This must be a scam??

How can they sell this for this cheap?? I know if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

it's really a scam, forget about it !
don't even think on buying on this site !
everything you will get about this one is they really sell cameras and DSLR and so on at this price but once you checked out, they will ask you to buy some "extras" telling something like lots of parts are not available within the box and you NEED to buy them separately... those pieces costs likely the half the price of what you was buying...
If you don't do so, they will cancel your cart. If you do so, you will get your Camera the same price you would get it anywhere else.

"Ditto!" a friend used to use this and similar companies. get billed for the lens, mic, batteries, manual etc. If he fought to just get the camera, they would cancel his order.

They will also take your money, then tell you a few days later that the camcorder body is back ordered and will ship in a few days, if you call them back in a week, they will say it's still back ordered and will ship tomorrow or next day. They continue this as long as they can keep your money. Then when you finally demand a refund they say it'll take 30 to 45 days to process the refund...
