Default digetal camera shopping in E. Carribean

Has anyone been shopping for a compact digetal in the Eastern Caribbean lately? St. Thomas, St. Marteen or on the ship prices compared with here in the U.S. I know you can save the tax but you can do that on the internet too. Looking at Nikon, Sony or Cannon.

Recently shopped in St. Thomas. No good deals on cameras or even accessories that I could find. Just FYI. Sometimes you can get lucky, but the days when they were a lot cheaper seem to be history.

i have to agree with Marty, the days of the great, huge deals seem to be a thing of the past. The better deals seem to be on the accessories as opposed to the cameras themselves, know your prices before you go and if you find a deal, thats great

The best prices for small digital camers is back home at Walmart, Sams or Wolfe. We looked on several isalnds and never found anything that could come even close. Also watch for the older camers some of the stores tried to sell us. The latest were all back in the US.
