your best bet is to search ebay or bradsdeals.com for coupons such as the staples 30 off 150, good luck

I am afraid that you missed the big sale period after Thanksgiving. These Canon cameras are selling so well that many stores in my area are out of stock, and I imagine they have little incentive to discount. I notice that even Amazon has been reducing their discount %.

My suggestion is to buy online and pay a little extra for 2-day delivery. That way you get a decent price and you'll still have the camera this week. One online store I'd highly recommend is www.adorama.com, and they have the 2 models you are interested in at 10% off. They are legit.

If you don't mind, are you planning to get both cameras, or just one? I'm curious since these are very different cameras and fit different types of use.

I noticed today that the amazon web site has added this comment to the SD700 page: "Did you know... You may still purchase this product, but a newer version may be available."

I don't know what that means. There are two models, SD800 and SD900 that are more recent (more advanced and expensive), but they have been out for about 2 months and I am sure that the comment is new. Or perhaps the SD700 is being discontinued. Keep that in mind before you buy, although it is still a very nice camera.

i believe the 800is replaced the 700is. that's why it's tough to find one in a store.

i ordered the 700is from amazon last week and got it delivered on saturday. total price came out to about 310, including shipping.

The 700 IS is one of the ones that I'm really interested in. The only thing I don't like is the half-hidden mode wheel and where the power button is.

Dell had the 700 IS for $287 shipped last week. I should have jumped on it.

That's probably true in terms of capability, but I suspect that they will also come out with something in a lower price range around $200-300 since I think the 600 and 630 will get upgraded as well.

The SD800 is a fairly complete package, including 28mm wide angle, image stabilization, face detection, and it has many nice "hidden" features like higher resolution LCD and focus check, etc, that I think many people don't want to pay for.

I agree about the power button (much prefer it on top of the camera, and mounted flush with the surface), but I like the design of the mode wheel. It allows you to change modes with one hand, and the wheel is stiff emough that I don't think you can accidentally nudge it.
