Some people who must have CD/DVD direct print capability and Canon brand are
buying Euro/Austrailan/NZ models of Canon's printers and having them shipped
here. Voltage differences are resolved by swapping out a relatively cheap
power supply module (US$20 for the iP3000's module, and you don't have to
open up the printer to replace it). The down side is that the iP3000, with
shipping, costs upwards of $200, while the US (non-disc printing) model can
be bought here for as little as $45.

Good luck,

And, imported "gray market" models probably will not be supported or serviced
under warranty by Canon USA.

Here's the NZ model:

Bahamas?

Can you provide more detail on this?

I've been exploring the question of importing a Euro/Aus/NZ model of a
Canon Pixma printer - not sure which model.

Aside from the price differential (which can take your breadth away)
I have yet to find a store in the UK which I have (1) heard of or
appears substantial, so I can trust them, and (2) is willing to export
to the USA.

I've been thinking about an ip8500. If the UKP was USD .75, then the
price would be the same, ignoring shipping. Unfortunately, the UKP is
about USD 1.90. So you're looking at more than twice the US price,
before shipping. Gawk! [ I'm ignoring the possibility that an export
sale might be ex-VAT, saving about 16%.]

For that price differential, people in Europe should be buying from
the US :)

Understood. Well, heck, 30 years ago, I was doing gray market import
from Hong Kong into the USA of Nikon cameras and lenses. In those
days, we had something called "Fair Trade Laws, " which meant that the
manufacturer, Nikon in this case, could set a price and stores were
not allowed to discount. Fortunately, those days are long gone.

Nice, but what kinds of discounts can you get from NZ stores?

At RRP, the iP3000 is US $306, plus the costs of shipping, etc. At
the very highly regarded newegg.com, this printer costs US $64 plus $7
shipping, for $71. There is a $20 rebate in effect now, so the total
cost is only $51.

Do NZ'ers enjoy similar discounts at the right stores?

INCORRECT sort of. Those days are NOT long gone. Sure Fair Trade Laws
are long gone but the mfg have found a way around it. Here is how it
works. (Just look at OEM ink prices. Mostly the same in most places)
The mfg will provide most of the major retailers advertising money if
they sell the stuff at a certain price. If they choose to discount they
do not get the advertising money. This is how they are able to
REASONABLY control the situation. The mfg writes the ad and places it
for the retailer (setting the price as well) and pays for the ad.
Another way they control the price is instead of having sales they offer
rebates that only 30% of the buyers ask for redemption and many get
screwed out of that as well. That also sinks the price guarantee of
many retailers. The selling price is the same (artificial) and the
buying price is different for some people.

No chance. For many years, NZ had a policy of import control by
licence, and the amount of licence was determined by imports in previous
years, which meant that no newcomers could get licence, only those
importers who had a history with the particular item.

This was a situation tailor-made for ripping off the kiwis, and it was
rife, with sole importers able to charge what they liked. In the
eighties, a change of government freed up licence control in stages, but
the long-term importers set up sole distributorships with overseas
suppliers, and effectively maintained their monopoly status. Hence,
most - but not all - importers still charge plenty for some goods, in
particular photographic goods. Conversely, computers and electronic
items are reasonably priced but still dearer than goods in Australia or
the States.

When I was in Australia last year, I bought a 17-85 USM IS lens for my
300D for $NZ 980. The same lens in NZ has a RRP of $NZ1399, and is
available on discount for $NZ1199. I'm thinking of buying a Canon i9950
(i9900 in the States), and the price in NZ is $1199, Australia about
$850. As far as I can tell, NZ prices are a bit like UK prices - too
bloody high. One reason I suppose is scale economy - with a total
population of only four million, firms in NZ just don't have the
turnover, and so the price is higher.

But, we envy the American prices.

Sounds like you guys need consumer protection laws. Or the politicians
should stay out of the retail business.

So far the only one I can find is a couple of Epsons.

HP has some incredibly stupid technology called "brightstar" or some
bullshit like that; basically you pay about 20X the cost for a single cdr
and your burner has to be anabled to do it, and it's only greyscale
printing directly on the cd.

They don't even have any DVDrs out for it yet either!

Maybe one day all dvdrs and cdrs will be capable with all colors, at
realistic pricing, but I don't see it soon.

The only diference looks to be a tray insert that holds the cd/dvdr blank.

Wonder if I could buy just that tray insert?
