Haha I had a look at this for laughs and was flicking through the camcorder section... some of the pictures are taken directly from the B&H Photo Video website and still have the "BH Kit" labels on them.

Talk about laziness.

I would love to visit those stores. but this one was just recently made, and as someone had already mentioned, the address is a phony one.

When you google the item descriptions they are exact copies from imagining-resource. Hopefully no one'll fall for this.

uhh, not a lot of research needed...

"Unit of Measure: New Sealed"

my pentax only weighs 3 new sealed, wonder how much the k5 will weigh...

Also, the SKU is the same as the product number. Very clearly a bad attempt at a scam site...blenders is its own category?

also...

Pentax Optio M50

hmm, didn't realize pentax made a POS DVD camcorder


Would love to get a counter scam going....

Kaushik is a Sanksrit given name..

... that isn't all that uncommon. "Mr. Kaushik" is a dead giveaway as a likely made-up name.

I am somewhat familiar with the k-mount eBay store - it resells mostly Pentax lenses and equipment. His stuff is usually good condition, but a tad pricey (in my opinion). I am absolutely certain that this bogus new website has no connection with the eBay seller from Denver, who has a very good reputation.

Pity for Mr kaushik Malick that this Kaushiks store exists and may cause confusion.

Well my camera arrived today, and I must say you do get an awful lot of kit for your money!

My only question is - which one's the shutter button?

Very interesting *new* Pentax model - I'd guess the "shutter" button is the big green one!!

Out of curiousity, what model Pentax did you order???
