What is the best reliability online store to buy a Canon XL2?
on Jul 27, 2006 at 5:09:21 am

I'm going to buy a Canon XL2 next week and would like to know what online store has the best price and reliability. I look at these two site http://www.geniuscameras.com and http://www.expresscameras.com. They have nice prices but are they reliability? I would love any help? Thank you.

Hi,

Try B&H Photo in New York.
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?A=search&Q=&b=8&mnp=0.0&mxp...

They might give you a discount if you state your a member of Creative Cow or SCVUG or NYVUG.

I bought mine off of http://www.expresscameras.com. The camera shipped fast, and was brand new in the box, as were all the accessories in the package. The accessories it came with are okay, nothing to scream and shout about. My business partner also just purchased one from them, and got the higher package than I did, and he has been very happy with his accessories (the tripod it came with, etc.). My only complaint about the company is the incredibly aggressive salesman I worked with, as he tried again and again and again after I repeatedly told him I wasn't interested, to upsale me on about a thousand different items that I knew I didn't need. I stuck to my guns and didn't give in to his pitches, but be aware that that might happen. His name was Nick, and he was very knowledgable, but very hard to work with. My business partner, on the other hand, had a very pleasant experience with his salesman, and was not bothered at all with any upsales. It all depends on who you talk to. expresscameras has a clean rap sheet with the BBB, and they were my choice after looking into about 30 different companies, both locally and over the net.

I'd take the advice to look at B&H Photo first, but http://www.expresscameras.com is definitely a legit, realiable company, based upon the two experiences I have seen.

Hi Xeeb,

I have bought a lot of equipment from B&H Photo. They're definitely a legit and realiable company. Plus, there's no prssure to buy from the sales people because they do great business with your business or without. I have been to their store in New York and they're very helpful.
Try them you'll like them.

Zotz Digital is a straight up company serving a lot of pro-shooters. They are in Washington State. They have some nice XL2 packages that might be of interest to you.

I bought two XL2's from Samys Camera in Los Angeles. I pre-ordered them before Canon had shipped any to the U.S. back in August 2004. Samys is a premier Canon dealer, a first rate business in my book. I have purchased from their web site on several occassions without a single problem. (BTW, the XL2's were shipped to me the day after Samys received them from Canon.) I have also done tons of business with B&H Photo/Video in New York and they are outstanding as well. Good luck!

Larry
