Just a tale of what can happen:
I purchased a supposedly new Panasonic open-box camera from a retailer.

It went through batteries liker crazy. Would not hold a charge. Panasonic in Canada refused to speak with me although I had a full warranty. So I called Panasonic in New Jersey; they asked for the serial number then said it was a used camera which had previously been sold to someone in the US. So I had no warranty. Furthermore it's been 2 years now and the camera is pretty useless. Two years of getting the run-around. And the thing is there's apparently quite lot of this going on. Sending returned and or reconditioned cameras to Canadian retailers and pretending they are new.
