    i haven't compared for video, but dslr cameras are very cheap there. post when you get it. i'm curious about the customer support.

    edit: just checked the site, they are about 25% lower on some items. too good to be true. keep us informed.

    I will never EVER buy any camera gear from a website that has prices that are not within current prices.

    My Xsi was like 399 from some random internet site, I skipped that and paid 850 or so.
    at least my camera cam with batteries, a lens and a manual!

    i wouldn't go outside a 20% variance.

    ie. $1000 camera can be $800-$1200. if it's $500, something is wrong with it or its not legit.

    Yeah, no.

    Pay full retail for it. ESPECIALLY for camera/camcorder equipment. Unless you aren't worried about a grey-market warranty.

    Nope no way, i cancelled it after you posted that site, 384 complaints of all the same thing.

    I ended up buying a Panasonic Lumix TZ5 9.1 MP camera. The Video is really good on it + you can zoom the video. Takes really nice pictures as well. Paid about $380 after tax, 8gig card and camera case.

    Not taking my chances with that company.
