....on eBay....



.....from Hong Kong.





Which, of course, is a serious point. For stuff like remote releases, batteries, filters, etc., the non-branded Chinese stuff is just as good. (and probably made in the same factories).

Was looking for a remote release for my 7D earlier - Canon were charging something around the £40 mark for a simple cable remote with just a shutter button and lock - similar 3rd party would net me timer release and even radio for around that amount. The same from canon costing around the £120! price point.

I know that the profit margin on lenses is not as high as we think and that many companies and shops clean up the profits on accessories, but I do feel that they get rather cheeky with the prices - esp when they are often drumming down on the actual features of what you get.

Some of the products look quite well priced after converting euro prices to UK£ - I have not checked shipping costs.

Hmm, branded clothing. I've never understood why people are happy to pay for the privilege of being unpaid walking advertisements.

True but do you have any camera equipment, car, pair of jeans almost anything that doesn't carry external branding Smile

More than being an advert, I think you'd simply look a complete t**t wearing clothing with a camera brand on it.. good grief... why not just get a t-shirt printed with the word DORK across it - much cheaper Grin

Used to be the habit among us pros to put black tape over the camera pentaprism housing, thus covering up the makers name. It also served as a protection from minor dings.
