This is an email that I sent to Canon NZ.
I have been a canon camera user for a long time -usually one of the compact digital models.
Unlike a lot of people who prefer to use their smart phones to take pictures, I prefer to us a compact digital camera and always a Canon.
However a look at your new range of compact cameras has disturbed me somewhat, as it looks as though any IXUS or POWERSHOT models are quite expensive from these models in the last few years.
It looks as though here in NZ there is nothing cheaper than $169 (on canon Shop online).
So the question I am asking is this- Did Canon HQ in Japan decide to all cheaper cameras from the 2017 product line, rather than Canon Australia/NZ?
If so, is this a sign that there will be no more cheaper compact digital cameras available from Canon worldwide?
I would appreciate clarification please.
Looking forward to your reply.
And their reply as follows:
