650i's not on the canon site anymore, must have been replaced with the 700i?

theres some brand new 700i's on ebay for about £300, bit of a bargain!

I always rate Canon gear... or Nikon.

I think sony make stereos... canon make cameras... there is a huge difference.

well i went for the canon mx200 and got sent the canon mx200i worth about £80 more so that went well! its really small too, just a touch bigger than my digital camera. have been using it this week to shoot some footage for a corporate dvd and i must say the results have been excellent, im well chuffed. and i think ive worked out a way of mounting it to the top of my sat nav too.

i just have an urge to film everything now, i guess that will wear off soon though!
