Anyone coming directly from US or Europe to Argentina/Chile/Bolivia?
We had our digital camera stolen in São Paulo and so far I've not found a suitable camera replacement in Brazil (looked in Rio de Janeiro bigger shops and Campinas). I'm pretty sure we can't find it in Bolivia where we're going, too.
It's a very speciefic model we're looking for - the Canon A720IS because of the intervalometer that is programmable for it. Canon A720 IS is widely available in US and Europe and not an expensive or big camera in fact.
It's pretty useless to import it from US to Brazil coz of 100% toll (we'll pay twice the price), probably the same for the rest of South-American countries.
So anyone who's coming from US or Europe can you bring us a small camera? The model is Canon A720 IS. We just need the camera (and a 2-4GB memory card if possible, but not neccesary - memory card we can buy here too), you can bin the rest into trash can (the package, manuals, CDs etc), so the camera-only takes very little room. We'll gladly pay the money for the camera + the work/hassle to take it with you, in advance or on the spot in cash which ever you prefer.
We're currently in the middle of Brazil and ride to Bolivia and then to Argentina this and next month, thus can ride to meet and pick it up in any of those countries.
(or if any of the local South-Americans read this and know where to get this camera - please let us know!!! So far our search here has been hopeless...)
Send a private message or e-mail.
Thanks in Advance, Margus (& Kariina) - Ühel Teljel
