How to practice safe PayPal?

I'm about to purchase a $1500 camera from a fellow I met through an online photography forum. I'll be paying via PayPal (funded by my American Express). I've no reason to think the seller untrustworthy, but what can I do to protect myself just in case?

On buying a nice watch . . .

On buying a nice watch: if I go with a local jeweler, the watch I'm after will run me about $900. If I go with an online retailer (or trust someone on the forums at timezone.com) I can get it for $400 - $600. Aside from the cost difference, what are the pros and cons of each? [more inside]

How can I stop receiving all these catalogues?

Catalog spam. I ordered a bed frame online, and was pleased with the result. Since then, however, I've been getting a catalog of some sort or another (Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Linens & Things, etc) almost every day - sometimes more than one. It's driving me crazy. Is there anything I can do short of changing address?
