I agree. Craigslist is an amazing site for finding decent stuff at a good price. I tend to avoid buying video cameras from ebay, as you never really know if they’re going to work or not. If the owner of the camera will let you come and test the camera before you pay for it, that could be a good sign that he’s on the level however.
