Buy Sony Camera Online !EXCLUSIVE!
Sokolowski experienced significant difficulties both from not having the camera he ordered and in trying to remedy the situation, despite speaking to Police Scotland, DPD, Jessops and the Citizen Advice Bureau:

I bought a camera online from a reputable source, which is Jessops, and DPD was the courier. I never got the camera instead of equipment I found white powder in my parcel. The worst part of this situation is that none of the companies were willing to help nor refund me the money I lost... it was supposed to be an investment for work and take my work to the next level. I saved 1,000 over a year to buy it, and now, I have not only lost the money I spent on the camera but money from jobs I have had to cancel because it never arrived.
This is a very unfortunate incident but far from abnormal. It's likely that someone at a postal warehouse stole his gear and replaced it with powder. I had a similar situation with a race clutch for my Audi. Someone at one of the postal facilities outright stole it. Even with insurance and a tracking number, I never got my $1900 back. This is the world we live in today. No one wants to accept responsibility for poor service. You would think that his camera would have been tracked, scanned and verified before delivery.
Well there just MIGHT be a good chance that he could purchase several cameras and equipment....depending, of course, on what this mysterious 'white powder' substance is. Just maybe. IF he's careful in what he does.
I bought a RX100 VI from E-Infinity. Service and customer communication were very good. Within a few days the camera developed a fault and E-Infinity offered me an exchange or a refund without any hassle. I decided on the refund and eventually purchased from John Lewis who were more expensive but offered a 2 year manufacturer's defects warranty. I don't think you will find anyone selling this camera who include accidental damage cover without additional cost. For example, the RX100 VII is 1049 at JL from which can be deducted 100 cashback, but two years accidental damage cover will cost an additional 60.
Much has been discussed here about the pros and cons of taking out accidental damage insurance. There is no doubt that you do pay quite a lot, but if it gives you peace of mind it may well be worth it for you. My home insurance policy provides for accidental damage to items like cameras when I'm away from home. However, I do have a 250 excess. If I needed to make a claim for a full replacement of my RX10 IV following theft, loss or write-off it would probably be worthwhile paying the excess.
I bought my RX100M6 from e-Infinity. Service was good, and I didn't need to use the warrant. To my surprise, it was shipped from the next borough to me, rather than from Hong Kong! However, I could see from the mains plug supplied on the charger that the camera had been intended for the Australian market.
You have to have some kinds of insurance, but not accident repairs on cameras. Your home insurance may well already cover it, but even if not, the camera isn't expensive to replace if necessary. So I don't insure anything against breakdowns or accidents, apart the car or myself.
Incidentally, I did manage to smash my very first digital camera, when I carelessly knocked over the tripod, at home. Once it confirmed that it wasn't worth fixing, my home insurance (Direct Line) did cover the replacement cost, and even let me put it towards an upgraded model instead of getting a like-for-like replacement.
Fujifilm's X-H2 is a high-resolution stills and video camera, that sits alongside the high-speed X-H2S at the pinnacle of the company's range of X-mount APS-C mirrorless cameras. We dug into what it does and what it means.

What's the best camera for shooting sports and action? Fast continuous shooting, reliable autofocus and great battery life are just three of the most important factors. In this buying guide we've rounded-up several great cameras for shooting sports and action, and recommended the best.
Helpfully, a number of YouTubers use less expensive cameras which can still capture high-quality footage. The Sony ZV-1 is increasingly becoming a favorite among YouTube vloggers who like to walk and talk, while the original Panasonic Lumix GH5 is another more affordable model which continues to be used by several YouTubers.
Produce winning videos for your channel with one of the best YouTube cameras. Just about any camera with video-recording capabilities can let you record your clips and footage for your YouTube content. But, only an excellent camera designed to record such videos can make your workflow more seamless.
A top-notch YouTube camera can not just help you deliver excellent, high-quality content, offering a range of video resolutions and frame rates. It's also easier to handle and come with useful creative features for shooting and sharing on YouTube so you can spend less time worrying about the technical aspects and focus more on your creative process.
We've extensively tested the best cameras and best video cameras, assessing every camera based picture quality, features, usability, compatibility with accessories, and outright value. And we've applied objective criteria to select the top performers below, ensuring we've got options for every need and budget.
Our current top pick for the title of best YouTube camera is the Panasonic GH5 Mark II, a versatile, powerful camera with built-in live streaming skills and a lightweight yet rugged body. It's also one of the best 4K cameras you can buy. We also highly rate the Sony ZV-E10 for its outstanding autofocus performance compact packaging and relatively affordable price.
Like a mini version of the impressive, Netflix-approved Panasonic Lumix S1H, the Lumix S5 offers a compelling blend of 4K video skills, portability and impressive full-frame video quality, which combine to make it a fine workhorse for YouTube creators. We found its colors and dynamic range to best-in-class among hybrid cameras at this price, and even at relatively high ISOs like 6400 there's barely any noise visible or excessive image smoothing.
The Lumix S5 shoots 4K/60p 10-bit 4:2:0 video, or for those who like to color grade there's also the option of recording 4K/30p 10-Bit 4:2:2 video internally. Although there is a 30-minute limit to 10-bit video, you don't have to wait to start recording again, and we found the autofocus performance to be a big step up on previous S-series cameras. If you move around a lot when shooting YouTube videos, we'd probably still consider the Sony A7S III over the S5, but otherwise its Face- and Eye-detection are more than sticky enough for the task. The S5's standard kit lens also starts at 20mm, making it well-suited to filming clips to camera (even with a crop applied).
Manual focus has its place in filmmaking, but to keep everything as simple and straightforward as possible it pays to pick a camera with great video autofocus. Face and/or eye tracking helps if you tend to move around a lot in your videos, as the focus will adjust itself automatically to compensate.
Filming on the hoof can result in shaky, hard to watch footage. Thankfully a lot of modern cameras come with image stabilization (optical, electronic or a combination of the two) to automatically compensates for motion. Some, it should be noted, do it much better than others. Alternatively, a gimbal can stabilize pretty much any camera, at the cost of adding bulk.
