The best canon camera deals can sometimes come from where you least expect it.
I started my portrait photography business in 1992 by buying used medium format cameras and related accessories form sellers on ebay. It was a little risky buying equipment that way, but I was strictly about getting the cheapest price back then.
Occasionally, I mixed in buying used equipment from a used camera equipment retailer who had a brick and mortar store about a 30-minutes drive from my home.
After a trade show in New York City, I visited B&H Photo and Video in Manhattan and I was like a kid in a candy store.
I got on the B&H mailing list and received their massive equipment catalogs for many years. Catalog shopping was both simple and fun.
The only think that was inconvenient was that they often required a signature for delivery of many of the photography items I ordered.
Times have certainly changed. It was before on-line shopping exploded.
Now my best deals on Canon cameras and accessories comes from Amazon.
I signed up for Amazon Prime.
But here is my disclaimer.
The prices on Amazon are always very good, but they are not always the absolute, bottom, very lowest price. Pretty close, but not the absolute cheapest every time.
It's my favorite place to buy my camera equipment as well as a lot of other regular house hold products as well for several reasons:
If you are strictly looking for the cheapest price on Canon cameras and accessories, there are sites like Pricegrabber.com that search for prices from various on-line digital camera retailers.
At first, I thought it was crazy to pay for Amazon Prime. I signed up for the free trial period and I got hooked on the free two-day shipping. I never considered buying other items until my son told me he buys his contact lens supplies and razors on Amazon too.
Now I purchased quite a few household items. The added benefit, which I was not interested in, is all of the movies that I can watch now on my home computer or laptop. I don't watch many, but it's pretty cool to have access to so many of them when I have the time.
