Just purchased the HD100!

Hello all!

Just had an inquiry. Ordered the HD100 online, and the interesting thing is, the dealer said I would be getting it next week, which was a shock to me, because I heard the camera isn't shipping until June. Can someone confirm that? Should I not get my hopes up?

Los.

Who'd you order it from?

The camera does not exist yet. No production models will be available until July.

Sounds like a scam to me. Be careful. Look up the dealer on www.resellerratings.com, and make sure, if you pay at all, you pay with credit card or some other insured method that guarantees you the product or your money back.

I believe the shipping date will be most likely July, not June.

Yes, at NAB they revised the shipping date and said that it would be July, not the previously-announced June.

The hiperlink takes you to a Balance Stabilization System for Video Cameras

This is just a balance stabilizacion system, not the camera...Well, at least that is where my computer takes me when I hit the hiperlink.

Just to add to the previous comment re: delivery time, my supplier in Orlando, FL confirmed me today that it will be July, not June as originally anounced.

Um, that was just a little attempt at humor on my part...

But seriously, I'm really curious as to what Carlos ordered, what it cost, and whom he ordered it from. As others have pointed out, it sounds suspicious.

Actually, this seller was listed on this forum, and I've seen their ads in DV and Videomaker magazine. Legit enough or should i still watch out? The ad said pre-order, but the sales-rep I spoke to said we'd have it in about a week. anyways, if it does show up, I'll keep you guys posted on its performance.

We shall see :)

Los.

Can you provide the website (or a hyperlink to it)? I have seen this one http://www.armatosvideo.com/pdetails.asp?itemID=10532, but it does not say anything about shippint time. Is this the same one you pre-ordered from? If so, a double check with another sales rep regarding the shipping date would be nice to have...

No one can tell you whether or not this dealer is 'legit' if you don't tell us who it is.

What I can tell you is, any dealer who says you will receive a JVC HD100 in the next week is obvioulsy not telling the truth. As others have mentioned, JVC has said the camera won't ship until July.

So, what company did you order from?

I've already been in contact with the JVC sales manager and he did confirm that it will be shipping in July. Also he recommended Full Compass as the place to order it from at least in the midwest. I contacted Full Compass and the sales rep hadn't even heard of the camera (I think that full compass is more geared towards audio). 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.

Personally, I'm going to sell my FX1 and pick this puppy up. I jumped into my purchase of the FX1 without doing my research. The HD100 looks like exactly what I need.
