I've no experience with this company, but I'd be really careful about them.

Certfied Digital - - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings

The ratings there are generally good, but, in my opinion, appear to be highly suspect.

Read the reviews about them and make your decision to order from them.

I wouldn't buy from them, I mean, the k-r is pretty cheap from a reputable retailer like Amazon, might as well go with that. Maybe not as cheap as this, but seems like it's one of those if you call in and don't agree to buy all this overpriced crap, then the camera magically becomes out of stock.

You may want to look at this page it states their mailing address is supposedly a PO Box In Brooklyn, NY.

I'd never order from anyone that deals out of a PO Box..

I was considering buying from them and read the reviews and was a bit wary. There were warnings of upselling and having to call them after placing an order. I emailed them to politely ask how they could sell the camera so cheap and would I receive an email asking me to call them after placing an order. Their reply asked me to call them.

I bought from a reputable merchant on eBay.

Finally got my order canceled after a long struggle but hadto accept a $59 fee to do it. Beware of charges you only find out about afteryour card is charged. Here’s a link everyone should see think their grade should tell you everything you need to know about them.

I'd dispute the charge through the credit card company. If you didn't authorize it, and policy about being charged is buried in fine print someplace, you've got a decent shot at getting the $59 back.

these look like the same guys who've operated under a number of names going back to the mail order days. Bad news if you ask me, and not cheap enough to consider

have a look here for a long list of similar places

Stay clear!!! I just checked site reviews and they look fake , and i also saw people coming up with the same conclusion about them on other sites.

Just do a good search of the company when your looking next time, if a company is fake or has really bad service record, their will be plenty people postings warnings about them.
