    Digitalrev (grey import) price is $779, so this is a great price for local stock with AU warranty :)

  •  

    Online price is $998:

    Perhaps it might be a store-specific bargain? Which store was this at kluger?

      hi aldog, i got it from altona meadows.you can ring them at (03)93607655.

  •  

    wow, not bad for a twin lens kit, if i didnt have my pentax sigh

  •  

    I agree, this is a great deal for this camera.

  •  

    Nice price, please post invoice if you can. Cheer

    good price, but in Catalogue, it is $998, so how can you get $777?

  • +1 vote

    send us a copy of the invoice ill try go to my local here in perth and get it for 777

  •  

    Not a bad deal for Australia, kluger.

    But importing the same camera from bhphotovideo with 5-business-day UPS delivery puts it as USD $703.21, which is approximately $650 Australian dollars.

    You pay about $127 more for GST and I guess the convenience of Australian warranty. Quite good for those not comfortable with importing items, regardless.

  •  

    Great price, I'l be tracking one down in the morning.

  •  

    Saw it at Costco Canberra today for $900.

    •  

      i just got mine from Binglee for $900 and thought it was a good price. I'd be damned if it's $777 at bigW. Good price though

    Could you please upload a copy of the receipt? In the market for a D3100 or EOS 1100D myself at the moment as well, great price!

    Very good deal. Been looking for one for ages. Hope i can get a price match in perth.

    Doesnt look like a deal everyone can get. Sounds like you just got lucky, if you got it at that price at all that is

    • +1 vote

      You neg the deal even before you try getting it.

      •  

        So when everyone is screaming that no one has stock, and no one is matching price for a one piece special why is this a deal? Why are the mods not acting and taking it off?

        • +2 votes

          He has included a photo of the receipt. Get off your soapbox. It deserves to be here.

  •  

    Was looking for a very cheap D3100 or a reasonably priced D5100.

    This is definitely worth the purchase - just wondering if its going to be available at the Big W in Melbourne CBD.

    Uploading the copy of the receipt would be really really helpful for price matching purposes!!

  •  

    We're camera shopping at the moment, went to our local BigW yesterday and not a camera in sight! sigh! A good find, Kluger.

  •  

    Hi Geewhizz,sorry that your local bigw have none.pls try the following link and type your postcode in then you will know which store have them in stock surrounding your area and you can call them before u go so save petrol and time.good luck.regards .http://www.bigw.com.au/bigw/search/bigw_search_results.jsp

    •  

      Thanks Kluger. The next closest BigW is over 100k's away. It's no biggie anyway - went to Joyce Mayne yesterday and the sales person quietly let us know they were having 25 per cent off their cameras today, so a nice Lumix followed me home instead. :)

      Sadly it's the only store with the sale - would have been a nice first bargain post.

  •  

    Bummer. $998 at Cumberland Park SA. Thanks anyway!

  • +1 vote

    Thanks for the reciept.

    I tried my local store in Mt Hutton NSW. No deal. They had it for $998 but they wouldn't price match with a Melbourne Store.

    •  

      I called altona meadows and they confirmed the $777. But they weren't able to confirm if is is a local or Oz wide price.

      But JbHi has the same kit for $888 today. I've just called and they are going to see about price matching altona, waiting on a call back from the sales person to confirm.

  •  

    Just Rang up the Altona Meadows shop, which is mentioned in the receipt. They are out of stock and the lady asked me to call back on Monday to check if they are expecting more stock at this price.

    Bummer, because I just live meters from this shop :-( Should have gone there earlier :-)

    Will update if the stock comes back here again, I am guessing other people won't do a price match if Big W don't have stock but still worth a try elsewhere.

    Very Good deal mate, THanks for posting and for posting the receipt

  •  

    Thanks so much for the receipt Kluger, now the price matching hunt begins! :)

  •  

    Maybe mods should update this deal to say Sold out as it is no more in stock unfortunately

  •  

    Just called Parkmore store who have stock of the camera, however they are not willing to pricematch as Altona is now out of stock :( Thought it would be different considering they are the same store!

    So basically one person in the country gets a markdown from a store and rest of us have to acknowledge it as a deal! Doesn't meet logic.

      Posting one offs or the like are not "bargains", but they love em here for some reason.
      I have found many red hot one off's but would not abuse this site by posting them.
      The $2 ladder recently was a classic example.

  •  

    Thankyou Kluger for posting the bargain as well as the receipt. :)

    I'll see if I can price match it at JB this afternoon.

    Thank you Kluger…
    Just got one from Altona Meadows….only couple more left…..

  •  

    Once again thank you Kluger, I was able to get another Big W to match and purchase the camera kit at $777 thanks to your receipt! This is definitely a great deal, and thanks to Kluger it was not just a one off which we may have never found out about :). Haters gonna hate, Cheers mate!

  •  

    in case you really want this but cant get a price match, JB has a 10% of Cameras sale this weekend and that brings the price of these down to $888.30

    http://www.jbhifionline.com.au/digital-cameras/digital-camer...

  •  

    JB has 10% off all cameras until tomorrow. You can get it for $800, and ask them to chuck in a free case/ SD card.

    edit: apparently $888 is already with the 10% discount. =S

  •  

    Just got this camera from Big W Melbourne cbd for $777!

    Thanks for the great post

    •  

      Is this the QV store? I called up, and they denied they sold a set for this price :(

      •  

        Yes, this was the QV store yesterday at around 3pm.

        The girl in the digital photo center called up the Altona shop, then she confirmed with 2 of her managers before she was able to offer me the camera at this price.

  •  

    Awesome… Was looking at a camera and this came up last night.
    Called Geelong this morning. $998, tried Werribee, $998. Called Altona Meadows, at about 8.30, one left and she put it aside. Very Very Impressed. Best Deal Ever! For me!

  •  

    I asked at Big W Box Hill (VIC) and they said this price is from a sale a couple weeks ago.
    It explains why the OP managed to get it while others haven't, as that Big W may have delayed updates to their system.

    Nonetheless, it's an excellent deal, and I'm trying to find a place to get it for that price!
    And congratulations to those who managed to pick it up for that price!

  •  

    Anybody in Perth got a price match? Please upload a receipt if you were successful. We dont get much bargains in the 'Desert'. Lol

    • +2 votes

      Big W in Mirrabooka, Perth have said that they can't match the Altona Meadows price. The reason they gave (after calling the Altona Meadows store) was that it was a special price and price matched to local competition. "Local comp" didn't sell it that cheap, hence they couldn't give the same deal.

      So I gave up on them and went to a local JB HiFi with the OP's receipt. Bingo :)

      Thanks again Kluger

      •  

        Wow! Thank you aromatase for the info. I went to Harvey Norman and they have refused it! Any chance of posting your receipts? Thanks in advance!

  •  

    Thank you, kluger for the news…. was so excited today!!! Keep posting!!!

    You've been a member for over 10 months and you act shocked and sensitive when people ask for the receipt? You know what to expect here.

    Good deal nevertheless for those that can find it.

  •  

    Great price, thank you!

    Who would carry $800 cash these days???

  •  

    Has the receipt been posted? I also went to Box Hill, and they said that it was a managers special, they wouldn't do the same deal.

    I'm keen as mustard to try and get this

  •  

    Called up a Big W, and they said they "checked with Altona Meadows and Melbourne CBD Big W" and that they have never sold the camera kit for $777.

    Wish I knew where to go to get this great deal!

  •  

    If they sell it, you're likely to come close to the price this weekend in the Harvey Norman sale, surely?

  • +2 votes

    alright, so I went to JB Hi Fi, Chatswood, showed a print out of Kluger's receipt and voila JB said they would price match! I sure was one happy customer. The only chink, in the heat of the moment I bought a 8GB Sandisk SDHC card (30 MB/sec), for 59$. I am a bit of a rookie when it comes to photography, people suggest 15 MB/sec is good enough. I plan to return the card and goto Target instead to buy a 35$, 15MB/sec card.

    •  

      LUCKY!

      Also would be good to price match on Wednesday (at JB), and get the 15% off. ;)Is that possible? :S

      Post receipt please?

    •  

      Does JB sell this camera with a twin lens package? I thought it comes only with a single lens.

  • +2 votes

    I am not able to post the full receipt as it has a few of my CC details on it, but you can see details of the store & price on the following image for those who requested it:

    http://upload.ozbargain.com/2011/07/24/6377_rct.jpg

    Hope this helps!

  •  

    wow, what an awesome deal - bought this for someone else back in Jan for $1000, terrific little camera.

  •  

    is it still available?? u reckon?

  •  

    Anyone ?

    •  

      no, why didnt you just buy it from jb when they had the 15% off night the other day? I already posted about it above. and most people on the jb thread said they managed to get it down closer to the bigw price anyway on that night!
