    We will see a HS50 before xmas?

    This is getting painful. :mad:

    Has anyone heard of anything from retailers?

    They seem to be in the dark as much as the consumers in this one. I sent an email to Sony UK and no response whatsoever. Fairly typical I guess of a large company! :thumbsdow

    Sony - anyone who works for them - :lease: give us a clue!

    Benji you tease...........

    I cant frikkin beleive this, with your 12 months finance, i have to wait 2 weeks from now until you can ship - to give me chance to 'cool-off' on a finance that won't actually be taken out until i get the beaut. I will be mightily fidgity if you get stock before then, so i'll be waiting due to damnned consumer rights, and not sony messing around.

    can this government do anything right? ;)

    The demo equipment on shootandshow's web site now lists the HS50.

    Think I might pop along at the weekend ...

    I'm off down to see them for a demo on Tuesday.

    I am not sure if they do demo's at weekends but I'm down there 11am next Tuesday. Anyone fancy a meetup and a constructive review?

    I asked them to demo a Z3 but apparently they are all off for a firmware upgrade so there is nothing close to compare which is a real shame!

    Their price on the HS50 is still a shade under £1700. I have seen this for sale as low as £1470.

    I think it would be prudent to demo anything before lobbing money at anything. So a demo is welcome.
    Cheers

    The website shows that Shoot & Show will price match. I'm not sure what the terms are, but I would have thought that as they are a web retailer then they would match against the Gultronics price.

    Does anyone know if they do free pixel checks or interest free credit?

    I have raised the price with Sales at NexNix (S&S) but they appear to be standing firm on the price. This may be due to the fact that HS50's are like rocking horse ****!!

    I have seen the Gultronics their price (for a dealer) are amazing!
    Demand and price!

    Pixel checks are available dunno about 0% though, maybe get on to Ben Miller they offer that.

    Tone,
    It will be interesting to hear what you think of the hs50.
    Did nexnix give you any idea of when they are expecting stock?

    Hi

    No nothing yet - I think Sony knew what the specs of this PJ would do to quite a few enthusiasts and are drip feeding the dealers. It seems no one knows when and how many will be coming in unless someone has an update.

    What confuses me is that there have been a few deliveries and yet no one has posted anything about their thoughts!

    Cheers
