Buydig is a division of beach camera in NJVery reliable.Check reviews at http://www.resellerratings.com/rlist-s1-n2.html..
I actually purchased my last camera through them. Awesome service, fast shipping, and product was in excellent (clearly new) condition!! Would strongly recommend..
Oh, and not to mention, they usually have pretty low prices ..
I've seen the Buydig.com name around for awhile.....I've never bought from them...However ..it was stated that Buydig.com was a part of Beach Camera.....
Beach Camera has been around for a long time....... I was buying from them back in the early 80's........They were my main source for lens filters back then. Good Company.
In those days..... your subscription to MP was always the best source for buying due to the great classified sections in the back........ Ha....Ha.
A lot of companies these days,still use the good ole mail catalogs for advertising and sales promotions,and they then have a sister company that uses the internet....That could very well be the connection between Buydig .... and Beach......
I've bought some big ticket items from them ("L" glass for Canon, etc) without any problems. Return policies are only so-so (there's generally a restocking fee) so make sure you know what you want. Fortunately I've never had to send anything back. Otherwise they are a good company and pricing tends to be very competitive...
I bought my Tamron 90mm macro from them. No problems.Ed..
...with no problems and usually at good prices..
And a great place for checking out online stores is at:http://www.resellerratings.com.
You can look up the store and see what reviews they've been given as well as a rating..
I would buy from Buydig again.LucyE- 510, 14-150 and 14-54 lens!U ZI owner!Olympus C30-20Zhttp://www.pbase.com/lucyFCAS Member #98, Oly Division'Photography is the art of seeing what others do not.'..
I'm 2 fer 2 with them... No hassles, fast delivery, within dollars of the lowest prices usually.. Not the most liberal of return policies but I usually don't plan on a return... They've been a reputed good source for cams for all of the 6 or 7 years I've been reading here..I'd buy from them again or their sister store Beach Camera....

I've used them a few times and they're top-notch. Probably the cheapest reputable retailer..
Their website and selection aren't nearly as good as Adorama or B&H, though...
While BuyDig is an excellent company to do business with, they have an impersonator called "iBuyDig" (note: BuyDig with an "i" in front of it) who has horrible ratings. Something like .08 out of 10.00 at resellersratings.com. Check this link:.
It shouldn't shock anyone that a disreputable dealer would use a name very similar to that of a reputable dealer in order to fool potential customers. Which is pretty much the definition of "disreputable."MartyPanasonic FZ7, FZ20, FZ30, LX2Olympus C4000, C7000.

Has anyone ever heard of or shopped with Buydig.com?.
I brought a Canon S3 for a friend two weeks ago & in the past brought about two other cameras from them, w/o trouble, delivery was fast..

Buydig is good, except they have a rather restrictive policy with regard to returns. I think it's 15%. For lenses that may have a sharpness issue (I've had to return expensive lenses after testing showed them to be poor examples) the 15% restocking fee is prohibitive. For most other things I always check buydig...
