    I just recieved my latest E-bay purchase. A remote shutter switch for my EOS 650. I can't wait to go home and try it out. Finally, no more self timer for tripod shots.

    Wow, that's pretty sweet. I got mine (used) for $25 and that's as cheep as it gets. They wanted $70 for one at the camera store. :shock:

    eBay can be nice can't it? I've never had a problem.
    I got a brand new Sigma EX 55mm circular polarizer off of the for a total of £18 once. It's normally £50 on its own.

    I have to say I haven't had any problems with Ebay. Truth to tell I've gotten some pretty sweet deals.

    It's great if you're new to photography and want to try old things out for cheap.

    Ancient Zenit Camera + 3 lenses + Bag + flash = £20! (35 US$)

    And it works, developed my first film last night, they came out and everything.

    mmmmmm, developing

    It's easy to find all sortsd of great deals on ebay as long as you are careful and use common sense :wink: I've bought quite a bit of gear in the last year from my favorite on-line store :wink:

    I'm glad you all posted that. Mr.Pet is just sure that E-Bay is full of crooks.

    There are lots of crooks but they are usually easy to spot.

    If it looks too good to be true...it probably is.
