. Shutter speed adjustment (Can't recall how many settings. Max and min. Speed is same to G5 though)
iii. Exposure setting.
iv. and the other usuals.
As for G5, the presets, RAW file, and the front quick shutter adjustments are cool, but the size is not that perfect for long trips.

what is e current market price for ixus 400?
31st March 2004, 01:18 PM
Hey count me in. I just got mine not long ago too.
Pricing i think is about 700+ and I think u could get some freebies frm tat.

The latest quote I have was S$690 from AP (no freebies though). Called Canon up today as the Ixus500 and 430 was on their website. Here's the SRP that you would get from Harvey Norman, Courts... etc.

I asked them why the 430 which is newer is selling cheaper. The reply was that its newer, therefore cheaper.
From my viewpoint as a product designer in consumer electronics, the first batch of products are normally problematic (esp. firmware) and more expensive to make, therefore using more expensive stuff. As time goes by, the company have to make cost reduction programs, therefore cheaper process and materials.
Therefore I would think, get the Ixus 400 or 430. The firmware is about the same, and the CCD sensor is the same as well. Many commented that 5MP on such small sensors do not produce optimal results as yet.
