    Yes, you can get great deals on eBay...you just have to watch for refurbs, open boxes and grey market. Most dealers will tell you if you ask about those things (if not clearly stated). I go for "NIB"...new in box. They will carry the manufacturer's warranty the same as if you bought it from a store. Some sellers even offer several years of warranty with the cameras.

    Sometimes the sellers will post the phone numbers for their discount businesses on their listing page and you can contact them direct. I bought my Olympus from an eBay seller direct...saved about $200 on the price of the camera.

    I agree, NIB is the way to go, though, I will admit that I am watching a couple of coolpix cameras that are factory re-furbs... I almost feel cameras are advancing like computers are advancing... so much cool new tech every year... so they are almost disposable.

    I have a friend that buys a new one every year, and his friends buy his rejects... problem is even his one year olds which are in great condition, are now far beyond my price range, as he is working with really nice cannon, nikon, and minolta reflex cameras (interchangeable lenses and the whole shebang.)

    I use a Nikon Coolpix 4300. I really enjoy using the camera and I get very nice 8x10 prints, both from my printer and from finishers. I can go up to 11x17 but there are not alot of inexpensive options for that size here and my printer won't go that high.

    The only thing that I wish the camera had is an option for slave flash. I haven't really needed it, but I it would come in handy when using lenses and adpaters.

    I also got mine NIB off ebay. Got a bunch of accesories included with the package. I'm really cheap, so it took a month of bidding and losing to finally win an auction at the price I was willing to pay [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I just purchased an Olympus 750-UZ 4 mega pixel and am very satisfied. It has a ten power (35 to 380) zoom, great macro features, wireless remote, and is capable of shooting pro quality pics. I purchased it (new, full factory warranty) on the internet for $415...that is a $134 savings over the retail price. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] They also make a 740-UZ which is about $100 cheaper and still has most of the 750's features.
