This is he new cheap one I have a GE power pro 70 bucks on ebay..lol I had to replace a good one that just broke so this is what I have to work with for a wile, bt I like it better than my expensive one, this next time I am going for a rebel Thank again!!
I absolutely love amazon, even if you just pick up a amazon card from walmart, you will save at least half off, I also go for the refurbished because you can get so much better quality for again cheaper..lol but I would suggest the cannon rebel any of them, or pentax I know it is a cheaper brand but it is awesome in quality, if you ever needed any help though I could send you some links to really good cams I just need to know your price range, then you could get them wherever. The thing with ebay tho is you will find hat one right person that is including attachable lenses and more extras that you wouldnt believe how much they cost, as much as the cam!! Bt also craigslist.com online, it is like a pennysaver you just have to look up near you and then usually the provide their phone so you can look at the cam 1st. Bu if you are in a small town like I am , I have to look in the bigger city for any bargains or everyone wants what they paid for the cam. Haha, I love everything to do with shopping for them; I actually will sit and look up the best deals of the week ...all the time that is...and hope I win the lotto..hehe. But again if you need any help I can send you some links to help make buying choices easier I also know what you mean about scams, that is why I only buy from people on amazon and ebay with a high number of good feedback, not just 100% but also many customers that the have sold to, and it usually says it right next to the sellers name on the product page
