caution about cheap prices

This is probably a good place to post a caution about websites offering super cheap prices on cameras. I was googling for camera prices and kept finding sites offering prices 50% or 75% below list. On investigation I found they were all located in Brooklyn, NY. In fact, several were on the same block, probably the same building. When I checked them through the Better Business Website I found that most had many complaints. One guy owned something like a dozen different names of camera store websites. The complaints ran towards orders not being fulfilled and no refund made available. Sometimes they shipped broken cameras. On the phone they pressured the customers to purchase excess warranties and other accessories, etc.

The upshot is, if the price looks too good to be true, it probably is. Check them out with the BBB. All you need to provide is a URL.

Good point,Neutrino! BEFORE ordering from ANY Brooklyn, NY camera dealer or any dealer that is offering deals that sound too good to be true, check:

how do you do this? I've been trying for two days and just can't find a way to it. I can find sample photos by Camera but not by camera and lens...

Could one of the Moderators edit the first post so that all links are in order and in one post. That would make it much easier to read and find the ones you like.

digital photo mac - dpmac.com

Since this is a mac site, I guess it is OK for me to list my own site since it is probably the only site that is both a mac and digital photography site. Warning - I am very biased towards Nikon digital SLRs and sometimes critical of Apple, although I have been an Apple Mac user since 1985 (and a Nikon user since 1965).

Digital Photo Mac - http://dpmac.com

Nikon Digital Photographer - http://nikondp.com

Thank you,

George Mann

Best setup for Racing Photos?

I discussed this a few months ago but now I am ready to buy a new camera and lens. I shoot studio photography and also Gokart racing photos. Where could I go to find out one of the best (not necessarily the latest) camera and lens combos for gokart racing, low light sometimes, fast action most of the time, and I would also use in my studio for portraits. I really need advice, so many out there but cant afford the latest greatest!!! Thanks, Rose

Not exactly for lens selection, but helpful none the less.

www.photoprice.ca

It compares prices (including trends) from a number of stores across Canada and the US.

I'm surprised nobody has put KEH.com.

I've always had a fantastic experience with them, and even their "bargain bin" lens for all the old 6x6 camera's are in good condition.

can we remove ken rockwell from the nikon list?
not only does he give biased reviews of products he hasent ever touched( ) his "reviews" are more in the same fasion, hevially biased(and his bias changes with the wind) and for the most part grossly inacurate.

he is also an advocate of pure jpeg shooting ( )

X2

Also, perhaps someone could add snapsort.com. It is quite simplistic, but easily shows differences between models.
