Default Fuji HS and Newegg Issues

I was told my camera would be shipped out today from newegg since I pre-ordered it. Then about 15 minutes ago got an e-mail saying my order can not be filled because the item is out of stock and it will be at 4 to 6 weeks before they enough to fill the pre-orders. I am going to call in AM and cancel order and try to order from bhphotovideo

Did anyone who ordered from newegg get it shipped today

That does not sound good, Dave-

The bright side is that B&H seems to have a good inventory and they are offering 3 day UPS shipping for $11.

Update via another e-mail I just received dated 04-15-10 at 4:30pm PT (pacific time USA)..... our first shipment of cameras should be in by the close of Monday. They will be processed based on the order in which the pre-orders were placed. We are sorry but becausewe got 3x the number of pre orders were were expecting some orders will not be able to be filled at this time. You will find out by close of business Tuesday if your order will be shipped or if you are still on pre-order/back order status. After duscussion with Fuji we believe all pre orders can be filled within 4 weeks........

I went back and checked and the first e-mail I got slightly eariler was dated 04-15-10 2:30pm PT.

I jumped ship and have ordered from bhphotovideo.com which has several more cameras in stock as of 10:15am Friday morning. Camera should be here Tuesday morning. They have an $11 3 day ship that looks good, that is what I used. Sure newegg.com had free shipping and then $2.99 3 days ship, but if they can't get the cameras in to ship out then whats the use.

I guess when they had the earthquake in Mexico recently it messed up their shipping port because all their stuff comes through San Deigo and they are having trouble getting things in on time across the board.

I ordered mine on Thursday evening from B&H and received notification along with a tracking number on Friday morning that it has shipped. As previously stated, B&H is shipping UPS three day delivery for $11.

Hey I just wanted to set the record straight and say that I am not slamming newegg.com. This is the first real time I have really had problems with them and have been using them off and on (along with bhphotovideo) since 2005. Normally they are very accurate and fast to ship.

I agree, Dave-

I like Newegg. However, getting Fuji to supply HS-10 inventory seems to have become something of a struggle. So I understand that you are not blaming Newegg per se.

Have a great weekend.
