Shopping safely online
I think that I have settled on the canon S5 IS and am now looking for a resonable price. my question is this, does anyone know of a good place to purchase one for a good price online? The best price I have seen is 315.00 but it's from a site that I have never heard of which makes me a little leary. Any suggestions would be appriciated..

B&H and Adorama and of course Amazon are key to check. Always review, before any purchase. Watch out for Grey market vs USA, ask! it has to do with warranty..

He's absolutely right.. I'd go B&H or Adorama and not consider much else..

There are some other honest dealers like Beach Camera and Sigma for Less, but you can never be quite sure..



I like Amazon but don't use them because they often don't stock the items and rely on other stores..

If an online price is much lower than these guys, you're probably gong to be ripped off..

Don't use Shop Cart USA either. They are owned by the same crooks. Great ratings for ripoff companies. They show some legit companies at higher prices to make it seem like they are legit..

Like the other guy said, use for your ratings...

You should be very leary when looking for the lowest prices online. There are a lot of bait and switch sites that will lure you in with a cheap price, and then try to sell you the accessories that normally come with the camera, upsell you into the US version instead of the one in Japanese, etc..

Follow the previous posters advice and you'll save a lot of grief and get a get a good deal..

Also, in addition to, you can do a Google search for a particular company. There are usually threads in different forums with experiences posted..

Anyone ever heard of Broadway Photo?

They're a ripoff:.


To bhphoto, adorama, and amazon, listed above, you can also try.


These two have more limited photo equipment selections, but they have some..

Http:// is a retailer I'd purchase from again. Liked that I could order via phone instead of the internet..

And the last time I checked (which was some months ago - spoke to a salesperson), they'll price match against B&H Photo etc..

Good Day,Roonal.
