B&H Taking Orders!

I placed my order for one today, just thought I would let you all know they are taking orders. Can't wait to get it.

Mike

Has anyone here from Canada ever ordered from them? Am I going to get hit with huge customs/duty fees? Just curious to see if this is the way to go...

Thanks,

Mike

I got almost all my gears from B&H. I never have to pay any duty. Just be aware that if you ship the gears from the US with anything cheaper than "UPS Expedited", the custom may charge you $50 for brokerage fee.

It's too portable to pass up. I think I'll try and talk my wife into getting this later tonight. Did you get the mack warranty with it?

I was thinking of going with Fedex... 1 to 2 days. That should be good right?

BTW, is the MACK warranty worth it for those purchasing out of country? (Canada)

Thanks again guys! I'm definitely getting this little beauty.

I didn't bother today, but will before it ships.

Are you referring to the Mack warranty, or talking your wife into it? (grin)

I was referring to Mack warranty. But here's another question. I'm doing a doc in Belgium of some breweries in Belgium in May. Trick is I'll be on a bike. Need something light and portable. But I don't want to get into the HD DVD burner and player and TV just yet. Poor lightning conditions aside, any guesses on whether that 1/2.7 chip will still look good in SD as compared to my beater sony vx1000?

After I ordered my HV20, I did a quick on-line check just for kicks and found no one else even offering the camera yet. B&H is not offering any PAL units at this time.

Actually, another on-line site was offering it before B&H. I don't think I can mention them on this site.

They don't ship certain electronic devices to Canada though.

Mike T., have they given you an expected delivery date? I thought the HV20 wasn't available until April. But it would be great if it's shipping sooner.

No date of any kind. I expect a run on these and wanted to get one right away so I ordered.
