"took the 3 years warranty for another 45 pounds"

I amagainst the extended warranty, because I usually sell the stuff after a year, as I always upgrade, so it is pointless IMO. Plus I think it is a con. But this is only my personal opinion - with any product.

Example: bought a freezer. Annual "peace of mind" offerexceeded original purchase price.:lol:

pr126, hope your transaction with www.cameras2u.comwent fine. Pls let me know. I recommended them to many friends.

A little unrelated to this thread, www.cameras2u.comis the best example of online retailer I have come across all categories, in all countries. This internet retailer, mostly sells digital cameras and related products.



http://www.cameras2u.com

I can not recommend them highly enough!

Why do I claim they offer a superior service?

Because they are CUSTOMER-FACING, but for real!

Do you know many customer services departments that really want to be easily reachable? http://www.cameras2u.com is one of them!


Sadly for the customer, vast majority try to hide between a web form, a standard, a customer call #, a first name only (call me back, just ask for John, everybody knows me here...)


Do you know many managing directors that really want to be easily reachable?
Managing director at http://www.cameras2u.com is one of them


The 'Contact us' page on their site speaks for itself:
http://www.cameras2u.com/info/contact/

It gives their opening times, postal address, managing director and his personal email.
He replied to me personnally twice!

His name and email are James Colclough ( [email protected])

And they chose a good courrier. They use City Link in my area (Yellow and Green vans) way better than other courriers I had to suffer.




After that, 2nd best service was:

Odd indeed maybe I just got lucky :-) I just ordered on spec well to be honest I ordered based on my total satisfaction with the S5500 I had had for a the previous month. The S9500 had those little things I wanted that the S5500 lacked like hotshoe cable release and manual Zoom. The PQ from the S5500 was perfectly fine and produced some pretty good pics for me. I've not had a great deal of time since getting the S9500 to test it but from what I've seen so far it promises much even if it does seem to require more attention in PP i.e. Photoshop.

Well now, the camera has arrived within 24 hours of ordering from http://www.cameras2u.com!

Because I just soldmy S7000, the controls are familiar, but the menusIhave to get used to. Also, I kept my 2.2 Gig Microdrive from the old camera, I am set to play with my new toy! That, and with the new Manfrotto 0550 pro tripod, let's see what this ensemble can do.

pr126-

Your S-9500 photo looks great, here is mine! Please understand won't you that I use these stuffed annimals because they never complain and they are always ready to pose for me.

I suppose it's about time I got round to showing some of my efforts on here

Links to a couple of shots from my S5500 I've got some S9500 shots which I must get round to resizing and uploading some time.

Andy-

The link takes you to nothing at all. Perhaps you should spend some time on your website/link.
