I ran into the same kind of problem. My camera went for a swim when I overturned my canoe and is now resting on the bottom of a lake in NY.
I did a search for a new one and found everyone that had the one I wanted and my second choice was on backorder.
I found a site that let me order the camera not telling me it was being shipped from China.
I ordered it on 30 Aug and it is still not here. ALLEDGILY according to the tracking, it arrived at my local PO on 09 Oct but I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully, it will be here today.
