I'm looking at buying another digicam but I'll wait a month or more for a good reason like a lower price. Are there any seasoned buyers reading this who have noticed if prices on recently released models (e.g. a Nikon S4) are usually lower before Christmas, due to seasonal discounts, or if they are higher due to higher demand?

Don't expect any pre or post season discounts on recently introduced models. Typically you will only find discounts on older models, and these discounts are not dependent on season. So yes, you may find some holiday discounts, but they will only be on older models that have been replaced by a newer model. On the other hand you are likely to be able to find these sorts of discounts even in July!! Another thing to remember is that as new models come out, they usually have more and better features at a price equal to or less than when the older models came out.
