I'll try and e-mail them shortly for pricing. It's only about 2 PM there right now. I don't have there e-mail, so I'll try sales@tasmanav.com.au

I couldn't find their e-mail on their address!

Kermie, would you happen to know www.tasmanav.com.au 's e-mail address? I sent an e-mail using sales, then support, but I haven't heard back from them.

Perhaps I'll try cameraaction.com.au to see if they can get them or they know a good dealer who sells them.

Oh! Okay. I know them. I just forgot. Yes, they answer their e-mails. They even sell the Panasonic MX line! Thanks!

Do you know their e-mail?

I tried, sales@, support@, info@, and store@. They all got bounced back.

Yes. But I don't want to buy it in Canada. I just got 1 reply with an Aussie price:

DS5 w/ legs, cordura case & mid level spreader
RRP: $1095.00 AU.

That's 1/2 the going Canadian price! The only problem with this dealer is that they won't ship outside of Australia. I'll keep e-mailing around.

Perhaps there is an australian DVi member who'd be gracious enough to purchase them, and ship them to us? There needs to be a great level of trust for something like this however...

I'm more interested in the DS10 for my XL1s, unless real-world users can speak for the 'lesser' DS5 being able to handle a loaded XL1s?...

Yes, don't go for a DS5 for your loaded XL1. I just have small cams, so the DS5 is what I'm looking for.

If you get someone to buy it for you in AU, they have to pay the tax (GST), and there might even be another tax---I'm not sure.

My brother-in-law lives in Sydney, he would do it, but there's the tax. It's better to find a dealer who is set-up to ship out of country. When I get some positive responses, I'll post here.

Also, I'm not in a rush to buy, because I already have a great tripod/head for my cams...I just want something better, and lighter: the Miller DS5.

I'm going to be sending out serveral more e-mails tonight, and hopefully I will have some results in a couple of days.

Frank,

Have you tried emailing Miller and asking them who their dealers are? Do they list them on their web site?

I haven't tried that. If I e-mailed them, they'd probably reply with Leo's Photo (in Vancouver). They are the Canadian distributor for Miller as well as a dealer.

I'm still waiting to hear back from

production@tasmanav.com.au

along with from a couple of other places.

I did go and have a look at the DS5, and found that for my small cams, it's perfect. However, it's too over priced here.

To be honest, i think the only way to deal with them is to call, find a world time website and ring between 10-5 during a weekday, i think there is some deals for like 10 minutes for a dollar, a dollar spent on a call is a lot less than $1000 more in price.

best i can do now.
