Opinions? Taking the Plunge & Ordering 2 - Where's the best place to buy?


I've decided to officially sell my Canon XL-1's and GL-1.

What is the best website to buy 2 new Panasonic DVX100 cameras from?

I figured many of you purchased online and I would like to hear your opinions.

Thank you,

Judging from my experiences with other camera equipment purchases from zotzdigital, and the experiences of countless others on this board, zotz should probably be your first choice.

Even though zotz is a sponsor here, I don't think any of us would have any problem calling them out if they were ripping people off, but I hear nothing but praise for them from everyone who deals with them.

B&H, of course, is old reliable. You can very seldom go wrong with B&H either.

The "where to buy" question is the single most important question we get here and it's treated with the utmost importance. I take this topic very seriously and reserve the right to have the last word on it (hence the closed thread).

I strongly urge dealing only with our DV Info Net sponsors. The reason I signed them up to support this board is that they're simply the best in the business in terms of reliability, honesty, value and customer service. I get inquiries all the time from camera dealers wanting to get on our sponsor list, but I turn down most all of them. Only those dealers known to me personally on a face-to-face basis have any chance of getting on board with us. Two of these are authorized Panasonic dealers, Zotz Digital and Pro-Tape. They'll take good care of any DVi member.

References to dealers not on our sponsor list tend to get deleted, as a service to our readers and out of respect for the sponsor members who pay for our message boards that you're reading now. Sorry, but I can't allow posts that drive traffic towards dealers I don't know and away from the sponsors who pay for the boards here. Hope this helps,
