    I have an unconfirmed PayPal account with a mailing address in Miami, and I can use it for online payments including eBay.

    I have a confirmed account I keep in the US. I seem to remember it being a real hassle when I was checking it out with Paypal...but those brain cells died yesterday, so I don't remember the specifics.......sorta how my world goes these days....too many fried things clogging everything up.
    ....on the other hand....
    I happen to have just finished putting together a Canon 5D MkII package (lenses, filters, tripod, bag....the whole shebang) and was working on putting it up on a facebook page and noticed your post. If you are interested in a really complete system with a really good camera for photo and video PM me. I am in the Dominican Republic, so, if you are here also, we can bypass paypal.

    even if you had paypal and shipping address buying this camera would be a difficult job in terms of costs of bringing it here. there are no charges on items below 200 dollars but electronics at over 1000 dollars is a different piece of cake. good luck.

    I think this camera can be purchased on Amazon and and as such it can be delivered to a forwarder in Miami but as has been said the import duty will be severe. Better to get it delivered to a friend to bring down or collect it in Miami as it will be cheaper than the duty that the customs will demand here.

    torremannetje,
    I'm sorry I did not check back on this thread, I had your 5D (at $1400.) and am in the Dominican Republic.
    Wish you would have PM'd me. I could have gotten it to you...
    These things don't last long once they are here. Have you tried the other websites of things for sale in Cabarete, Sousa, and Bayahibe on Facebook? One of them usually has a camera for sale...or you could request one there....

    no, mira eso:

    Canon EOS 5D Camera Canon Battery Grip BG E4 EF 35 80mm F 4 5 6 USM Lens 013803056853 | eBay

    is only $850 and i take all the customs prices with it, long story short, i have to buy this camera for a friend of mine who in return will shoot 2 music videos with behind the scenes and 2 photoshoots. that alone would cost me with him and any other person i have contacted here $2000+ easy.

    so buying this camera is a way for me to help him and a better way to help myself of course, and this is his camera of choise.

    I'm a professional photographer. My advice would be to to buy the camera in St Maarten, the flights from Santo Domingo are very cheap and there are some amazing priced camera shops there. I think the one I use is called Caribbean Camera Center, I found the prices for cameras were much lower than the USA or Europe. Best to fly there, buy the camera, fly back and throw away all the packaging before you get on the plane, that way you can't be charged duty if stopped at the airport.
