      I didn't want anything to happen to this camera, personally I blame the swans.
      That's a bit harsh, it could have been cats or hawks
      Liam's right ... buying new gadgets will always makes you feel better

      Don't have any of the water absorbing crystals, it's still not dried out.

      I'd dissasemble the whole thing and rinse it in demineralised water (available from the supermarket) then hit it with an air duster and leave it overnight (and pray) it may jusy work. I recovered a laptop this way after the coffee I spilt into it washed biscuit crumbs all over the motherboard.

      I'd ring your insurance company. It may save you from further wreckage unneccesarily...

      Was done not long after it happened, they got back to me about 2 hours ago, now gotta take it to a service centre... oh well hopefully it will either be fixed, replaced or money paid to me and used for a new one (perhaps upgrade ).
      Still such a hassle and disappointing, was lucky as that there was only about 3 photos that I took before the dunkening.

      So, any guesstimates on how much the 500D (body only) will retail for?

      http://www.canon.com.au/produc....aspx
      450D is currently $1099 and the 40D is currently $1299.
      It would be nice if the 500D slotted in at the 450D pricing. Is that wishful thinking?

      Could slot in at 450D pricing. Depends on Canon and if they've upped the 450D pricing since launch last year. If not, 99% chance they'll bump the price up and blame the AUD weakness/Yen strength. I think Canon may have had their price bumps already.

      I'm pretty sure cannon increased their prices in Feb/March. Nikon did the same thing in Feb.

    8. 04-08-2009 07:23 PM #183
      I found the the 450D body for $889.00 and 50D body for $1,699.00
      inc GST.
      Try the Digital Camera Warehouse (www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au)
      I picked up my Canon EOS 450D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm IS + 55-250mm IS Lens for $1250 inc GST

      Cool. I'm hoping Krudd can buy me a new camera. I would have gone for the 450D, but the 500D makes more sense now...

      Going up on the 9th of March?? The 500D was only announced a couple of weeks ago. 2-3 weeks after Canon jacked up their prices.
      RRP on the 500D is the same as the 450D in the US, so pricing should be similar to 450D RRP now, with street price to drop a bit after the first 2-3 months.

      At those prices, Canon are dreaming, but no-one pays retail for cameras.
      Keep an eye on http://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au Liam. The 450D is going for less than $900 at DCW. I'd expect the 500D will come in around $1000-$1100.

      My filum camera is a Nikon. They just sucked balls when I went digi.

      Wonder what the price will be compared to a D90? I guess this is the D40x/D60 replacement...

      A D5000 ... ~zomg!~ that must be totally like 10 times better than a 500D.
      Edit: Oh, I have often wondered when dSLR cameras would have foldy-back LCD screens, a la the Canon G/Powershot series, and make out it that it is all new again.
      Dunno why they never did it from the start to be honest.

      I'm thinking of one of these lenses: http://www.digitalcamerawareho...2.htm

      Any of the camera guys got any other suggestions for a similar price and range? I already have a 200m, so am after something longer.

      Edit: Fixed.

      Where did I get it from? DigitalRev. Where did I sell it? On fleabay.
      I sent you an IM back in Feb saying I was selling it.
