Last year the best buys on cameras were just before Christmas.
There were some large discounts available.
There is not much drop in prices when a new camera comes out.
Sometimes you will see a rebate from the camera manufacturer, a few months before a new camera comes out. Apparently this is to deplete the present stock before the new camera hits the stores.
The big department stores usually stop buying before a new camera comes out and are sold out by the time the new camera is available.
You can sometimes pick up a "display" model at individual stores at a discount.
Is there a particular time of year when you can get deals on cameras?I'm seeing that a lot of new digital camera models are coming out in June & July, is it worth it to wait until then to buy a new camera? Will prices on the older models drop?
