If you're like millions of other Americans this holiday season, chances are you haven't completed your holiday shopping. Maybe you just fell in love with the Nikon D300, Pop Photo's 2007 Camera of the Year, or maybe you like the thrill of last minute holiday shopping. Christmas Eve run to the store, anyone? Don't worry; PopPhoto is here to help. We called 10 of the biggest names in camera sales to see if you still have time to get your order in. Look for our best buys in bold.
As most resellers are located on either the East or West coast, shipping costs were calculated using a Chicago ZIP code to maximize estimated shipping costs deadlines. Read on below to see just how much waiting until the last minute is going to cost you. Not to worry though, you can still manage to have that D300 under the tree if you act quickly.

While we've had positive experiences with all of these resellers, PopPhoto is not offering any official endorsements. Be sure to check with online reputation sites such as ResellerRatings.com and PopPhoto's own Checkrated Retailer Program before making a purchase with an unfamiliar online store, and always be sure to pay with a credit card to protect your purchase against unexpected discrepancies. Most of all, happy holidays! And regardless of whether you shoot with a circa 1980 Polaroid or the new D300, be sure to take lots of pictures!
