Los.
You're in trouble lol And why are you not revealing the vendor's name?

Do Not Trust Too Many Resellers

You cannot go wrong with the Big Three:

B & H
EVS
ZGC

Personally, I do not patronize any other store for major purchases.

My thoughts exactly. With such large purchases it is extremely unwise to go with someone else. B&H is like a well oiled machine that wont let you down, and EVS is highly personal (in a good way) when dealing with you (almost feels like a mom and pop store to me...once again, in a good way.) I never ordered from ZGC before, but I have only heard good things about them.

Never heard of EVS or ZGC before. I order from B&H quite often though. They are good, except for their phone customer service I heard is quite rough.

I've experienced very reliable service from B&H for several years. Many of my associates also use EVS. Beware of small online shippers that promise the world...What you'll get is a world of problems.

Oh yeah. I only buy from a few select vendors. B&H is my main one for my basic photo needs. Calumet Photo is my one for lighting gear (amazing service). Newegg.com is my computer vendor. And Midwest Media Group is my vendor for the big stuff.

I bought something online a long time ago and the company went out of business. It was then that I learned not to buy the cheapest thing out there.

The sales rep was extremely nice and said that as of right now, he can't give me any pricing except for the list which is $6295, but of course that's not going to be the sale price.
This past year I bought a shotgun mic from Full Compass. Their customer service was excellent and the product arrived on time. They don't necessarily specialize in video equipment, but they are reputable and professional.

I think this new boot just wanted your attention... And apparently he got more than he deserved.

Amen. Make sure you read the thread which talks about all the sneaky, nefarious ways some of these dealers use to rip you off when selling you "grey market" equipment and such

Just got an e-mail from the dealer apologizing for the mistake of his sales person, told me the camera wouldn't show up until July, just as we had heard. He did say we were pretty much the first one to purchase it from him though. So now we can breathe again haha.

By the way we purchased it from Armatos.

Take care all, I'm gonna go PARTY for my birthday!!! :)

Los.

By the way, thanks for calling me new boot, its much appreciated, sure I'm new around here, but I think your wording is uncalled for, "Regular Crew."

Los.

Thanks for the update, Carlos!

Glad to hear that the dealer called you back, sounds like it's going to work out for you.

We use the terms "new boot" and "regular crew," etc. only as a reflection of the number of posts a person has made to our message board. It certainly isn't meant to reflect your real-world experience and skills. Hope this helps,

Chris is right, it's nothing to do with your personal skills or anything...

No need to get all sensitive on us - but you can call me 'Regular Crew' any time you want, I'm quite happy with that. :)

As to your 'shopping adventure' with Armatos... Well, we'll have to take your word for it.
