I'm looking at purchasing a camcorder before a take a trip overseas in October. I'm specifically looking at the JVC GR-DVL820U MiniDV video camera. I checked it out at Best Buy last week and I'm sure this is the camera I'd want to go with... they've got it for $899. I'm also a subscriber to Popular Photography magazine. And anyone that's ever picked up a periodical of this nature knows about all the advertisements that take up more than half the magazine. They're normally businesses based out of New York City and usually selling items for several hundred dollars less than you'd find locally. This automatically brings up a red siren... However, I contacted a business called Abe's of Maine yesterday based out of Brooklyn, NY. And I asked "Nick" about the same camcorder I found at Best Buy. Yes, he has the same one in stock. Yes, he reiterated the item was brand new. Yes, it comes with a USA warranty and not an International warranty. The same camcorder can be had by "Nick" for $649. Shipping is $29 to Minnesota or 2nd Day Air can be had for $40. Does have any experience at all ordering from one of these retailers? Scott.
