So I'm finally going to pull the trigger and buy a 30D. Has anyone purchased from any of the websites below? I was doing a search and all of them came from shopcartusa.com. They're stuff is priced a lot lower than everyone else. A couple seem legit but I don't want to screw myself to save $$. Thanks in advance! <BR> <BR>expresscameras.com <BR>bestpricecameras.com <BR>1wayphoto.com <BR>usaphotonation.com <BR>expocameras.com

Try Costco or B&amp;H so you don't get burned.

Jesus, Mike, don't get screwed! Buy from a legit website! A good site to check is <a href="http://www.resellerratings.com" target="_blank">www.resellerratings.com</a> <BR> <BR>expresscameras.com rating: <b>0.77</b>/10 (HORRIBLE!) <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Express_Cameras" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Express_Cameras</a> <BR> <BR>bestpricecameras.com rating: <b>0.18</b>/10 (WORSE THAN HORRIBLE!) <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Infiniti_Photo_3" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Infiniti_Photo_3</a> <BR> <BR>1wayphoto.com rating: <b>1.43</b>/10 (HORRIBLE!) <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/1_Way_Photo" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/1_Way_Photo</a> <BR> <BR>usaphotonation.com rating: <b>0.64</b>/10 (YOU SUCK AT FINDING LEGIT SHOPS ONLINE!) <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/USA_Photo_Nation" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/USA_Photo_Nation</a> <BR> <BR>expocameras.com rating: N/A (though there is someone who had a similar "bait and switch" horror story similar to what others have experienced at the rest of the above links.) <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/ExpoCameras" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/ExpoCameras</a> <BR> <BR>Stick to someone who is selling the camera for the regular price. If there is a place that is selling camera equipment for significantly cheaper than what you'll find at Costco or B&amp;H (as noted by Walt) then the company is probably shady as F*ck. <BR> <BR>for example...here's the rating for B&amp;H: <b>9.43</b>/10. <BR>Yes, they are gonna be "more expensive," but you better believe that you're gonna get EXACTLY what you paid for. <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/store/B_H_Photo_Video_Pro_Audio" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/store/B_H_Photo_Video_Pro_Audio</a> <BR> <BR>some links: <BR><a href="http://www.bhphoto.com" target="_blank">www.bhphoto.com</a> <BR><a href="http://www.adorama.com" target="_blank">www.adorama.com</a> <BR><a href="http://www.samys.com" target="_blank">www.samys.com</a> <BR> <BR>Call me at the shop tomorrow (tuesday).

I stopped reading the ratings for the stores you posted when 1wayphoto came back with a 1.43 rating out of 10. Check for yourself. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/rlist-s1-n2.html" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/rlist-s1-n2.html</a> <BR> <BR>Much of my camera equipment has come from Costco, for my camera body, BHphotoandvideo, Amazon, Andorama, and other authorized retailers of different types that carry excellent ratings. <BR> <BR>Even though Costco no longer offers a lifetime warranty, they are a great place to purchase product. Do the math, since it includes some media cards also. Decide if the kit lens is something you would use. <BR> <BR>Edit: Guess I type slow...Looks like Scott covered it already. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Peter_C on July 23, 2007)

my friend fell for the bestpricecamera.com scam and it was a hassle to cancel the order once i told her it was fake. <BR> <BR>and if i were you i'd hold off on the 30d until the rumored 40d is released in the next couple months, then the price off the 30d price will drop.

Myke, <BR> <BR>I just bought a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT from Buydig.com and they were a great company to deal with.
