Cameras are a big ticket item on Amazon. You could easily spend $5 or 10K on just one or two purchases. Put a digital slr camera, and a matching camera lens in your cart, and you’re already there!

If you’re spending that kind of money, you definitely want what you are paying for. You want the camera, or lens, or whatever it is to be correctly described. You want what it is advertised to come with. And you want your full manufacturer’s warranty.

The worst thing is receiving a camera, or any other product for that matter, and then finding out a month later that the manufacturer will not cover the warranty because the seller is not an authorized dealer.  This problem is all too common do to “grey market” products.

Grey market products are basically products sold by sellers who are not authorized to sell them. They may be sourced from liquidation auctions, they might be counterfeit, etc. If you end up with these grey marked goods, most manufacturers have policies in place against honoring the warranty.

It goes without saying that if a deal is too good to be true…you’re going to pay for it down the road. Find the right sellers, before you buy, to ensure that you are getting what you want, with the full warranty that you need.

Here then are the top 5 stores, in my opinion, that sell cameras on Amazon.

This list was compiled with stores that met several qualifications. Excellent feedback was a must. Fair and competitive pricing was also at the top of the list of aspects considered, as well as return policy. Most importantly however was my own experience with the stores/sellers in question. I get a lot of questions, comments, and suggestions regarding different Amazon stores, both good and bad. Actual feedback received is great, but it doesn’t tell the true story of a seller’s performance or reputation.

My readers are very descriptive in their comments and complaints about Amazon sellers. They share with me what they purchased, as well as their personal experience, both positive and negative. So while I don’t have this reader compiled information for every store selling on Amazon, I do have it for the best, and most popular stores.

Price difference, if any, is usually negligible between the top sellers. If you aren’t able to make a choice, I would suggest purchasing from the store closest to you for the fastest shipping time.
