Nikon 990 availability
After much research and many online hours I have decided to take the plunge and buy digital camera. I decided the best option was a coolpix 990. Now, much to my surprise, nobody has the camera available!!! Worse yet no time frame for it to be available.Am I looking in the wrong places? Is this the norm to have to order and wait for ever?What a great business to be in (for sellers) and what a great product for the manufacturer to have lines of people waiting to pay $1k at their own time.Anyway, sorry for the frustation in the above lines, but any advise would be appreciated.thanks..

I think that when a new camera like the 990 starts to roll off of Nikon's assembly lines they ration them to the stores. In my case I bought the last camera of the second batch that my local dealer received. Most sources should be able to give you a good estimate of when they will recieve more and my guess is that it wouldn't be more than 10 to 14 days...

State Street direct will give you a time table of purchase date/.

Shipping date. They're a good outfit to deal with.Also on CNet shopper, you can get a table of price/availability. The dealers with "yes" in the "in stock" column won't actually all have the camera, but calling those dealers is a good place to start. Probably at least one of the dealers claiming to have it actually will...

Also note that "The Digital Dog" (a dealer listed on the CNet shopper page with availability table mentioned above) has a very conceptual definition of "in stock." To them "in stock" doesn't mean that they actually have any cameras to put in a box and send to you. It means they are getting a few in periodically and you may have to wait some unknown time. When they promise a delivery date, it's can pass without the camera showing up at your door. I know this from experience as of today...

I have mine on back order from one online store for over 2 months at $829.00, then I called the other who claimed that they have one in stock. I placed the order on the second store for $869.00 but they couldn't deliver saying that the computer made a mistake of stock but they can get one within few days. Two weeks went by, no luck. I called the first store and they said the new delivery date was August 3 !! I ended up buying from local RITZ Camera for $999.00. By the way, there were 4 RITZ in my area but only one has just one...

I researched the web extensively to find a place that had the camera in stock. I also phoned a few of the vendors to confirm whether they had it in stock. I eventually talked to a rep at and she assured me it was in stock. It's with UPS now and I've been tracking my delivery, so I can't say enough about The price on the camera was $954.00. Although, doesn't charge shipping there is a handling fee of around $24.00.I can hardly wait. My camera should arrive tomorrow.Good luck on your purchases!SJ..
