View Full Version : UK Traders for International shipping

Can you guys recommend a reliable UK trader for Professional video equipment (I Want to purchase the Sony HVR-Z5 camcorder) that can deliver worldwide? It is very economical now to purchase from UK as the British pound has sank very low now.
I found these sites:
Welcome to Pro Active - Professional Broadcasting Equipment & Camcorder Packages from Sony, Canon & Panasonic (http://www.proav.co.uk/)
Globalmediapro eShop (http://www.globalmediapro.com/)

ProAV are very good, though obviously I've not tried their international shipping.
CVP (Creative/Mitcorp) are also very good (though shipping may be pricey).
I've no experience of GlobalMedia Pro.

The UK's Number 1 Apple & Adobe Dealer - Jigsaw Systems Ltd (http://www.Jigsaw24.com) supplied my EX3 and MBP and are also a UK sponsor of DVinfo so that's another one to strongly consider.

FWIW, that dealer is no longer a DVi sponsor (just to set the record straight).
Currently I am actively seeking one or two solid, reliable, trustworthy
full-line dealers to service the UK and EU markets on DV Info Net.

Thanks for the update Chris. I stand corrected... and sorry for any confusion.
Wow, they did n't last long, they only started being a sponsor a few months back! Maybe a sign of our desperate UK economic situation (as is the state of the pound - which the original poster mentioned as the reason for seeking a UK supplier).

Thank you guys for all the info. But it's really unbelievable how the value of the sterling pound dropped against the Euro in such a short time; maybe this will make the British rethink about their policy of not changing their currency to Euro as the rest of Europe.

The way things are going, there will be parity between the £ and the Euro within the week anyway :-)

Maybe they should change the Euro to GBP instead lol.....
