Folks,

We have had a lot of discussion about dSLR cameras right here. However, I just wanted to remind you that the REAL BARGAINS are over at http://www.ebay.com.

I know, the POWERS THAT BE really don't want me to discuss this: BUT over at http://www.ebay.com you can purchase a great dSLR camera such as the Olympus E-300 digital camera for at at least $100 (US) LESS than the E-300'sare selling on the internet.

Take a look and get a bargain! You could have photos just like this: Wow!

The only reason why I decided not to buy my camera on eBay was that I don't feel comfortable spending the amount of the money you do for DSLR and afraid of getting ripped or cheated....Which I've had a couple of experience of on eBay for cheaper stuff....

Folks-

That is pure BS, and of course I mean, Bible Scholar, but, www.ebay .com is as safe as any other place on the internet. You can be sure of that.

But here is the GREAT NEWS, if you want a REAL bargain, then take a good look at www.ebay.com. Especailly, take a good look at thedSLR cameras. The Olympus E-300 dSLR is going, right now, for LESS than $600 (US) which is a ful $100 LESS than the internet.

Somethings to note on ebay:

* new or re-furb?

* some rebates require purchase from authorized resellers.

* package deals are probably the best, but you'll have to ask yourself a couple of questions, including:

- quality of no-name-brand filters provided; why spoil perfectly good glass by putting questionable optics in front of it.

- supplied memory cardprobably only 'standard' speed; something like the E-300 will do ~5MB/s on JPG's, and iirc, should be 9MB/s on RAW.

- would you like the provided bag and tripod? imo something of a personal choice.

- some unknown liquid and cloth for cleaning optics? I'd rather stick with blower, lenspen, and pre-moistened optical wipes.

Factor it all in, how much do you save?

I apologize to all. Certainly, core and VT have made both valid and excellent points. We often see instances where the price point can indeed become the deciding factor. I was just attempting to show an option.
