Default new user- getting ready to bid on e-bay

Hi Guys,

I've been reading here for a few weeks and have learned a lot. Enough to know I don't know anything! Getting ready to bid on a camera on e-bay and trying to decide between an Olympus c4000 and the minolta s414. I will be using it for a little of everything. Pictures of the kids, horseshows, etc and want something that I can point and shoot as well as learn to use manual controls. This will be our primary camera and do not want to replace it for a long time so I'm trying to buy one I can grow into. I would appreciate any opinions about these two choices. Also, has anyone purchased on ebay before?

I have bought from ebay twice:

Once a DVD from a private seller and once a Psion 5mx Palmtop computer from a shop selling via ebay. Both were faultless transactions

eBay is a great place to get stuff, if you know what you excatly what you want.

I thought I could get a great deal on the cam I have now. But the more I though about it, the more it made sense to buy it brand new from a online dealer. This way, it was new (not just new to me), had a warranty that you could use, and everything that was suppose to be in the box, was in the box.

I purchase items on eBay frequently. the most important thing is to read everything on the auction and check the sellers feedback. sometimes the item you buy might be used, refurbished, or even not working. the feedback will give you a general idea of the sellers credability.
