Well, going by the link N864DA provided, you should probably stick with a place like dell...

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! I got ripped off. I ordered my camcorder with a 4 hour battery....ended up paying the same as I would if I went to Circuit City and they did not SHIP IT!! SO now I am stuck with a $1,000 camera and a 1 hour battery that will not work for me. They were so mean to me I am in tears! I can't believe people can be so evil and cruel. SCAM!!

Simply put, find another store to do business with. This place is not worth the hassel.

sold a foreign camera which cannot be repaired in Us. dishonest about warranty and wouldn't accept return of product stating it was part of a package deal and the whole purchase could only be returned with a 15% restocking fee. Agreed to try and appease me with sending me additional products that were of inferior quality. By the time I received the additional products, I was beyond the 7 day return period and they threatened not to accept return of products. Dishonest untrustworthy people to work with. Beware.

Tried to cancel the order, but the customer service person was, to begin with, rude and unacommodating. They said they can't cancel the order because it was already processed. But calling the bank revealed they didnt charge me yet. I am very confused with their business practices, they say their policy is truth in advertising, but thats truth bordering on swindling naive people out of their money. They said camera and lens, so, thats all you get, no manual, no cd, not even a battery and charger, and they charge you for the battery and charger the same amount you pay for the camera, you end up paying more than the street price of the camera.

What a horrible experience. I ordered a Canon SD500 at what looked like a great price. I was then called by a rep asking me to contact my credit card company to attach my shipping address to my card. When I called them back as instructed, I was then asked "What battery do you want with this camera?" I said "Do you mean to tell me that this camera does not come with a battery?" He said "No it does not." He said that I could order one of two different batteries, which appeared to be very expensive, around $80. I then said "Cancel my order." I'll never try and purchase anything from them again.

I did things backwards -After placing my order I started checking up on this store. I became concerned after checking the NY BBB. This store has the same address in Brooklyn as Infinety camera whose BBB info was negative. Now I was suspicious. Then I came upon this site and called and cancelled my order(I hope). Bottom line is that it is not worth it to deal with a company that is run like this. I have used Beach Camera.com and they were great. I'm not entirely sure what this store is about, but "buyer beware"

US$539 sounds unbelievably cheap!

£529 at www.warehouseexpress.com in the UK, which converts to US$940.

By and large, this site is the cheapest over here, so if you guys can get one a lot lower then we're being ripped off big style!

I actually held one for the first time today. It seems lovely, very small and very robustly built in comparison to the 300D that I use.

Obviously missing something....

Yeah, it looks like maybe you're being ripped off. Then again, I thought that was just the way it is over there.  Big grin

For what it's worth - I just sold my Digital Rebel (300D) with battery grip on E-Bay for $625.00. Not bad for a camera almost 2 years old!  bigthumbsup 

Now that money goes into my L glass fund!

All those places you find on the internet are scams.

Ask them if they have stock and they will tell you yes. Tell them you want the body only, they have just run out. They give you a massive run around and in the end, thy do nothing but blow smoke up your ass. I got mine at B&H for 809.00.

Stay with reputable dealers.

I paid the same you did for shipping, but since I live in TX I get charged state tax. I also just happen to get what amounts to overnight service for free from dell because they're so close. They shipped it monday and it was at my house tuesday afternoon, even though I didn't pay for fast delivery.  Smile

I've been keeping an eye on prices using www.bizrate.com. The listings include ratings on each place. For the Digital Rebel XT look here: http://www.bizrate.com/digitalcamera...029372/compareprices__sort--7.html
