Im not too sure

Out of all of the badges down the side on the left only two of them link off and both to the same place...

and who spells deals with a Z? I'd be careful on that site

I have an FX1 and cant praise it enough but Sony have recently released a new smaller camera, the fx7 i think which could be worth a look

Best of luck with your purchase

The Camera Professionals has a bad reputation. Some of the comments made about them on the web are: "Horrible Company", "Scam Artists", "Rude and Unprofessional", "False Advertising", "Fraud Scheme". Here's a link to complaints:

The sponsors of this forum such as B&HPhotoVideo are reputable companies:

This is a well-known notorious scam site.

Always check resellerratings.com before you buy.

The only reputable dealers are sponsors here. Don't waste your time anywhere else.

Simply put they will not sell you a camera at that price. Those companies are notorious... they offer a price, and if you buy, they will not send you a confirming invoice. When you call, they will then try and sell you the battery for $300, the charger for $300, etc etc - all things that COME ith the camera. If you bite, you will pay MORE than buying from good dealers like the sponsors of this site.

In cameras, if it SOUNDS too good to be true, it is.
