Are cameras cheap in Thailand, if so approx how much cheaper and where's the best place to buy?. We're only looking at the US$250 mark so not highend prices. Trying to decide whether to buy one on special here or wait.

Panthip Plaza in Bangkok is a good spot for digital camera, but also any department store -- eg Emporium on Sukhumvit road - will have a good range of sub 10,000B cameras.
Not sure if it is much cheaper though -- maybe a touch cheaper. I'd lean towards picking one up in Oz as then if there's a problem with the camera you'll be covered by warranty etc.
We just bought a Canon PowerShot 540 6MP, 4X zoom, 2.5" LCD 16MB SD card online for AUD$320. We're not actually camera people but Chris, my husband wants one for his artwork.
