Discount Pricing: In order to take advantage of the discounted pricing advertised on OPT's website, Apogee requires payment in full at the time of order. This pre-payment is required regardless of whether the camera is readily available or there is a lead-time, since OPT is required to pay the full amount due when we place your order.
If you'd like to order this camera without prepaying, that's not a problem, but the price will be a bit higher. To find out what the price would be, you can call OPT at 1-800-483-6287 or email our internet sales department, and we will provide pricing and lead times, if any.
