Have you tried ebay?

I'm seeing prices between $290 and $350

Don't buy off of Ebay, there are too many lemons out there. By it from a reputable shop where you can return it if there is a problem....

I dunno, I've bought lots of stuff on ebay with good experience. If you read the full descriptions and pay attention to detail, and check the seller's feedback, you can be pretty sure of getting what you pay for.

For a high ticket item I would make sure to buy from someone with not only a high feedback percentage score (like 98%+), but at least 100 SELLING feedback responses. Alot of times they'll have alot of feedbacks from stuff they've bought, but I'm looking for feedback on stuff they've SOLD. And, skim through the responses. If they have several neutrals, they might be sketchy - many people on ebay won't leave a negative for fear of getting one in retaliation, so you have to read between the lines on the neutrals. If many of their comments seem a little less than stellar or 'off', I would avoid them.

But if you do your research, you should be fine. I bought a digital camera about 3 years ago that has been a very good deal and I still use it. I've also bought clothes, shoes, a nice watch, a gameboy, electronic toys, etc.

Use a reputable seller and request that they ship with insurance and SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION. It will cost you a couple extra bucks but it is worth it to ensure your package arrives safely.

Not sure if you are still looking but I've purchased two cameras from this beachcamera.com. Got everything in a timely manner and had no problems. Here is the link directly to the SD600, (253.99 +shipping if you need it fast, free ground though) http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=CNPSSD600.

Good luck.
