What would you think?

What would you think if you found a company that offer's DV camera's over $1000 cheaper than anyone else? Example the Canon Xl1-S for under $2400. Would you question if the company was legit or not? I called a company that offer's it this cheap, they swear they are brand new and functional. Not just a body but the complete camera. How could I find out if they are legit?

If they are not listed as an authorized Canon dealer, then I would pass.

Jason, you should read the various "where to buy" threads on these message boards -- in short, if the price is too good to be true, then something is very wrong and it's a rip-off waiting to happen. Here at DV Info, we promote only our deeply valued authorized dealer sponsors, who will give you the best *real* deal in the business. Hope this helps,
