looks like a scam site to me. Not even a paypal icon at the bottom. Check resellerratings to see how they rank.

Any website with "something".net is already suspicious enough. Just stay away...

The site doesn't seem to be loading right now... And a quick "whois" shows that the site was created on Jan 20, 2011.

I think I would have to, grudgingly, call this one a scam... ;-)a

The "whois" lists England, which is probably bogus. When I trace the IP, I get San Francisco...

Edit: The whois address and phone number used to register "firstcameras.net" belongs to Warehouse Express, which is a brick and mortar store in England!

Scumbag scammers...

I can't believe there's anyone who would even consider buying from a site like that.
