Exclamation If you are planning an Amazon purchase...

Buy through the FTU Amazon shop and help support the E-Group and our other work

We always encourage the support of local camera dealers who work hard to serve their customers at a time when competition from online retailers makes survival increasingly difficult.

However, if you choose to buy from Amazon - and that means ANYTHING, not just photography products - please considering using the Amazon eShop on our sibling site Four Thirds User. You can find it here:

http://fourthirds-user.com/buyers_guide.php

If you buy through links on our eShop pages we will earn a small but welcome commission. Apart from the hire service, we don't earn any more now form the E-Group than we did 6 years ago when this site was launched.

Any purchase via our Amazon shop will provide valuable income and it won't cost you any extra. Indeed, it may make your purchasing just that little more satisfying.

If the eShop doesn't list what you are looking for, do let us know. You don't have to purchase featured items to generate income for us; you can use the search facility instead although the commission rate is not as high. But we welcome anything

Thanks,

Ian

Re: If you are planning an Amazon purchase...

I certainly will. As above, I've spent a fortune over the last year, sadly too late to credit the group, but will certainly look to buy through the link in future.

Re: If you are planning an Amazon purchase...

Had a quick shufti looking for blue-ray films / TV series etc., and nothing shows? Looking to get some of the Danish series of TV shows showing on UKTV. Some of these are yet to be released so could be future products to help out supplement the group forum income?

Re: If you are planning an Amazon purchase...

I also have recently spent a lot on Amazon but still have prezzies to buy. Is it not possible to include the Amazon link details somewhere on the header of each page?
