Save $15 (When You Spend over $100) at Digital World International Digital Cameras

SPRING11

Was looking for cheap DSLRs and stumbled upon these guys. Mind you I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but there's a wide range of lenses and cameras, at pretty cheap prices. For those cameras and lenses listed at Kogan (see previous post: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/55250), they're around the same price. (maybe cheaper with this coupon… shipping seems a bit expensive though)

If you're concerned you could run a few background checks on them. But you can pay by payal…

Have a look around; it doesn't hurt!

Thanks and good night :)

    Good and professional business yet, I've tried it my self.

  •  

    DWI always have that deal, although the code varies. Just hover during the checkout phase and they always pop up a box offering a discount.

  •  

    Shipping is always the deal killer for smaller items at DWI.

    Just to let everybody know. These are grey imported models from overseas, so no local manufacturer warranty. The warranty they provide is usually send back to them. As warranty is handled by there local agent.

    •  

      They test the product before delivery so there shouldn't be any need for warranty.

      "The warranty they provide is usually send back to them" how do you deal with local warranty?

        I doubt it…

        Maybe the sell [some] previously opened product boxes…
        could be re-packed displays, demo's or maybe evev returns.

        I like to be the one who opens the box first.

          They sent me a "pristine" brand new camera, the lcd screen still had the protective plastic film.
          The camera, its box and all included accessories looked "brand new", no any finger prints on it, in addition they included a "free" brand camera case (value $20) to attach to my belt.

          I didn't use the camera for I think at least 2 months and surprise the battery was still fully charged as when I used it last time.

          Ricoh CX4, I spend nearly "half" the price that local ripping off shops charge for it.
          I'm very very happy regarding the camera and DWI as well.

          You negged this deal because of "maybe", you must be trolling.

    I've bought 2 lenses from them. They're a reputable online grey-stock store. However, from Whirlpool forum, there seems to be slightly delay in claiming a store warranty.

      It is shipping from HK. But yeah, like every HK exporter they play the hide-some-item-cost-in-the-shipping game.

      • +1 vote

        Most web-based HK grey exporters charge this much and more for freight when dealing with this sort of goods because they send it by air-courier (i.e. Fedex or DHL) which costs them this much. Thus they are often only worth going with (a) if total price incl freight is competitive; and (b) when they have a good rep on whirlpool.net.au for warranty.

        It is also worth checking on eBay as many of the also run eBay shops where total cost incl freight may be cheaper - but check if still using air-courier service. (NB on eBay search Buy-it-now with International checked and sorted for price plus postage to your postcode.)

          They don't ship free, they build the shipping cost into the item price instead of hiding some of the item price in the shipping price. What does it matter? All I care about is the total price I have to pay and the quality of the service the seller can provide.

      +$40 shupping (!) EXCESSIVE!!!
      -$16 fake "discount"

      etc

      None of that is particularly relevant……. look to the total cost….. then decide if it's a bargain or not

        agree. just take a look at some prime lenses. its almost half from local prices, even after you factor in shipping. the price of camera gears in australia is just unbelievable.

          I would argue that "M" and "781145" are fake accounts, they logged in just to neg this deal justifying it with non-sense argumentation also by using too many uppercase letters.

          I wasn't arguing about the numbers of posts also please show me where on OzBargain exists any rule about the minimum post number.

          Also check better the numbers because I thing that maths is not your best.

          You could be on to something here - looks like they're both New Zillund:
          IVI: shupping; and 781145: warrenty

          However, IVI (not "M") has a substantial history so clearly not fake. 781145 has limited history - however in at least two items voted positive on items that IVI has no vote for - therefore it's not likely that 781145 is a fake account of IVI's, leaving your allegation fairly baseless or justified "with non-sense (sic) argumentation" …….!!??

          also by using too many uppercase letters.

          781145 only capitalised his first letter - as did you!

          I wasn't arguing about the numbers of posts also please show me where on OzBargain exists any rule about the minimum post number.

          Also check better the numbers because I thing that maths is not your best.

          No need for maths - OzB provides a count on number of bargain posts: IVI is currently listed with 12, and - whilst you have a number of forum posts - you have zero bargain posts!!

          Oh and, by the way, I'm a fake account for Scotty.

          IVI has posted 12 deals…..
          dealhunt has posted 0….
          which bit don't you understand?

    Have used these guys to buy a few lenses before. No issues with the lenses and nice and fast shipping and cheap prices.

    Probably save slightly more by going 1/2 price shipping (particularly if you are buying a few items) with code PAYPALOCT11

    •  

      Excellent - and almost certainly better than the $15 off.

      I'd seen this earlier and had been looking for it but couldn't remember where I had read it. Was it in an email from PayPal???

      •  

        Not sure. I saw it on Whirlpool.

        For my purposes (bought two lenses) I saved $27 with the 1/2 price shipping code vs the $15 off over $99 code…

  •  

    I appreciate all this discussion, but yeah the price is really good compared to local prices. If you went to a local store, the price would almost be more than double that. Honestly, when you have grey imports from HK, it'll obviously be cheaper. I mean the lenses are made in asia anyway…

    Thanks a lot :)

    FYI, for Nikon users, the warranty for lens are worldwide/international but NOT the body.
    If you buy lens from overseas, make sure you keep the receipt and warranty card (more so the receipt).
    So, if you are back in Australia, your lens is still covered under the Nikon warranty disregards grey or not grey. This is what the Nikon authorised camera repair store told me when i send my lens for back focusing issue.

    •  

      Good point and true in theory - however a few caveats:-
      - This applies to lenses sold as stand alone items - i.e. does not cover lenses sold as part of a kit with a camera body - aka "white-box" lenses because they come in a plain white carboard box with no manufacturer logos and print on it - usually because the lens left the manufacturer inside white-box that was inside of a larger glossy-print box that included the camera body. (This is somewhat similar to OEM packaging vs retail packaging on computer parts.)
      - If relying on this for warranty then double-check that your retailer is supplying the lens in its original retail box WITH the authentic manufacturer's international warranty certificate - which shows the lens model and serial number printed on it.
      - some eBay sellers explicitly identify that they will provide the manufacturer's international warranty certificate with the lens:-
      http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_nkw=nikon+50mm+1.8+warran...
      - I get the impression that some retailers can source retail-boxed grey-stock lenses cheaper if they don't have the manufacturer's warranty certificate with them!!! So don't presume that this certificate will be with every retailed-box lens purchase.
      - some comments in whirlpool of people saying that Nikon Australia and Canon Australia don't want to play straight in processing these "international warranties"!!
      Also FWIW note that Nikon USA supply standard 5yr warranties on their US stock - I'm not sure if Canon USA do the same.

    guys, i found that dwi ebay store sometimes selling the same lens for couple $ less, worth checking. (i did comparison last month, yes i include the shipping etc etc)

    Rumors of my being "fake" are exagerated,
    as a number of vendors would be able to
    verify, ie, if my purchases (arrising from
    OzBargain deals) were known, as they are,
    eg, on eBay…

    (Some vendors may WISH that I'd be deemed
    "fake" at time, eg, when I breathe fire
    on their non-Deal offers… :-)

    Perhaps our purchase histories should be
    known… as are our deal counts.

    BTW, my "post" count vastly exceed 12;
    my Neg count would, too, but for the
    occassional UN-Neg-ers of this place.

    Capitalisation does NOT make an OzBargain-
    member "fake"… it is intended ti take the
    place of PROFANITY, for those who express
    their emotions "sans profanity"

    It also assures that a critical "NOT" will
    register, so that the import of one's
    words will come through.


    Finally, re: "Shupping" you'll find "U"
    located BESIDE the "I" on most keyboards. :-)

    To end on a deal-relavent note, this vendor's
    "$15 odd…" is seems dim attempt to convey
    (falsely) a suggestion of "15% Off"

    If it HAD been a true 15% Off offer,
    my $250 camera would have been ordered,
    & I might not have Neg'd this offer.
