Where to buy in Europe: GoPro Hero HD

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Where to buy in Europe: GoPro Hero HD

Like the topic says, where can I get the Gopro Hero HD (preferbly the Motorsport edition) in Europe, the be a bit more specific where can I get for a good price.

Sure there are retailers in the EU, thing is though, they are all asking € 349,00. And thats the whole problem. € 349,00 = 428 US $.

I have looked around a bit on Ebay and Amazon. And on those site you can get the same product for prices starting around $ 229,00. Amazon charges $ 40,00 for shipping to Europe. Well everyone can do the math 229 + 40 = 269 USD = € 219 (Only problem with Amazon, they dont ship this specific product to Europe).
On Ebay the cheapest top rated seller sells for $ 308,00 Including shipping costs, which is € 250.00. (They do ship to Europe).

I dont see any reason why I should pay 40% more then US customers.

I could buy it from Ebay, but I prefer to shop locally. Plus, I would like to have the camera before next Sunday, I have 2 events coming up where this camera would feel at home.


ps. If anyone knows who Distributes/Wholesales these products in the UK, Germany or in the Netherlands, let me know aswell.
