Digital Cameras on ebay

Be aware before you buy any digital cameras on ebay that is is always worth looking for the same camera on sites in this country. I recently looked at a Fuji camera from a US site that was a refurbished camera not a problem as it carried manufacturers gurantee, but you could actually buy the latest version cheaper from sites listed on Dealtime. Sites in Germany selling Yakumo cameras were more expensive than Amazon especially when you added the postage. Amazon were selling the next model up(4Mp) in the range for the same price as the German site was selling the 3Mp model, Amazon postage price was free. Same applies if you are bidding see what price you can get it from UK sources you may be surprised!

Like all auctions, it is best to go into these things prepared with the facts.What may begin as a bargain can well end up a disaster.A Google or Jeeves search can usually assist here, and make life easier

Auction fever is a very common affliction, especially on sites like ebay. It even affects the "old hands" at auctions.

Austion fever shows itself as an uncontrolled bidding for any item without consideration of its true value such that in the end, the buyer is spending more money on the bid item than they would have if they had bought it new.
