I am affiliated with WalMart thru the LinkShare network. (WalMart has cameras) The only problem I have is that the WalMart links change FREQUENTLY and I have to constantly perform maintenance on their links.
Another option for you to look at is Chitika emini malls. Not quite the same as affiliate links - Chitika's offerings are PPC, like Adsense. Yes, they have cameras and camcorders among the products in their links.
Amazon? They have a wide selection, good return policies, and name recognition, which can mean a better conversion rate.
I would say try Amazon as well.
get a cj account and a performics account.

Due to the good return policies of Amazon, I had to pay back commissions about 18 month after someone purchased. amazons reply to my inquiries was that the product was still under warranty, whereas my assumtion is that this high end gadget was returned to get a more up to date gadget.
Anyway, good return policies are good for you when you sell your own product because you can keep the buyer satisfied and build your brand. With affiliate sales - especially when promoting via PPC - it can fire back.
An other good thing about amazon is that visitors who click through quite often buy something else which you get credti for.
Nothing wrong with CJ, the interface tends to be easier to use than LinkShare and merchants seem to pay more in CJ than LS. Just have to find a merchant that actually pays something. BestBuy, Circuit City probably pay 2% or something like that. Target through LinkShare might pay more & there are some others in CJ that sell that stuff.
Watch for return days. Many have *very* short return days and I've had loads of non-commissionable sales for people who bought past the time limit.
Thanks for all the info.
I've thought about CJ, used it years ago and dropped it. Others have told me to stay away but maybe I'll give it a try since it has a number of merchants that sell digital cameras.
they have Dell, Walmart, J&R
(Dell only pays 1% :()
