86th St. Photo & Video
Beware The WORST!

If it's to good to be true, then it is! Wise words — and never wiser than for the scam artists of the millenium, 86th St. Photo & Video. My story is like others: I bought a digital camera online from them because they had a rock bottom price, but I did not succumb to high pressure sales tactics when I made the obligatory "confirmation" phone call the next day. Although promised 7-12 day delivery in their ad, I had no camera two weeks later, and my deadline for an oversea departure was looming. (I bought the camera for the trip.) When I called, they said it was on 5 weeks backorder. "From when, " I asked. "From today, " came their surly fact, I am convinced they never would have shipped me the camera. It appears that their price is too low for them to make a decent profit, if any. They apparently hope to sell high priced accessories to make up what they don't get on the my case, they wanted to sell me a rechargable battery pack with overseas power adaptor for $119, what appeared to me to be exhorbitant. Do yourself a favor — pay a little more online for the camera you want, but by all means avoid 86th St. Photo & Video.
