It says you need to buy the printer and the camera on the same receipt. I know the market has been saturated with these printer / rebate offers, but the price on the G12 is what (in my newbie opinion) makes this deal.

You get a $500 camera and some photo paper (for free), and make about $32.
If I hadn't just bought a camera, I'd do this twice.
you will not get $300 for the printer on eBay. Maybe $150 net.

The G12 is a superb camera. My primary camera is a Canon EOS 1D Mk IV and I've always been reluctant to use a point and shoot because of the step down in quality; however, for convenience I finally gave in and the G12 has not disappointed. I especially appreciate the amount of control the camera allows and the fact the settings are easy to access.
I assume the price has dropped on the G12 now that its replacement, the G15, is available.

I own this camera... in a word - AMAZING.
I also have some Prime lenses with a 5D - this often takes comparable pictures (obviously not with extreme zoom, extreme low light, etc.). Really great quality. The controls being so accessible is key. Many point and shoots bury the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. It's right there on this baby.

I disagree, I see a large amount of completed auctions in the $300-$350 range. Many close to $400. I think you might be thinking of the Mark II 9000 vs the 9500.

Better to sell the ink and printhead from printer for ~80-90 each vs $150 for printer - $50 to ship the thing
