EOS Bodies / Re: 5D mkii at $2,219 on Amazon today (12-7)

Oh, no offense at all... I was thinking that maybe I'd offended you. I don't have a dog in that fight- no affiliation to Henrys other than I occasionally buy stuff there.

Glad we're all good!  :)   

I'm still having a hard time not clicking "buy" on that damn BH page.  Don't know if it's inventory, or impending 5Dmkiii launch.  grrrr.   :(

I never implied that anyone was lying. Your bank has its own reasons but it's not because of Henrys' business practices, people in this country worship that place.  Besides which, two other American posters in this thread successfully made the transaction you attempted and had rave reviews. The consipiracy theorist in me wonders if it has anything to do with Chase being the financier for Best Buy/Future Shop, but it couldn't be that, could it?  ;D

Sorry for offending you, Wellfed.  I certainly wasn't trying to bad mouth Henry's or Canada.  That's God's honest truth.  I was just letting it be known that I got a "not so fuzzy feeling" after speaking with Chase.

If other folks on our side of the border had good experiences with Henry's, than I'm sure some other business arrangements, as you suggested, may be playing a role.

Again, I apologize for offending you.  That was not my intent at all.

Henrys is as pure as the driven snow.  If Chase wouldn't authorize then it was for some other reason.

Dunno what the 'other reason' could be... Chase clearly stated they do not authorize international charges with Henry's.

If it was a credit issue, I'm pretty sure they would have told me.  Why would they lie?

Make sure you know where you are buying from.

B&H happen to have also dropped prices nicely on the 5D2 and 5D2 kit.


I tried the Henry's $1,999 deal a few weeks back on the 5D when it was in stock.  After 3 failed attempts I called Chase (my credit card provider) to ask them what the deal was.  They simply said they wouldn't authorize the charge to Henry's.  Raised to many questions in my mind, so I gave up pursuing the order.

However, I may snag that BH deal...

$2,799 is hard to pass up.

If Ryusui is correct- you could get free shipping and pay only $1,979.22 USD from here:

Henry's has been sold out of the body only for a while now.  At least - it hasn't been showing up on their website.  just the kit.

Just dropped to $2,209 for body only.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D3 Announcement Date & Poll (and your thoughts)
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:58:57 PM »
I was recently told by a Canon employee (I will not mention their seniority, affiliation, etc., as to protect their identity) that he has seen "hints of a new EOS body" being unveiled at "the 2012 CES show".  CES 2012 is scheduled for January 10-13.

The employee I spoke with admitted that he was not privy to product launch information, or "in development" EOS bodies, and that specific launch date details are heavily guarded company secrets.  However, he did mention that Canon had plans for a "larger than normal" CES booth/presence this year, with arrangements being made for high level employees and product reps. to be on hand.

It's definitely a "read between the lines" kind of scenario - but interesting none the less.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DM2 Purchase From Canada (Henrys) to USA

P.S. the paypal currency conversion is not very advantagous for you (paypal takes a %)

I guess it's relative...

Even with Paypal's 2.9% currency exchange fee, the 5D MKII is still only $2,070 [Canadian] shipped to the US.  That's still a heck of a lot cheaper than the $2,349-$2,499 USD prices that the 5D MKII sells for here in the states.

Just got this back from them, about 15 minutes after I emailed....

"You will be charged in Canadian Funds and Paypal will make the necessary conversion.  We have 18 bodies as of the writing of this email."

w00t!   8)

EOS Bodies / Re: Photo gear insurance?
« on: November 06, 2011, 01:37:38 PM »
Anyone recommend any good (value) photo gear insurance. Preferably in the UK?


Don't know about the UK, but here in the states, I have a rider on my home owner's insurance policy for all of my photo gear.  It's only about $18 a month for coverage of all my gear - with a $100 deductible.  Premiums vary depending on if you're covering gear for personal use, or professional use.

Just a head's up to those posting photos in here...

You should repost your photos in the Official People Thread category if you want them to be considered for the contest.  It would be a shame for your photo to be disqualified by not posting in the proper thread!!
