Nurture Baby –

Purchasing equipment during the holidays and beyond.  Be wary of Grey Market equipment which is defined as the trade pf a commodity through distribution channels.  In regards to camera equipment the camera would not be covered under a USA Warranty and would not be serviced within the USA.  The little savings may ultimately hurt you in the end if the equipment fails.  A tip to follow…if the price seems too good to be true it probably is.  Stick with known sellers such as Adorama, B&H or Amazon.
