I am trying to decide between several models.

How can I get good hands on tests of each? CircuitCity rarely has them with power, even rarer with memory.

Are other stores better? Is there some other way to get hands on test?

One of the biggest advantage of alocal "bricks and mortar" camera retailer is that they usually have demo cameras for you to test. My local store willlet me take any of their demo models outside to test with my own CF card... They know me, if they don't know you, you may have to leave a credit card imprint with them in case you disappear.

The local camera store employees are also (usually) much more knowledgeable about the cameras they sell than anyone at Best Buy or Circuit City.

I think the extra cost when dealing with a local photo store is well worth it..

Thanks for your reply. Can you recommend some stores?

I'm not sure there are any good ones right in my area (New Haven, CT). I may have to go into New York City. Can anyone recommend the best store (for trying out cameras) there?
