Has anyone ever returned a camera to one of these vendors? The post office employees (I ended up talking to a supervisor) informed me that cameras are on a list of things, along with wristwatches, radios, TV sets, and other common electronic items, that are prohibited from being sent to China. That even if it's not labeled as a camera, it can be opened either in the U.S. or in China and confiscated, etc.

Any suggestions? Am I just ed?
I have returned two of these cameras, a fake #3 and my original broken #11. In both instances I declared them as "key car remote" which is what they came to me labeled as. No issues with the post office. I would think if it was that important to not allow those things to China they would specifically ask me, which they didn't. Since it originally came from China I don't see the problem. That's why you shouldn't go out of your way explaining every little detail to the post office. Just tell them the bare minimum (whether it is liquid, perishable or not) and be done with it.
