    I am looking for a Canon XS Body only...

    I looked on craigslist, and on amazon and I don't know where else to look...

    I can get one used on Amazon for $299, but it is from an independent seller and I'm not sure that I trust that with something so "expensive"...

    Any other suggestions of sites that are "trustworthy"?

    photos4less.com autodirected me to voyager360.com and calumet.com auto-directed me to kraftrecipes.com... :/

    Adorama & bhphotovideo - when I searched for canon xs, it comes up with kits... I am trying to get a body only because I don't need the 18-55 kit lens that comes with it :/

    KEH - I could only find film SLRs... :(

    Am I a complete idiot?? :/ lol

    I was only responding to your question of 'where else that's trustworthy'. All that I listed are. I don't shoot Canon and am not up on their product line. But I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from those I listed.

    Photo4Less -

    Digital Cameras, Camcorders, Photography Equipment - CALUMET

    I can't speak for the kits at Adorama or B&H. Give them a call.

    With KEH you just have to keep looking.

    I didn't see any XS (non-i) body's except for ebay. There's a few highly ranked sellers with new (non-refurb) with 1 year canon warranty for $409. Probably can't go wrong, just register it with canon when you get it.

    ALright - I want opinions on whether or not you all think this seller is "safe" on Amazon... I have decided on this camera body, and this is the least expensive I can find it :)

    Don't go buying my camera!!! lol! :)

    anyone? any opinions?? I'm really bad at judging safe and I'm one of those really paranoid people who RARELY buys online lol...

    Just in case anyone misses the question I am asking now it's 2 posts up... and here..

    Do you think it is "safe" to buy this body from this seller on amazon?

    Like the good saying goes "if it looks to good to be true it probably is"
    I'm not sure if I would trust just a random person selling on amazon unless they have tons of good feedback. Not sure but usually the entry level cameras can only be bought with a kit lens usually not body only. GL

    No, I would not trust that Amazon seller. This is probably about as good a deal as you'll find:
