    Wow, despite what may seem like a touch of insanity, those prices are crazy. I'm not getting any of those prices. Perhaps the blow-out is over. (or lenshoarder bought them all!)

    It was a midnight madness sale. Lasted until 8AM EST.

    cool, I was 20 minutes too late. So, how many did you end up with lenshoarder? 22, SO FAR..... I'll bet you awoke with a headache this morning.

    22 cameras? Did you wake up in a strange bed handcuffed to the prime minister of Norway with a revolver in the other hand as well? Well played.

    How do you find such deals (in a timely manner)? A particular website sending you auto updates?

    In this case, yes. Best Buy had sent me an email about midnight sale. As always, I forgot to go back and check it out. Didn't miss much I guess, don't really want to buy anymore stuff.

    Bestbuy cancelled thousands of orders according to CNN this morning. Maybe you will get them, maybe you won't. I wouldn't be counting my chickens though.

    CNN as usual, is way late to the game. That was cancellations for their black friday fiasco. Also, they made up for it by handing out giftcards left and right. I'm kind of hoping they do cancel some since some people got giftcards for the full value of the cancelled item. They ordered something for $160, it got cancelled and BB gave them a GC for $160. That's free money.

    Sadly or happily, depending on your perspective, some of my cameras have shipped. 5 that I got for in store pickup are not available which puts me into no man's land. It's not cancelled, yet it's not pick up able.

    I never buy anything at BestBuy. The knowledge of its staff has always been embarassing. CompUSA was much better, IMO.

    Wow, I didn't think anything could beat the Fuji S2950 camera I got at Best Buy for $20. Today, it got beat. I got a clearance Sony HX5V for $20 at my local Best Buy. It's still $286 on Amazon.
