Shipping to Japan.

Dear B&H,

Can you still ship cameras with lithium ion batteries to Japan?

The reason I ask is because although I've shipped to and had cameras shipped from international locations on numerous occasions before. This week i tried to ship a small point and shoot to my mother in Australia but it seems EMS is really cracking down on the lithium ion air shipping. They simply refused to ship it. I asked if I were to say there was no battery in it would they ship it and was told that the lithium battery can be see by th X-Ray and it wouldn't pass customs.

Although this is not Pentax related (as I can get all the Pentax gear I need here in Japan) I do want to purchase a Samsung (I assume you carry the range?) because their cameras are unavailable in Japan.

Regards,
Paul Singleton.

Hello,

As far as we know, there are no restrictions on shipping cameras with lithium ion batteries internationally.

I can help you place your order via E-Mail. (sales@bhphotovideo.com)

We can then send you a price quote. You can then use the quote's reference number when sending your payment.

To start, I'll need;

1- The items you wish to buy. Please send me a brief description or the B&H SKU number located on an items product page.

2-Your billing and shipping address and contact phone number. Please remember that a signature is required for all shipments upon receipt.

PLEASE wait for a quote number before sending your payment. Once you receive your quote, please review the information and verify that everything is correct.

Please DO NOT send credit card information in your e-mail. Once you have a quote number, You will be given a secure method to transmit your payment details to B&H.

Hello,

Have used the NX10 all summer ( had to give it back to Samsung ) it's excellent and I'm told more lens are coming. The NX100 looks very cool, but have not seen it yet.

Chuck
