    Default CT Reviews F828: Available now??

    Hi people,
    Today I saw a review article of F828 on Computer Times. According to the report, it retails at $1799 and is 'available from authorised Sony dealers'. Does that mean it's already on sale NOW... NOW??!

    Just finished scrounging around and ordered 3 units but can only collect on Friday evening.
    Heard from kaki in Sony (dunno true or not) that they only brought about 100 units - so better get out quick and snatch them from the shelves.
    Btw, Del_CtrlnoAlt - you collect your 828 liao right? How is it?

    I also saw the NEWS. It should have, if you really love this cam. I am still trying the Night shots without tripod. Tips here. Used White B, NO AUTO. Or u may try using AW SIGN.

    Default I found the F828 at $16xx

    Hi people!! Long story first. I was shopping around Sim Lim this afternoon and saw a few shops displaying the F828 on the shelves. But thinking that they probably did not have the stock, I went in to one of the electrical shops on the 2nd floor (opposite AP) and asked for the price skeptically. I was pleased when the guy said it is available and costs $1700. I left and went to AP thinking that maybe they have stock, but the boss said no. I told him that a shop quoted me $1700, he said good buy, since many shops outside are selling $1799. But he told me if I can wait, he definitely sell cheaper by $50.

    So I before I left for Sim Lim, I decided to drop by another shop near the pedestrian traffic light crossing towards OG. There is this new Audio House branch there (used to be a VCD and handphone accessories shop). I walked in and waited for a damn long time coz no one is free to serve. Finally, I checked out the sales guy for the F828. And without bargaining, he quoted me $16xx. Great price!! I bought it without even checking the camera (fortunately in great condition)!!

    So much for the long story. For you guys out there, head for the shop quick and get your PRECIOUS!!! (Is it sold out already?)

    I won't bore you guys on my first-hand experience in using the cam. I'll do that on another forum thread once I get it fully charged.

    Of course it's not true, how can you have a credit limit of 1799 only???

    mine bought at west mall, just discovered one problem, they spell my surname wrongly in the receipt..later got to go down and ask them to correct it, otherwise my extended warranty will have problems claiming.....

    as for credit limit, maybe thay guy used the card elsewhere and so exceeded credit limit lor......eg X + 1799 > 5000 so exceeded
