    I just ordered a new Canon G25 online and its came with a 2 pin EU plug and the instructions are non English..

    Will this camcorder be ok, or should I sent it back, is this legal selling them in the UK?

    If it's not a UK model, then it may be difficult, if you have any warranty claims. Most manufacturers will not repair or replace faulty items that are not the official version for that country.

    Some folk take the chance with these 'grey' imports --others prefer the security of purchasing the correct UK model.

    These 'grey' imports are usually cheaper of course.....
