    Ok so i placed an order through amazon first thing this morning for a new Canon 50D. I put in for overnight shipping so it would get to me tomorrow. The fulfillment company is Adorama. It is now 7pm here on the east coast, and Adorama is closed. I never got a shipping notification all day today, and I'm getting irate. It'd be no big issue, but I've been without a camera for two weeks, and I finally scraped the camera money together and was able to order today for tomorrow (with deadlines for photography classes this friday.

    My only hope is that Adorama is one of those companies that sends their notifications late at night, and not at the moment of shipping...

    anyone know?

    I'm really getting quite angry.

    Why didn't you order directly from Adorama and eliminate one link in the communication chain, if you needed the camera tomorrow? :scratch:

    Plus there is the payment link in that chain. Did you use Paypal?

    I am not sure why you are so worried and ready to condemn.
    Adorama and Amazon are good companies. If it does not come tomorrow, then vent.
    The 50D is a pretty common and usually stocked camera.
    Did you read your receipt from Amazon to make sure it is being shipped?

    I ordered 6 Photography books from Amazon at 1:45am last night. I had an email at 2:47am that the books had been shipped.:cool:

    If we received your order before 6:00 pm, the item is in stock and there were no ID verfication issues, then it should have gone out when UPS picked up from us around 7 / 7:30 pm ET.

    If you have still not heard anything, please email me directly: helen.oster@adoramacamera.com and I'll see what I can find out for.

    amazon, because my prime membership makes overnight shipping only 5.00.

    i'm stressed because i'm moving out of state in two days, on top of being out of a camera, and unable to afford one til just yesterday, and I have photography classes with assignments due this friday.

    I have valid reason to be irate. When I order next day shipping i expect it next day...if i wasn't in a hurry i would have ordered it ground.

    you may have gotten a notification at 1am, but that just means they got it ready to ship..it doesn't mean it actually shipped...UPS and USPS have cut off times. That's not going out until that following day.

    There was a mixup...the page said Adorama fulfills the orders, but in actuality it was coming out of amazon's warehouse in IN. They shipped it out at the last possible minute, and it got to me this morning.

    PHEW. I HATE not knowing where my 1100.00 investment is at any given time. And it's the old skool upbringing in me that just gets furious when it doesn't seem like people are doing what they are supposed to be doing.

    Everything worked out though, and I'm happy I have my new camera...and wow what an upgrade. I can actually take on more clients now, because I have a better camera. This 50D is AWESOME.

    the remote trigger i got for it is kinda iffy though.

    I wish you'd contacted me as I suggested above; could have saved you all that worrying!
