Hello everyone. I'm interested in purchasing a camera at SMS Productions, based in Chicago. Since I live in California and can't visit their facility, I was wondering if anyone out there has ever dealt with them and what experiences they've had with them. Just want to make sure they're legit before I blow a few thousand dollars. Thanks!

They are legit. I dealt with them from time to time when I used to live in Chicago. What camera are you buying from them?

They are legite and reponsible. I've known them for 20 years. It's a family owned business and they aren't going to disappear.
