what is the store?

Seems to me it would be an excellent back up camera!
What is the store you buying it from? I hope it is not one of those rip off NYC stores.

Peace, Rolland

Yeah that sure is cheap, US$1250 is roughly JPY150 000 and the XV2 sells for JPY260 000 retail here in Japan.

Rip OFF do not be a sucker.

I emailed Cory privately the two stores he thinks he will get a deal out of are actuall con artists You can read more about customer complaints at www.resellerratings.com

I mean stores in new york city rip off customers all the time.
royal camera is a con job read some complaints here
http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1895.html

So is that other store, www.digitalliquidators.com, more complaints here:
http://www.resellerratings.com/seller2375.html

I highly recommend you check out a store's reputation before you buy from them.

If a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is!

Peace, Rolland

Yeah, I read all of the reviews by people, and about 90% of them cancelled their order before they could even find out how bad they were getting conned. The people who did wait for their package found out that the camera was fine, and that it wasn't missing all the batteries and straps like they said it would....They were all just displeased with the service (i.e. them ordering online, then having to call in only to be harassed by accesory salespeople.)

A sucker is born every minute.

Well If you actually get the camera let me know.

I've thought of ordering from one of those companies and then just returning the dumb accessories and paying the restocking fee and still getting a deal.

But do you really expect to get a deal out of a companies that constantly lie to people and try to rip off ignorant customers?

Peace, Rolland
