  • >>> bargain buy?<<<

    It's either a mistake in pricing, or the bargain of the year; either way, I've just pulled the trigger on one. For 85 the worst thing that can happen is they refund it......

    I always did fancy one, but the price put me off.....

    XZ-1 on eBay.com

    You and 499 others, all sold now. I hope it works out OK.
    You did use Paypal didn't you?

      Oh yes, of course.....

      All sold out when you posted means they sold over 200 of them in around 15 minutes!!

          Yes, but even still....... this thing was selling for about 350 the last time I looked at it, and that wasn't too long ago!

            I have seen it well below 300 but a great price all the same - wish I'd seen it!

              Looks like a great buy and the sellers feedback is excellent.

              With any luck it will slip through Customs as they seem far less bothered about Far East imports than they do with USA ones (always seem to get caught for duty and vat on them).

              Excellent spot; well done.

                  Yup, it was an error as I suspected - should have been $430 not $130.

                  They've refunded and sent an 8Gb SD card by way of apology!

                  Some day I'll find a true bargain, but just not today.....

                    Free 8Gb card sounds like a bargain to me!

                      You do realise it's an Australian version and the images will be upside down
