Ok I've been looking at a couple of camcorders, contemplating buying one to film all sorts of shenanigans (as seems to be the fashion amongst the discerning squaddy) and some important family events coming up. I notice that prices in the states seem to match uk prices $ for Â£, ie a camera may be $600 in the states and Â£600 here - meaning a considerable markup on UK prices, some 60% increase or so. Does anyone have any experience of importing electronics from the US? I'm more concerned about the power or firmware differences than customs fees (Â£20 to Â£50 aint much on potential savings). Is it likely to blow up in my face if I try charging it off a uk power supply? Been looking at the panasonic range of 3CCD cameras, seem to be best value for money.
