    "View Camera Store" ... ? ...

    Iīve read several times about a "View Camera Store".

    www.viewcamerastore.com is nothing but a DEMO installation of the oscommerce project. Itīs not a real shop.

    So what are people talking about, when they say the "View Camera Store" ??? Where do I find it?

    Thatīs what I mean. This is NOT a real store.

    Read this written on the site:

    "Dies ist die Standardinstallation des osCommerce Projektes. Alle dargestellten Produkte dienen zur Demonstration der Funktionsweise. Wenn Sie Produkte bestellen, so werden diese weder ausgeliefert, noch in Rechnung gestellt."

    means (with my poor english):

    "this is a standard installation of the oscommerce project. all products are only for demonstration purposes. if you order products, they will NOT be shipped, nor will they be charged"

    So ...

    Ah, now set the language to english in the "store" and voilá:

    It seems to be a real working store in the US (but itīs obviously not for European users or for german speaking customers at least ...)

    You US guys know, that you are living in LF paradise?

    Rainer,
    I do not understand what you mean. I have bought several items at View Camera store during the last 2 years and I have received the order in France without any problem.

    Here in the USofA The View Camera Store is in Fountain Hills, Az. Tel: 480-767-7105.
    It's run by Fred Newman L/F & ULF. A honest man to deal with.

    The View Camera Store is not a shop with a store front, sales people, etc. It is a mail order business being run out of Fred Newman's home. E-commerce websites on the internet can create the illusion of almost anything.

    Fred sells items, such as the "Beyond the Zone System" products, which cannot be obtained anywhere else. He is a direct K.B.Canham dealer. Since he is located very close to Canham's new factory, he can obtain their products very quickly. He is friendly and helpful on the phone.

    Eugene,

    I know of course itīs "only" a mailorder business and I understand now that it is a real existing business in the US.

    But if you log on in Austria (likely also in Germany) you will see the german version of this site with the text mentioned above ("this is a standard installation of the oscommerce project. all products are only for demonstration purposes. if you order products, they will NOT be shipped, nor will they be charged").

    That's likely a consequence of Fred Newman using off-the-shelf software and not understanding all the ramifications. Makes me glad we've got this forum with dedicated, straightforward design!

    "this is a standard installation of the oscommerce project. all products are only for demonstration purposes. if you order products, they will NOT be shipped, nor will they be charged" is, I believe, standard text with the oscommerce software--he just didn't change it for the German version.

    See their online demo at http://www.oscommerce.com/osCommerce22ms2/ which has similiar language.
