UK Traders for International shipping

Can you guys recommend a reliable UK trader for Professional video equipment (I Want to purchase the Sony HVR-Z5 camcorder) that can deliver worldwide? It is very economical now to purchase from UK as the British pound has sank very low now.

I found these sites:

Welcome to Pro Active - Professional Broadcasting Equipment & Camcorder Packages from Sony, Canon & Panasonic

Globalmediapro eShop

Stelios,

ProAV are very good, though obviously I've not tried their international shipping.

CVP (Creative/Mitcorp) are also very good (though shipping may be pricey).

I've no experience of GlobalMedia Pro.

The UK's Number 1 Apple & Adobe Dealer - Jigsaw Systems Ltd supplied my EX3 and MBP and are also a UK sponsor of DVinfo so that's another one to strongly consider.

FWIW, that dealer is no longer a DVi sponsor (just to set the record straight).

Currently I am actively seeking one or two solid, reliable, trustworthy
full-line dealers to service the UK and EU markets on DV Info Net.

Thanks for the update Chris. I stand corrected... and sorry for any confusion.

Wow, they did n't last long, they only started being a sponsor a few months back! Maybe a sign of our desperate UK economic situation (as is the state of the pound - which the original poster mentioned as the reason for seeking a UK supplier).

Thank you guys for all the info. But it's really unbelievable how the value of the sterling pound dropped against the Euro in such a short time; maybe this will make the British rethink about their policy of not changing their currency to Euro as the rest of Europe.
