I want to how reliable is Buydig.com? I just brough a Minolta A200 from them for 617 dollars, the price seems pretty good. I hope it is not one of those grey market or "too good to be true deal"

Just do a google.com search on 'buydig epinions' ..then read the epinions review (ie select read ALL reviews). You'll definitely see some frustrating experiences with them.

eg.. http://www.epinions.com/webs-Web_Ser...splay_~reviews

don't forget to click 'review date' to change the order of the review dates.

Then do the same search on google.com for 'profeel epinions'

Don't worry. They are not one of the "scam artist" type vendors. Buydig.com (a.k.a., Beach Camera) is a well known vendor. They tend to have some of the lowest prices on cameras (but their prices on accessories like memory cards, etc. is high).

Because of their low prices, you can't expect the same level of customer service that you have from some of the higher priced vendors. They also have a restocking fee on returns (typical ofonline vendors with lower margins).

Your camera should be a U.S. Warranted model. I have yet to hear about anyone getting a grey market model from these guys.

No vendor is perfect, but91% of shoppersthat have reviewed them in the Buyers Guide indicated that they would shop there again:

They also have an above average rating on http://www.reselleratings.com

I been buying stuff from them for years. They have always been quite reliable and they don't sell grey market. I also lost my receipt one time and they sent me a copy.

I just bought a Nikon 8800 from them last month. I was very pleased by my experience with buydig.com and will do business with them again.
