There was a sponsored link on this forum to a place call Pro Photo Nation, should you trust sponsored links from this forum, here is the link, http://www.prophotonat​ion.com …I-PRO-PHOTO-PACKAGES-c43/ (external link)

Seems to good to be true but why would there be a sponsored link from this forum if there are not trustworthy. I may be just too trusting.

You are too trusting. I think the 16GB memory card for $539 gives you some idea what type of place this is.

I figured it was a ripoff of some kind, but then why does this forum sponsor rip-off websites like that or any other? What are the sponsored links and how do they end up here if they are not legit?

Look at the small print under the advert. It's a Google advertisement, which rotates through many vendors, some which are not reputable. POTN has no say in what vendors are allowed to suscribe to Google.

Buy something to support POTN or donate and the advertisements don't appear :)
