Photography Question 
 

Royalcamera.com


I have been watching royalcamera.com and the prices are amazingly low. Does anyone have experience using them?

  I'm pretty sure that what they are selling you is a "grey market" camera. I'm pretty sure that it is just the camera, it's generally from Japan, so all the menus are in Japanese. After you order it, you are put on back order, and they tell you that they are out of stock and they give you the run-around for about a month. How they are able to sell it this cheap, is they, like I said before, don't sell it with any of the included accessories. Then the completley over charge you for the batteries, lens hood, memory cards, ect. So my advice is to just suck it up, and buy it from a reputable retailer.

  Thanks - Your response makes more sense than their prices.

Prices too good to be true usually are just that.

  Do not trust Royal Camera. You will have nothing but trouble.
