Hello everybody!

Just wanted to let you know that I returned about an hour ago from my local Costco store with a P850. They sell the camera + a medium-sized bag + the series 3 dock for $489.99. The P850 does not (yet) show up on their web site. I went there for some other things and when I saw it on display, I couldn't resist...:lol:.

The battery is charging now. I plan to take it with me to a barbecue tomorrow and try it with different settings.

I am just an amateur photographer and this is my second digital camera (my first onewas a CX7530). I learned a lot about digital cameras and photography from people posting on forums like this one. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum FAVA98, and congrats on the P850. Sounds like you got one heck of a deal. Get that battery charged and post some pics, LOL. I would especially like to know how the auto focus works in low light. As for any help you got from this forum, I think i can speak for the group here and say you are welcome.

I went to CostCo last week seeing what cameras they had, and the P850 wasn't there then. I'm just getting back from Best Buy with the P850 and have the battery charging now. I also plan on getting a spare battery and Kodak's Performance Series case for the 850.

I saw this at my local Costco this afternoon. However, with TN tax, it comes to around 530.00. I orderedthe camera onlyat buy.com for 397.00. That is a huge difference! The series 3 dock is around 35-40 on pricegrabber. To get that price at buy.com, you have to apply for their credit card and take 30.00 off. Then, you get 3% off all purchases at buy.com with the card. The best part about the costco deal is their awesome return policy. Still, if you know you want the camera, better deals can be found.

You get an additional 3% off the 409.00 price if you use the buy.com credit card, making the final total around 397.00. All buy.com credit cards purchases at buy.com get an additional 3% discount.
