Reputable UK Canon dealers

I am very seriously thinking of ordering a Canon XF100. I live in the UK and I was just wondering which are the best dealers to buy from? I obviously want somewhere that supplies UK stock not grey imports and with full Canon UK warranty. I bought a load of gear from Jigsaw24 as they are in my city but they sadly don't seem to stock the XF100.

Canon XF100 Legria HD Camcorder - Proactive
Canon XF-100 (XF100) Professional Camcorder
http://www.prokit.co.uk/index.php?vi...order-XF100-HD

Quite a few dealers seem not to have any listed, not sure about the stock position from these above either. There's a number of other online stores but I haven't dealt with them myself.

They'll be fine.
I use Calumet (just bought the XF300 from them.)

I bought most of my gear from Calumet and they were great, but they are not listing the XF 100 at the moment so I didn't mention them.

Re: Reputable UK Canon dealers

Creative emailed me back and said the should have more this week. I'm waiting to hear back from the others. I need it before 1st April so I could really do with one of the above mentioned shops having some in stock for immediate delivery. Some of them have confusing stock levels with one bit saying in stock then further down the page saying pre-order etc.

Re: Reputable UK Canon dealers

Andy,

ProAV have never been great at responding to my emails - they will get there, but it may take a few days. They're solid enough, they aren't going to rip you off. CVP have always been great in terms of customer service.

Also, have you tried H Prestons? (H Preston - H Preston Media - Worcester & London) They're always pretty good for me (bought my last two cams from them), and they do part exchange.

Also also, maybe try Production Gear Ltd - The Home of Professional Video, they have been good too.
