Do anyone know if this firm sell cameras sourced in Europe or sell American imports?
If they sell cameras from the USA will they not have a valid warranty?

I bought a Fuji camera from the 7 day shop for my wife last christmas it came with a Limited one year USA warranty, when the Fuji memory card I bought for with the camera failed about a month later and was replaced by the 7 day shop without any problem as I suspect the camera would be also if it failed within the guarantee period

Cheers HC

Thanks for the replies.

I notice you have sent things back, but they are not cameras.
I cannot find anything on their website about honouring a USA warranty on a camera.

I have noticed, on another thread on here, the problems that people have had with cameras bought from America. Maybe that does not apply to the Channel Islands, but it does make you think twice about buying a camera without a UK warranty.

As bjh rightly points out - and I know from personal experience over several years - 7DayShop is a first class outlet.

I don't doubt they are first class, but I can't help but think I might have problems having an American warranty honoured if anything should go wrong within the first 12 months.
The only thing I can do is to try and contact 7dayshop and find out how I stand with a camera sourced in America.
Can anyone recommend any other on line stores that sell cameras with a British or European warranty?

7DayShop would be your first port of call as the retailer.

I'm somewhat puzzled as to your worries about warranties as the Channel Islands are part of the UK.

In addition, 7DayShop regularly offers Canon models which are eligible for Canon UK's cash back offers.

7DayShop are an excellent company. If you have a problem during the warranty period you should contact them first about any item you bought, not just a camera. Compare this to many retailers who simply direct you to the manufacturer rather than fulfill their legal obligations.

I have been looking for a Lumix TZ5, but I don't know which retailers sell UK sourced cameras.
Perhaps someone who has had any dealings with a retailer who sells UK cameras could post a link?

Thanks for all the help.

I will wait for a reply from 7dayshop before marking this as resolved.

I have had a reply from 7dayshop saying that they will cover the warranty on cameras from America.
