Hello! As some of you know, I'm looking for a Sony H2 and was told to check a website called www.lowpricedigital.com - they have some good prices for the camera, cheaper than stores like B&H (on the other side, stuff like memory cards is much more expensive).

My question is - can I trust stores like Wisetronics and Broadway Photo? There's also www.digitalsuperdeals.com which has the H2 for $209. Can I be sure they aren't selling refurbished stuff as if it was original? Or could it be that, because there are newer models like the H5, H7 and H9, stores are trying to get rid of the H2?

Thanks in advance for the information!

All the best from Brazil

No.

If you see a price that looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Some of the scam artists around very well known, and they seem to be able to get away with it in some areas (Brooklyn, NY is where most of them are located).

They frequently start new companies using different names, too.

Use http://www.resellerratings.com to research any vendor you consider. Beware of new companies that are not listed, or those that have a small number of customer reviews (since vendors have been caught trying to pad their own ratings with glowing reviews).

I'd use http://www.bhphotovideo.com

Jim, thanks a lot for the website suggestions! I'm reading the stories there and surely I won't buy from these people... B&H will be my choice for sure.

All the best from Brazil
