I have listed a camera twice. Both times, the winning bidder was an account established the day of winning. I do not get paid and they do not respond to inquiries.
Is there any way to refuse sellers that do not meet minimum standards, like time in EBay?

Your camera went for $1,545.00 less than 6 days ago and you call your buyer a "Scammer" in the false positive you left for them.
Your possible problems are -
No matter what your buyer can still pay as they are within the 8 day minimum.
You can get a serious policy violation recorded on your account for the false positive.
You will be charged full fees by Ebay unless you open an unpaid dispute. And if as you say you have sold it twice without getting paid - double the fees.
If your buyer does pay you have most likely guaranteed yourself bad feedback.
Learn the rules and never ever leave feedback for a non-payer.

Immediate payment required can only be used on fixed price listings. But it might be worth it.
Although you cannot block new members there are other helpful block you can use. Go to Account, Site Preferences, Buyer Requirements and set them.
