I'm gonna try this one more time before I break down and cancel my orders to pick up a simple cam to hold me over till it comes out (mine broke in a moto accident):

Will anyone sell me their GH1 for $1750?

You will be helping my 501(c)(3) charity La Mancha Media. I film in orphanges and service projects around the world and create video shorts for them free of charge. http://lamanchamedia.org (http://lamanchamedia.org) In fact, there may be a way you can get a tax deduction for 2009 if we arrange the transaction correctly. I need to know within about a day, otherwise have to put a bunch of orders in at Amazon.com for a different camera and accessories. Thanks!

I need to go finish up Central America. Have about 10 places waiting for me.

Hey rubber, yours seems like a worthy cause and I may be able to help. When do you need it by? I have a pre-order(I'm first in line) with a small retailer in my home province of B.C. for a 2nd camera. If you'd like I'll arrange for him to let you have that order. He is very used to dealing with American customers as he's right on the border. You'd pay none of our taxes as it's being shipped out of the country but there may be some duties. At the time his price was $1799 Cdn. A good deal with exchange rate. 2 things that may be a concern to you. It will have a Canadian warranty and may not be in his hands until the end of June. Don't want a dime out of this and I can wait awhile for my 2nd cam. Let me know if this works for you.

Quite funny that we have ten times more GH1s in Canada for some reason...

So you're willing to pay 250$ more than the USD retail price?

I might buy a few to sell to desperate americans on eBay...

P.S.: Sorry rubber, can't do for now
