    Don't get me wrong they make one hell of a package but they are def over priced. I've priced out each package by searching for individual items all over the Internet. They are about 20-30% higher. What's your take on the subject. Why should I buy from them?

    i think when you buy from cambells you pay for the convenience instead of working aby "scouting" all over the internet to find the best deals. some people would rather just pay a little more and be done with it.

    True in some cases! I was trying to get all I could for the amount of coin I had been putting togethere for 6 Months. I prob saved around $500.00 by doing some research and selective buying. $300.00 alone on the vid cam.

    I also have noticed that Cambells is slightly higher priced. I have bought all my camera gear off other sites that bloodcrick mentioned. I even got my actual camera off Craigslist.

    I think most people assume they're getting a deal with the package. I'm glad to hear you've done the leg work tho... my next purchase will be shopped now. Thanks!

    Had a great experience with Campbells. Just bought a new AX2000 and some accessories and couldnt have been more pleased about the customer service I received. I went in person instead of ordering offline, thats probably why I had a better experience. The staff was real helpful, and the guy I particularly dealt with was great in hooking me up and getting the camera set up so I could head to the turkey woods this weekend in KY. If you ever get a chance, go to their store, talk with them, try out the equipment. Its a whole lot better then just looking around on their website. I dont mind paying the extra $$$ when the customer service is great.
