Camera Availability''

Everywhere I shop be it Sony Style or BH photo, seems to not have the NX5 or AX2000 available for order..Is Sony having a supply issue with these cams or what...I am seriously looking into purchasing another cam to go along with my current AX2000 which I love...I am really leaning toward the NX5 and since I can get 2 years same as cash financing from sony style its a great time to buy..I just payed off my AX2000 using this method..But none are available at either place, and no restock date is being reported.....

Re: Camera Availability''

There seems to be a supply shortage of many cameras built in Japan right now. If you use the Sony F3 as a guide I understand there won't be any more stock until late June or early July.

Obviously that is a sample size of 1 and isn't statistically significant but there a number of message threads on the forum here discussing the availability problem with many of the current batch of popular cameras on the market.

Its going to be a trying summer for many consumers hoping to have a new camera in their hands.

Re: Camera Availability''

Thanks, I hope they don't jack the prices up when they do arrive...I will probably get sony style to price match BH's current price difference, but I would hate to see the price jump when they do arrive...guess we will see...

Update just got off the phone with sony style, The AX2000 is available for order but will not ship till June 8th at the earliest..They also will price match BH photo on the NX5 when it becomes available around the same time...So I have my order in for the AX2000 as adviced but I can change it to the NX5 if I wish...Also the 2 year same as cash does not apply to the Video cams.(Rats) ....Oh well 1 year will do...

Re: Camera Availability''

I have heard that the shortage is due to the quake in Japan. Sony's Factory's were damaged. in some cases Sony will be 6 months behind

Re: Camera Availability''

They have now pushed the ship date to June 20th or later, and the NX5 will not be available till late july or early august if then, I am going to cancel my order and just wait for the NX5 to become available, then seek the lowest price for matching.
Its going to be a long summer.....

Re: Camera Availability''

I am still going to wait, I can get a pricematch cheaper from BH (3.995.00) so whenever they become available I will be doing the 1 year same as cash which is only available with my sony account...

Re: Camera Availability''

the AX2000 is available now (at-least if your lucky enough to find one)


The other day i sold my old camera and got the money so i opened a Chat on B&H and asked the guy if he knew when the camera would be in..... i got a response Call now we have 3 in stock.......... ok i call it took me a minute to get the phone and go through all there menus. guy picks up the phone i explain to him i just chated with someone online.... guess what SOLD out. ok so i tired another store "abes of maine" none tried a third store "J&R Music/Computer World" they had 2 in stock so i quickly pulled the trigger and bought it. But now if you go on B&H they are listed as IN stock
