    Hi Tom; doesn't look all that cheap to me but we've had a site based in Russia masqerading as an English site with an online number and stolen identity.

    This one was so good it fooled me after numerous checks and it was only the telephone exchange code that made me suspicious;(020 3239 was a code for my London online number) untill somebody from the highly reputable company whose identity was hijacked said it wasn't them.

    Personally I would go with who I know or use Paypal; bearing in mind Paypal only insure goods from top traders if at all in Australia.

    Hope somebody closer can help and welcome to the site.

    If in doubt don’t.
    It might cost more from a well known reputable retailer, but the peace of mind and the customer service could be worth the extra.

    The server appears to be located in Hong Kong.
    Nothing to worry about as from my experience, that's pretty common in the Land of Oz.
    The site belongs to a Mr Steve O'Bryan who also owns the site http://www.ryda.com.au/

    That's no proof whatsoever, but I think it appears legit.

    hi Tom,

    Ryda is everything the web site says they are -a reputable company that has been around almost as long as I can remember. They were a leading company in car audio for many years. I think you would be quite safe dealing with them.

    HI all. Ryda exists in Parramatta (suburb of Sydney). I've bought my humble camera and lenses through them about 18 months ago. I had done alot of looking around before I bought, and they were well priced at that time. They offered good customer service (I'm not associated with the in any way) and I would buy through them again. I don't, however, know about NoFrillsCameras. Not sure if this helps. Kim
