Fortunatly I own a 20D that is my main camera so it is not a big deal.
they only had a few black models come in, and a ton of silver models...
ohh well . I am not in that big of a hurry as long as they do not charge me untill the unit ships.
When did you order it?
I'm leaving the 13th of May.
I was an exchange student from Europe.
The prices backhome are a lot more, so I just needed it fast!
Dell promised me that, but they kept on changing the shipping date!
I will have my camera tomorrow Not from Dell
Update: Got my camera right now!
Pc Nation shipped it with their free 3day in 2 days!!
I love the camera! I'm going to shoot tonight at the presentation of Ami Vitale (For people that don't know who she is, she is a World Press photo winner, and a Canon Female PhotoJournalist Grand winner!)
Congrats! I just got my 20D today!
lots of joy in this forum.
Ordered the silver XT with 18-55mm lens kit on May 14th. The Dell website is reporting that it is also backordered. Expected ship date is noted as the end of May.
I used coupon codes from slickdeals.net to get a nice price for this baby.
base price $999
-2% (-$15.18) --> new Dell credit card account
$743.97 + $0.00 for shipping + tax
The thread title says $849 from Dell Home, but you can get below $800 pretty easily. I'm not a fan of Dell PCs, but I do love their deals on cameras and big LCD monitors.
These coupons, together, will take it down to $759:
thanks , got an xt for my wife . Money saved will go for Tamron 28-75 lense.
