DUDE... You BETTER CANCEL THIS IMMEDIATELY. They are a total scam. Before buying anything at all online, unless you know the company, you should check out www.resellerratings.com


This company gets a 1 out of 10... 33 reviews and all of it BAD. It's a SCAM SIGHT> GET on it ASAP or it'll be a prolonged nightmare... When the price is too good to be true it is. This cam shouldn't be selling anywhere for less than 3400. That's what I've found.

LOL.. HOly crap indeed. There must be some way we could collectively pull a huge scam on this company. We need to do something and really piss them off. I think it's only fitting... Sad thing is how many people fall for this kind of crap! I

Yes they sell the HVX for $ 1,399 while at the same time they offer you a whole lot of overpriced crap quality accessories like the "Deluxe Lens Care & Maintenance Package" for $27.95!!!

What a scam!!

Ehh... it's not like you're out money or anything. It's a simple bait and switch scam. Call them to confirm order, they'll try and upsell you a bunch of worthless crap for 2 grand, you say no, they'll then say that the camera is out of stock and send your money back. Could be a pain for a couple days... but you'll get it sorted.

Don't people know that if there's any doubt at all to just buy from B&H (or Amazon)? I mean, right now, today, they have the camera for $3,399. A very reasonable price from the most legit company on Earth in this business.

I wish I had a DUMB ASS STEP DAD when I was YOUNG who would BUY ME a proSUMER camera when I obviously don't really have any RESPECT or APPRECIATION for that PERSON.

That, and what everyone else said about B&H or Spec-Comm or WHPlatts. All Panasonic dealers or Panasonic Flagship dealers.

Glad you raised the step dad issue Erik. Hope the step dad does a tour of the dv groups and pays a visit to DVX User.

I think I felt that way about my own dad about 43% of the time, but he never bought me the 16mm camera I wanted either. I had to do that on my own and literally bled to get it. I have daddy issues.

Wait until you're older. My dad was a sergeant in the army, and didn't buy me anything big at all. His idea of a fun weekend was to have me get up early and do chores while my friends were out playing.

Now, he's 80 and had a major stroke two years ago, and I love him more than anyone in the world. I only wish I had spent more time with him when I was younger.
