G11 Great British Rip-Off!
Aug 19, 2009

Today's G11 announcement by Canon.com quotes "an estimated price of $499.99."
This equates to £302 or thereabouts.
But the UK site quotes the price at £569, which is $942.

Now us Brits are used to being ripped by all and sundry for our gear, but this is just scandalous.

Yes I know that the price will reduce once it's been in the shops a while, but the Canon prices rarely drop by a great deal even after months - and in any case that's beside the point.

I was probably going to buy the G11 (despite the disappointment over it's less than average video spec) but not if it's anywhere near this price.
