Default Where to buy the camera

You can always go to Best Buy, Circuit City, Compusa, etc. The cost will not be as competitive as the web but they will have stock on hand.

Default Buying camera for pickup in LA

Go to www.dealtime.com, www.pricescan.com. Call or email the vendor and see if you can arrange to have the camera sent to UPS or FEDEX for a counter pickup. Thanks for the email

Arno,
that will work if you will be in LA mon - FRI. If you are going to be there sat or sun buy the weekend newspaper, will be full of sales flyers. Beware of online as you are only going to be there for a day. 9 out of 10 online are low lifes. Feel safe with merchants that steve allows to addvertise at main part of this site. Figure out features important and max price you can spend.
Good Luck,
Gary

Default Camera purchase

Fedex is open on Saturday for pickup. I would only use on line vendors that have an excellent rating which you can find at www.dealtime.com
