This post is only applicable in Australia. Here is a freebie from Olympus, take it while you can as these things are rare. From 1st march 2012 until 31st May 2012 if you buy an Olympus DS-5000/AS-5000 bundle then you are eligible for a free gift. The bundle is available from us for $999 incl. GST delivered.
Why bundle? Well many people looking to upgrade from analogue tape to digital will generally purchase both a transcription kit and a voice recorder in one go. If you have been thinking of moving to digital dictation now would be a great time especially as you can pick up a free digital camera or free WS series voice recorder as a part of your bundle.
This is the first promo of its kind from Olympus Australia where redemption is via the official Olympus Australia website. In the past Olympus have posted out cameras to its Pro resellers as a give away, this is a smart move again from Olympus as it starts to centralise its legitimate Pro customers in the Olympus Australia system. By legitimate I mean customers who have purchased only from official Australian Pro voice resellers and not the grey market responsible for cheap overseas imports and refurbished dictaphones with no warranty in Australia.
Which one shall I choose, the camera or the WS series recorder? Of course you should choose the WS series recorder … but I would say that, i’m a digital voice person rather than a photographer. However, the WS series is an excellent little recorder to have handy in your office for recording team meetings etc.
To redeem your free gift you will need a receipt number from your Pro reseller and supply all your details. The small print says that delivery of your gift can take upto 6 weeks so be prepared for a wait. We have already started to email our customers from the last couple of weeks who purchased an Olympus DS-5000 AS-5000 bundle as the promotion although announced yesterday (26th march 2012) is retrospective to the 1st march 2012.
