Default RITZ camera sale

i called ritz to see if they'll be having any sales for christmas. so they said they are having a sale after thanksgiving, and to check back next week for what's going onsale. my question is... do you think they will have the d100 on sale? let me know your thoughts. the reason i ask is i'm going to disneyland next weekend and would really like to have my new d100 when i go . and i've finally decide to just get my d100 at a legit place so i don't have to worry about what i'm getting from ebay. thanks!!!

I got my 10D form Ritz... (and it's never in stock), but the D100 is always there, and its price has went down too!

I got my D100 from Ritz. As far as it going on sale, I dunno. I know the price just dropped very recently. My guess it probably won't go on sale, but who knows. Anyways, good luck once you get it. YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!!!

Be sure to get some quality "test" time in with your new camera before taking it on a vacation

It should serve you well though, it's a great camera.

PSPEYER, are you in Canada? I was in Kits Camera in Beaverton, Oregon yesterday and they are getting $1499. For those that don't know, Kits, Ritz, Wolfe, and Camera World are now all the same company.

Someone in these forums mentioned that the Canadian price had gone down to $1399 awhile back. That would be about $1000 American! Does anybody know the duty for a $1000 purchase on return to the $US? Victoria, BC is a half day drive and a two hour ferry ride from Portland.

Hi pspeyer! Watch that ev of +3. The most I ever had to do on mine was +1, and at times that was too much. I find anywhere between +.3 & +.7 usually do the trick for me. Anything more than that and the pics come out over exposed at times. Just my 2 cents. Try the +3, it may work for you. The best thing about digital cameras, your not wasting film!!!
