    Maybe like i miss out something which canon would not tell you untill you ask...like the "BUY BACK PROGRAMME"

    Pocket tight, no money to buy so thought of asking only ok.

    No harm asking any CSer will know about it.

    perhaps this TS would like to refer to this thread below? Post #960 at the bottom.

    One thing I have read about Canon is that they won't tell you there's a "buy back program" over the phone. You have to head down to the CSC with a spoilt camera before they would offer you this Privileged Program. It will be 20.5% off Canon's RRP on http://www.canon.com.sg/section/promotion/consumer.jsp You will still get to enjoy the same free gifts as well

    Cheers! Hope this clears your confusion. That buyer had slightly low-balled as 50D body only is $1350 nett from Canon.

    But again such price is only meant for trade-in.

    Well its sort of "trade-in" like you mentioned. You just have to produce any spoilt Canon cameras ($3 off Sungei road?) without any of the accessories and bring it down to CSC and they will most probably introduce you that program. At the price of $1350 and the same free gifts as outside, the only drawback is that you have to wait for stocks and pay by cash or nets. Minor setback for a significant savings if you asked me. To each his own

    Indeed, but I guess the crux of this issue was that Canon wasn't selling at 50D at that price unless it a trade-in is involved.

    Yup a "trade-in" of an old useless spoilt Canon printer or spoilt camera that you are about to throw away? Pretty sweet deal.

    You don't even have to trade in your working G9 450D etc for it.
