They are VERY expensive
that they are named discount is a BAD joke. The charge 10–40% more than the regular price. Myself payed 50% more. if asked the guy twice if thats the regular price. some time after i fount out instead of 250$ it would cost 180$…
The don't give money back. Google them they have A VERY BAD reputation.
DO NOT BUY FROM DISCOUNT CAMERA.
Last year when I was in the market for a DSLR, they quoted me a price for a NikonD90 that was about $400 more that Best Buy and Wold Camera. That was when I decided they definitely do not provide a "discount". Needless to say, I didn't purchase my DSLR there.
When I was ready to purchase my Canon S95, I did my research thoroughly and knew what I should expect to pay. I went in to Discount Camera because they offered the same price. A month later, I started having major problems with the camera. Canon told me to go to the store I purchased it from. I went in with a list of things that were going wrong and they said, clearly there was something wrong with the motherboard - it was defective product. THEY SOLD ME A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT. Then, they said they would send it out for repair since it was under warranty and that I would have it back in 2 weeks. 3 weeks later, I called to get an idea of when I could expect to get it back AND THEY HAD NO ETA!!! I made them call Canon and was told that Canon hasnot even started working on it and has no idea whenit will be ready.
I asked to call Canon myself and was told that they couldn't give me their vendor info. So I just have to wait indefinitely for a camera i paid $400 for, just a few months ago, because, you know, they sold me a defective camera.
