Canon 5D

I want to buy a Digital Camera. The 5D. After reading many of the reviews I want to know a good online site to buy a camera from. Many of the reviews that I see on sites state that these sites are scams or dishonest. Please if someone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. I need the camera soon and have the money but not enough to pay the full price as stipulated in camera stores. Any honest sites?

Lilit.

Re: Canon 5D

Probably Onestop-digital has the best reputation and excellent prices but don't forget, buying a camera on-line means that, if it goes wrong, you return it to supplier and you could be without it for weeks. For my only/main camera I would much rather buy from somewhere I can physically return it to.

Where are you based?

ps I deleted your other post then all replies will be concentrated in here.

Re: Canon 5D

It seems that BH Photovideo have a good reputation and have the 5D at $2700. You are right in that there a number of sharks particularly in the States.

Re: Canon 5D

Lilt, I just bought my 5D from adorama.com , I found them to have the best price at $2699 and I have bought stuff from them before and never had an issue. They ship UPS and have good packaging materials and also they will send the expensive stuff UPS and make it have to sign for it. The other places I found for a good price was on Amazon.com and it was $2699, and Digital Cameras, Camcorders, TV's, Home Theater, DVD Players, Apple iPods had it for $2699 as well. So there all about the same price unless you want to scope out ebay, which I'm not real comfy ordering an expensive camera from ebay. plus if I'm gonna spend that much money, I want it to be brand new.

Re: Canon 5D

I'm sure that other members have mentioned the Canon outlet on e-bay. I believe that they sell cameras that have had warranty fault fixed at low prices.

Can someone confirm if I've got this right?

Hey that 2699 was that for the camera or the camera and Kit? please let me know. I want to buy a camera kit. I have seen it around this price but question the integrity of the sellers. Please let me know.

Re: Canon 5D

The B&H photo price of $2699 is for the body only, you'll have to pay more for a kit... try clicking the links we provided and look for yourself, there may be several different packages to interest you.

Hey there how Are you? I just got off the phone with Tobias from Adorama. The guy was a flat out a******. He began yelling at me immediately after I spoke to him on the phone. I informed him I had a camera and he started yelling at me " YOu have the wrong Number" The internet stated that I should call him for shipping info but he was not interested in that he sent me to a voice mail and never answered his phone again after that. Are you sure that Adorama is legit bro? I have not recieved my camera yet but Im not worried as American Express will not pay for it unless I pay for it. Here is the issue. Why are these guys so damned rude?

Re: Canon 5D

Are you sure you got the right number...? Perhaps he lives nearby and keeps getting people calling for the store, when actually it is a residence...
Send them an email:
info@adorama.com

That's the best way to communicate...

Oh and here is a picture of their store....

That is a very good point. My telephone number is very similar to a local restaurant, and it is infuriating to get mis-dialled calls.

Re: Canon 5D

Adorama is a legit operation and has a (mostly) good reputation amongst photographers whom have used them to buy kit online.

Re: Canon 5D

I received both my EOS 5D and the 24-70mm L series lens along with it. I have a question. I was out at the water practicing night photos. I need serious help guys. Where do I go to get specific info on shooting night photos with this setup kit? I shot some photos and they did not come out to well. They looked great inside of my camera but once downloaded they were pretty faulty. Trying to get smooth water flow and lights from the city and bridge nearby.... Can anyone help?
