    Hi, just wondering if anyone here can recomend a decent website for ordering camera accessories.

    I`ve just priced up 2 spare batteries and 2 small cf cards for my 400d from amazon, and they want to charge me £12 delivery when the products only add upto £25. Seems excessive to me.

    I`m going to pop into my local jessops today, but im guessing they will be pricey.

    Also, on a side note, i was pricing batteries up on jessops main website and a battery for my 400d on there is about £50 , whereas on amazon i got a price of £7. Is there such a difference in batteries?

    If you want very cheap memory go to Play.com (I'm assuming you're in the UK). Free delivery normally as well.

    Yea, went to play, but couldnt find batteries for the canon 400d. So i got both batteries and memory from ebay.

    also, i picked up a tiffen cpol filter from filterdepot.
    I was looking at a Hoya cpol filter , but on amazon it was just over a tenner, whereas on another site (play , if i remember) it was £30, but there was no way of telling if there were different models or not, both were labeled just as hoya 58mm cpol filter.
    Do they have varying models of cpol filters for each brand, or is it generally just the 1?

    Hmm, I've heard that it's not a good idea getting memory off Ebay, lots of rip-offs out there.

    I know you are overseas, but I have bought batteries for my Digital Rebel from www.calcellular.com
    They have the NB-2LH for $8.60 http://www.calcellular.com/can-nb-2l.html
    They are very reliable in my experience, but international shipping is $15.99 USD. That would make it a total of £14.02 if my calculations are correct.
