So i finished with doing research and decided to buy DSC-HX30V, but then i found out that it's not sold anywhere in Sweden.
I thought maybe i can import it from Germany or UK instead, but nope, it's not sold in Germany or UK either.
Only HX20 can be found in stores.

What is going on?? I thought the HX30 got released many months ago??
Is the HX30 a non-existant model or what?

You can click on the DigitalRev advertisement at the top of the Cameralabs website and search for it, I found it there so I don't think you should have any major issues. By the way, DigitalRev has free shipping internationally :D

That's weird.. usually when you import something from USA the shipping fee is HUGE, and on top of that you get massive customs tax, so i didn't even bother searching for it in american stores..
Why don't digitalrev.com have any of that? Maybe they don't inform you that you might get a massive customs fee? Hm and then i also have to buy a power socket adapter..

Oh.. they say this in their site: "No Import Tax/Duty to Pay: Any import tax/duty charged will be billed directly us."

Seems to be a really good store.
I canceled my HX20 order and ordered HX30 from digitalrev instead.
Thanks for the tip, good thing that i started a thread.

That's why I always consider buying from them, usually here in Mexico, huge import taxes have to be paid for everything, these taxes usually cost more than the product itself. Oh and by the way...

As far as I'm concerned, you should be able to order the camera with the right socket, but I'm really not sure, if anybody knows, fell free to inform us :)

Man it's taking ages for them to dispatch it, so far it has taken 38 hours. When it's in stock they say it should dispatch within 24 hours.

Did you check if it was in stock? I suppose it was, but I'm just checking.
If it was in stock and DigitalRev hasn't dispatched it yet, try contacting them and ask them what's going on, I'm sure they'll answer :)
