    How on earth do we even go about starting such a thing ? I know there are online petitions. Is it worth starting this? Are we a united voice, or casual forum readers? If we are not prepared to stand up to this then do we have the right to complain?

    Remember, all it takes for cameras failing to be acceptable, is for good camera operators to do nothing.

    What say YOU ?

    serious about this folks, are we going to take this or not?

    Rise up as a group and protect each other.

    It's time this nonsense stopped. If we invest in thier product we should be able to do so with confidence not trepidation.

    I'm mad as hell, I am not going to take this anymore.

    BMD should do like Apple or Sony and offer a 3 year extended warranty for $300-$500.

    But most people donít buy extended warranties. Nearly all cameras, from the UMP to EVA1 to FS7, have a 1 year manufactures warranty. If your equipment breaks outside of the warranty then youíre screwed. Iím not sure what you expect to be done.

    So we're comparing "my warranty is too short" with "police killed my brother" or "my boss raped me"? WOW

    Talk about WOW !!!

    YOU my sir have missed the point by a country mile.

    The point is campaigns like that have been very successful. That is the only point. Raise awareness like those other campaigns have....you know the ones that have been very very successful. No one intermated for one microsecond that someone was raped or shot.

    Buying a BMD camera CAN be fraught with issues and you are then left out in the cold after 12 months.....to junk a 6K camera. Thats a WOW worthy issue I think.

    IDK, maybe my comments and "read between the lines" that I was getting at was lost in translation?

    I'm in but I'm not sure what kind of traction will this have on existing owners - maybe if it gets somewhere then new owners might have a win. The downside to such a campaign is that it bigs the "camera" a bad name that now if I walked in with a BMD camera, I might not be taken seriously because I have a "junk" product. So a bit of caution in how the campaign is run will be important.

    Another option is that we should seriously consider finding a third party extended warranty company that can protect our investment for a fee. I'm going to start researching for one, starting with the one that Howie suggested.
