Re: Is a American problem it seems

Jorginho,

I asked the owner of one of the local photography shops, and he told me that, in order to sell the camera, he has to buy it from the distributor. He can't get anything directly from OEMs. If the camera he bought from the distributor didn't sell, he is stuck with it and looses money. Therefore, he is afraid to put anything on the shelf which may not sell. Even if somebosy comes over to look at the product, there is a huge chance that they will play with the camera, ask questions, leave and buy online.

Some people buy cameras online from a store with liberal return policy, test them for a few days, and return for a refund (usually minus return shipping). Very same people often complain when they buy a new camera and it looks like somebody already opened the box and played with it:-)
