D800 - Adorama's Preorder and Delivery (Non NPS)
May 7, 2012

Those who have received their D800 cameras from Adorama without using NPS, please post your date and time of preorder and the date of delivery.

Trying to figure out where I am in the line and I am hoping others with preorders with Adorama will get some idea also.

Thank you.

View the corespondence with Helen at Adorama. They have only received D800's for NPS orders. Since the NPS orders were so numerous and count towards Adorama's allotments, it might be some time before you get your non-NPS unit.

You may also want to enter their contest to win a free D800. If you win, you'll probably receive it before you get the one you purchased:

Thank you Megan for your reply. From HelenO's reply to your query, it appears that Adorama has caught up with all their NPS deliveries. Now it is time for them to deliver the goods to the non NPS preorderers.

Ordered a D800 on 2/7 and got confirmation email from Adorama at 8:30am pst. Logging in to my Adorama account still shows the order of 'Pending' status. Have not received the camera yet and got the generic notification this morning about it being still on backorder.

Frustrated on the long wait so I called pcnation last week as recommended by others and added my name on their waiting list. I didn't want to go this route by placing 2 orders but I'm not confident with Adorama delivering my camera anytime soon.

Will report back when my camera comes in.

Well,.... the problem is that you don't know how many allotments to Adorama have been taken up by NPS orders! For example (hypothetical): if Adorama is supposed to receive 50 D800's per month and they had 300 NPS orders, then Adorama would not receive any more D800's until the six month period has elapsed 300/50. This seems to be the case as Amazon, BestBuy, etc have been fulfilling non-NPS orders. They did have a D800 to offer as a contest prize. That one was probably meant to go to you!

Just got an email (3:30pm pst) from my Centurion card that Adorama has charged me for the D800, but weird that they made 2 charges $2949.99 and $50.00. Status on their online account still shows 'Pending' status so I called in and spoke to a rep who confirmed that my order has shipped and will receive a tracking number shortly! Will update if I get a tracking number.

Hope others are hearing the same good news from Adorama.

That's great news! When did you place your order?

From HelenO's posting, it looks like Adorama is caught up with all their NPS pre-orders. I hope Nikon uses this release as a lesson and makes an amendment to their NPS by-laws, banning flipping/scalping.

However, I'm not clear whether, if an NPS member were to contact Nikon NOW & request a unit from Adorama's allocation, whether that would be placed ahead of our non-NPS member customers who placed orders already.

My understanding is that prize will NOT be sent 'til all orders already placed have been distributed

This is the best news I've heard in quite some time! The fact that non-NPS orders are starting to ship makes me hopeful. I'm headed to Paris and London next week and REALLY wanted to take the D800 with me. I have a D700, so I'm not in bad shape if it doesn't come, but being able to spot scratches on the Eiffel Tower from the Arc de Triomphe is intriguing!

I received my D800 tracking number from Adorama at 10pm EDT last night. I placed my order the morning of 2/7. It's currently out for delivery.

Just got an email that my D800E has shipped from Adorama. I imagine I was at the very top of their non-NPS list because I was on the phone at exactly 09:00:00 EST on 2/7 and was answered withing 15 seconds of that. Curiously, my credit card charge was $3249.95 instead of $3299.95. $50 bonus for not cancelling? I sure hope an 800E arrives tomorrow instead of an 800 since I already have one of those I snagged at Best Buy on 3/22. We'll see...

What is the time of your order confirmation on the morning of 2/7?

Thank you.

The OM-D E-M5 I got a week or two ago from Adorama had the same type thing. A $50 charge and then the remaining balance of the order on another charge.
