Re: From your online shopping experiences..

James, it still seems the good news is nothing is damaged. Go with that. problems, if they exist, often are immediate with electronics.

However, one should never buy a camera just before a trip. There is a learning curve to mastering use to get the most out of it. Long ago I purchased the first Nikon D200 from B&H photo in NYC to master it for a trip to alaska to shoot eagles in the winter. the package was perfect but the camera went back to Nikon 5x for various repairs before they replaced it. The good news was that It worked for the trip.

Anyway, a damaged box is not the same as damaged goods. There is a reason why things are packed as they are, to absorb the shock on the product.
