Default can i buy from getitdigital or amazon or ebay?


I want to buy Canon 550 kit deal. I have found some good sites for it.

1) http://www.getitdigital.com/category...ategory=270042
2) Amazon also provides many kits
3) EBAY like

I am unable to understand whether i purchase from these kit offers or buy separate things from some trustworthy store which definitely cost more.

Can any experienced person resolve my this problem?

Amazon would be a good online site to get the camera.

Ebay, I am not to keen on if you do not know the merchant. But there are good merchants that do sell on ebay like adorama.

Never heard of getitdigital

Some stores sell 'gray market' cameras, both on ebay and other places, for lower prices - see some of the threads by searching 'gray market'. Other places sell cameras packaged in kits with a lot of accessories which are of poor quality, and if you compare them to the same kits from reputable dealers, they will often be cheaper. That is where their profit comes from.

Avoid fleabay and off the wall online retailers.
Amazon is a good place to look that usually ends up being another retailer.
Want to see a real competitve price that wont get you something other than what you want? Look at B&H or Adorama. If its priced less than these guys have listed there is either a catch like oh a battery is extra or gray market gear with no warranty in the US, even worse.....you pay and never hear from them again. Never trust a site that doesnt have a physical address in the contact info and if they do and you are not aware then google map it! It may be an abandoned building in Brooklyn!
