      I’ll second B&H. Over a couple decades, I’ve never had a bad experience. I only had one item that went back ordered, but it was only a few days later than the main shipment. Their web site is accurate for inventory and no pricing surprises. I would rather pay a bit more for good customer service.

      Everyon on these boards seems hyped about B&H, and probably rightly so. But anytime someone mentions another company selling cameras, everyone yells "scammers" and mentions B&H.

      Is there not a single nother reputable camera company that sells over the internet?

      There are many reputable internet retailers. After you search through them you’ll see B&H prices are hard to beat.

      How do you tell the reputable ones from the non?

      Like this?

      http://www.usaphotonation.com/products.asp?product_id=10010&engine=shopcartusa

      They have a Canon GL for $1469 before the $250 rebate.

      Thats a full $300 under B&H, but they sound reasonable? How do I tell?

      Well, a guy gets busy, vanishes for a few days, and everyone starts chattin’ πŸ™‚

      My advice would be to research anyone before you buy. A lot of us have had super good luck with B&H. That’s why they get such high praise.

      I’ve bought a couple cameras from Norman Camera. They have good prices on some of their stuff (Canons are usually cheaper than B&H at Norman, FWIW), and they’re pretty reliable. I actually found them from the Canon website.

      There are a LOT of grey market resellers out there. I prefer to stick to sources I can trust. That’ why I use guys like B&H, who prove themselves repeatedly.

      B&H is reliable. That’s worth a lot when you consider the pain of having to cancel an order because _insert any of 100 reasons.

      New Egg is also very reliable for computer stuff and I even bought my DVX 100B from there.

      I know this is an old thread from July but hey why not get it started again. I am confused…

      If Abe’s of Maine is so bad, why does… or DID… VIdeomaker run their ads in its magazine.

      Trust me… I am not arguing with any of your opinions. I have come to rely on your experience in saving my money. If Compusolver says don’t do it, I WILL NOT.

      But I believe it is a valid question, though. Does this magazine check out its advertisers first or just sell the ads?

      B&H is a good, solid retailer. But you won’t steal anything there. There are places to find better deals on big purchases. I bought my last GL2 at Beach Camera (online) and I paid $300 less than B&H and the sale was perfect in every way. It seems that Beach doesn’t currently carry the GL2 though (too bad, I need another one).
