Well this doesn't happen often. But 18 months ago I bought a digital video camera that was supposed to give high quality digital stills as well. Well over time I have never got the quality and the camera died anyway.
So I contacted the manufacturer who told me the camera was never capapble of doing what the salesman told me even though I had spent $3000 on it.
So back to the store I go and see the manager for a meeting this afternoon expecting no outcome of course.
But after 1 hour of discussions and salesman getting called in and finding he knows sh1t about the cameras anyway but still sold it to me telling me everything i wanted to hear basically so ghe could get his comission, the store has agreed to replace the Camera with not 1, but 2 cameras. A new model digital stills camera worth $1500 and so I still have video also a basic model normal non digital video camera worth $900.
OK I lose $600 of my original investment but 18 months ago I could not buy the same quality equipment for that much money so I figure I am in front anyway.
Kinda rstores the faith in human nature and retailers who coulda just said get out.

I got a Kodak DC4800 with a bonus 32 meg card as well as the 16 meg card with it.

The video they gave me is a Hitachi VME 368OE

Bear in mind our prices are different to yours and it is excellent value here I assure you

LOL on the bugs and reptiles. ummmm we never see much around poisonous where I live. Ok we have spiders but they can't kill you. Well funnel webs can but with maybe 1 death a year from 19,000,000 people it isn't a big problem. Our reptiles are little pussycats except the snakes. But again you don't see many of them around even in the bush. Only have 2 deadly species and most people don't die even from their bites as it is a slow death. Lots of time to get to hospital and get fixed.
Least we haven't got bears and stuff that can chase and eat. I think death by Australian predators and snakes and stuff is about 8 to 10 a year in total.

Hey thanks Rob no I hadn't... I have now and I have receipts as a new purchase
Oh they also threw in 2 spare batteries for the video camera giving me 7.5 hours of record time.
The original camera I purchased was a Panasonic NV DS33.
