Default Digital Cameras in W. Caribbean

I'll be on the Elation 4/11 sailing. Are there any good places to buy a digital camera in Cozumel, Progresso, or Belize. If so, do any places have websites so I can check it out beforehand. Thanks for any help. Becky

Make sure you check Internet prices for US goods before you go, and know exactly what you are buying (model etc.) You may find the prices about the same.

You also will probably end up with a 'gray market' camera, meaning that the warrenty will not be any good in the US. You could still get it fixed but it would have to be shipped overseas. At least that is my understanding.

You can Google to find out more about gray market goods, etc.

Do your homework before you go.

Chuck

Do your homework before you buy. http://steves-digicams.com/ is the best place to start. There is a buying guide and reviews on almost all the cameras out there. Also at the end of each review is a link to online pricing that is way better than the local circuit city or best buy.

I wouldn't think of buying a camera overseas. Buy your camera online before the cruise and practice before hand.
