Title: Henry's 2 month new camera warranty huge price drop difference
Post by: winslix on January 27, 2013, 07:49:50 PM
On a Canon 60D:
P26k = henry's 2 month warranty with no Canon 3 yr warranty
P42K = Canons own 3 yr warranty only

Both units are new. How is this done? Doesnt it all new Canon should come with an included 3 year warranty? Its hard to ignore the huge price gap. Is there something fishy here that I don't know about? Please help as I am confused deciding. I hope they have the same deal with lenses but I want to find out first the mystery behind this. Please advise. Thanks.

The cheaper one is probably a grey unit. Canon Phil. will not honor the warranty.

though the price gap is definitely huge, i would still go for buying a canon unit with the 3 year warranty so to have that peace of mind.

been reading a lot of negative feedback with henry's and i wouldn't want to hassle myself in calling up an establishment, asking for an update, going back and forth to their store in case i encounter a problem with my unit.

or if the P42k is not within my budget, i would probably scout for another model.

just my 2 cents  ;)

^100% agree... thats why instead of having doubts / second guessing what to do with warranty claims... id suggest you scout other models...  maybe a different brand perhaps? NIKON or Fuji?

or you can do the next best thing when it comes to getting the best warranty... Buy it from Mang Ramon  ;D  His warranty is better than any if not all the other stores in Hidalgo... Sometime even better than the manufacturer itself... (but that when you are one of his  SUKI BUYER ehem like my self when i was into DSLRS...  ;D ) Now im very content with FUJI X10....   I LOVE FUJI COLORS!!!!!  ;D

You can almost buy 2 of the 2mos warranty units for the price of the CMP warranty unit

It is really a 60D. Not a newbie myself but what is a "gray unit"? 60D is not bad for a backup body for cheap.

Post by: gloval on January 28, 2013, 05:48:21 PM
well if that's the price then you really have to test everything out. kasi if problems occur after two months then it will be an expensive journey to CSC. remember that they charge higher now for gray units.

btw gray units are units that didn't come from the local distributor. pareho lang 60d yan pero yung isa merong peace of mind. hahahaha

Please check again. I just called up henry's and they currently don't have 60D. It's very unlikely for an authorized canon re-seller to carry a CMP and a grey unit at the same time.

Post by: coffeebugg on January 28, 2013, 06:01:24 PM
Di kaya 600D yung nasabing 26K? Kahit siguro grey market na 60D di ganyan kamura.

I was there 2 days ago and they have it. I wasn't even on the market for it and was just actually browsing. They wrote the price down for me on a small piece of paper, 26K for 2 months store warranty, 42K canon 3 yr warranty but no store warranty. Both units are new. That is why I was shocked as I have no clue what they meant. But the point is, I am trying to find out the difference. Thanks for the replies, now I have an idea what the deal is. I am still unclear about what a "gray unit" is though. In response to photobong, they do carry both "gray" and CMP.

grey unit =  parallel import :o :o :o

ibig sabihin, sariling pasok ::)

malakas kasi ang piso now, usually around pasko at pagkatapos dahil sa mga padala ng OFW ::) then babagsak uli yan ::)

sana tumaas uli yun yen para lumaki uli yun sweldo ko ;)

@coffebug, the price is so low you also thought it was a 600D, right?
Title: Re: Henry's 2 month new camera warranty huge price drop difference
Post by: jesusluison on January 28, 2013, 07:33:51 PM
abay kung 26k nga yan canon 60D kay henry at GREY UNIT... better inquire sa ibnang store sa hidalgo... 24K ... WATSONS.. then kay MANG RAMON

Im sure MANG RAMON will be able to give you a similar price qoute but with his famous  "PAG MAY SIRA... BALIK MO AGAD... DALA MO RESIBO HA?"   which would normally be longer than 2 months... 1year store warranty yan sa mga DSLR

KAY MANG RAMON KA NA LANG BUMILI PARA SIGURADO  ;D ;D ;D

This is from Henry's here in PiPho:
Fuji X100
PRICE: ---- P54,900 (CASH PRICE) - (1YEAR WARRANTY)
PRICE: ----- P33,500 (CASH PRICE) - 2MONTHS WARRANTY (NO FREEBIES)

So yeah his price for 2 months warranty is legit.
you just have to thoroughly check your item before leaving.

having said that. i also vote for Watsons and Mayers :D

ngek.... malamang mali yung info ng sales rep ng henrys... baka ang nabigay at nagkamali sa 60D price eh yun pala price pang 600D...

Please confirm at henrys ... "AR U SYURE???  IS DAT SO??? HMMM OK OK... I COME BACK" ;D ;D ;D

kasi sobrang layo compared sa info posted by brother BBC.

Para sure... Puntahan at mag tanong kay MANG RAMON... "MANG RAMON... SER... MAGKANO PO ang CANON 60D? ... KASI DYAN SA KAPITBAHAY NYO EH 26K daw???" Sabay ngiti  ;D ;D ;D

To all those posting if the price is for a 600D, you are all wrong. I am 100% sure so lets just drop the idea that the price is for the 600D para di na malito. @big blue cheese, I think we are on the same boat here. Saan ang store ni Mang Ramon @jesusluison? I need to check him out.
Title: Re: Henry's 2 month new camera warranty huge price drop difference
Post by: jesusluison on January 29, 2013, 07:25:07 AM
MANG RAMON is the famous store owner of MEYERS in HIDALGO, QUIAPO AREA... ;D ;D ;D

His store is is beside HENRYS and WATSONS.... Just Google it online for location and directions and his contact number...

Sana nga totoong 26k yang 60D... kasi i remember that unit before was selling for about 50k+ about 2~3 years ago...  ang laki ng price drop if its true...

Read the other thread here in PIPHO... EXPERIENCES @ MEYERS to know more about the FAMOUS/INFAMOUS MANG RAMON ;D ;D ;D

Tama jesusluison, its too cheap, im contemplating it for a back up body. probably pag ganitong kamura, instinct says baka may lalabas na 70D, perhaps? Ill check out Mang Ramon, baka beat pa nya ang price na 26k, hehe. Wala pa naman ako plan bumili pero temptation is knocking on the door.

AH ok... If you are just inquiring and have no plans to buy yet... wag ka muna pumunta ka MANG RAMON... Baka Ma BULYAWAN KA (if you are a pesky customer with many questions but is not buying/undecided or just canvassing)

Customer :  "AH SER...  MAGKANO CANON 60d NGAYON?"

Mang Ramon :  " CANON 60D? meron Tayo... Bigay ko sa yo 25.5K... Mura na yan"

Customer :  " Talaga SER? ANO KASAMA? MAY FREE ITEMS BA LIKE SD CARD, BLOWER, NECK STRAP, ETC...?" (Madami tanong pa... SPECS etc )

Mang RAMON : " WALA  KASAMA FREE ITEM... BODY LANG...MURA NA YAN..."

---- 5 ~ 10 minutes pass as customer is undecided if he will buy or not ---- (BAD IDEA  :-X :-X :-X )

Customer : " HMMM OK OK SER... I COME BACK...."

MANG RAMON : " HMMMP.. SIGE... (but deep inside ...WAG KA NA BALIK HA...BUSET  ;D )"  ;D ;D ;D


------ 30 minutes later customer comes back to MANG RAMON .... already decided to buy already (kasi nakapag canvas sa iba - WATSONS HENRYS 24K etc... PINAKA MURA KA MANG RAMON  ;D ) -----


CUSTOMER :  " SER KUNIN KO NA YUNG CANON 60D... LAST PRICE NA PO BA YUN (Knowing that the other store have qouted a higher price than MANG RAMON).."

MANG RAMON : ".... HA? (looking surprised / annoyed) ... AY NAKU... MAY MAYARI NA... LAST UNIT NA YUN KANINA... SA IBA KA NA LANG KUMUHA... (SABAY BUGA NG USOK / YOSI)"


Moral of the story? ---- CANVAS MUNA SA IBA TO KNOW THE PRICE... THEN IF SURE BUYER AT BIBILI NA ... PUNTA KA MANG RAMON... ASK PRICE/WARRANTY... PAY MANG RAMON... ;D ;D ;D ;D  PARA HAPPY ENDING with you DSLR  ;D ;D ;D

Post by: jesusluison on January 29, 2013, 09:03:52 AM
Dapat pag sure buyer na ... saka pumunta kay MANG RAMON...

Kasi pag ikaw lang ang customer sa shop nya at umaga pa (maybe 1030am) tapos puro inquire / canvass... madami tanong pero hindi naman bibili...

hay naku... BE READY TO GET "RAMON"IZED   ;D ;D ;D

not a very pleasant feeling  ;D ;D ;D

oo, dont worry im not that type na super low baller. di akomatanong,kahit nga minsan pati box di ko kinukuha at itatapon ko din naman yun.

sa tapat ng BDO lang yung shop nya. bagong lagay ng Canon EOS ang signage nya.

around 2pm ka pumunta kina Mang Ramon para siguradong wala gaanong tao. may kasama pang review kung ano ang magandang bilhin ("mas maganda ang 85mm f1.8d kesa sa G. mas mura pa. 3 na lang stock ko nyan yung G ang tagal gumalaw"). 90% ng gamit ko kay Mang Ramon ko binili. screw Henry's. pag magpapapalit ka na ng item ang style nila is "last stock na yan e".

pag umaga, siguradong mas mura kasi buena mano :o :o :o

wag mo lang aalatin...uuwi kang malungkot.

that 60D for 26k with only 2 months warranty doesn't sound too strange.

if you check online stores, the grey unit 60D sells for around 28k with a 1-year store warranty.  of course, big difference pa rin from the retail unit (selling for 42k).
