Is DCS-5300G obsolete?
« on: June 09, 2010, 11:45:35 AM »

I've purchased over a dozen DCS-5300G over the past couple years usually for under $300 at Amazon or other on-line spots.
For the past few weeks, I can't find stock or decent pricing any longer.
Is this camera being replaced by a new one?

any suggestions as to where I can buy this camera still?

Thanks

eBay has them frequently listed for sale, often priced below $300....

Thanks but that's not the point.  The point is that this camera was easily found everywhere for $289.  Now it's not.  Just because it's on D-links website doesn't mean it's not obsolete or out of production.  I ended up buying a new one off of eBay that has firmware from 2004.  It's not even able to upgrade to the current firmware rev because it doesn't have the latest hardware 2.0 rev.

If you can find it for under $300 new and from a reputable seller, please share.
