Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

Not a Black Friday Deal but yesterday I had an email from Jack The Hat Photography who are based in Maryport, Cumbria regarding Em1 Mk2 remote releases which they have for sale. Price is 5-99 including delivery. Have used them a few times and found them to be a good company to deal with. Thought it might be of interest to our members, got to be worth a look at this price. Regards, Ian W.

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

I don't know why we have "Black Friday" deals downunder, but I didn't say no to 15% off the HLD-9 grip. I've been waiting for a good discount (& a reasonable delay after spending all that money on the body).

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

In the past there have been some really good deals by Amazon on Olympus equipment. Back in 2015 I (and I think others) got a bargain on the 50-150 PRO +TC. I have not seen any good deals this year (not that I have any money left) and prices are now going upwards higher than they were before. Anyone snag a real bargain?

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

If I really wanted something, I am too impatient to wait for a bargain day. I just go and buy it from a the best source I can find at the time.

Suspect people buy things they probably don't really need because of the bargain offer.....

Present company not included..........

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

There were a couple of things I wanted but the prices didn't drop enough to trigger my mouse. Now they've gone up so I'll do without and wait for s/h copies to come along.

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

I've had loads of offers trying to sell me software that used to be free: IntelliCAD! Dunno what I would actually do with it, though.......

Talking Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

I ended up getting a Karcher...

That will get those stubborn spots off the sensor.

Sounds adequate. Just take a video of you doing it & show us how well the camera performs after that 'special' treatment.

Re: BLACK Friday - Deals

Not a Black Friday deal as such but Roberts Radio ( www.robertsradio.com ) has an outlet store selling most of their wireless sets at half price. We have just bought one as a Christmas present and whilst they say there may be slights marks or signs of wear ours in unmarked.

Best prices will be found on their Evilbay store although they may well sell at Evilbay prices if you place a telephone order.

What on earth is one of those... ?? Isn't it something that you put your plastic card on to pay a bill?
