Really good price on 1DX?
« on: January 22, 2013, 11:43:38 PM »
As I live in Australia, I am not familiar with some of the US online companies. Can anyone give me any comments on a company called HDV Pro Broadcast Tools, Chicago.(www.hdvtools.com) - They are advertising a Canon 1DX body for just AU$4795. and the lowest price I can find otherwise is thro' DWI  at AU$5559 ex Hong Kong. HDV require all  buyers to use Liberty reserve to pay for the item, which is not something I have had any experience with. Any comments are appreciated.

They seem suspicious but I have no experience with them. Take a look at this thread I found

This one belongs in the "too good to be true" category.
