    Fake Loius Vitton, but what about fake camera gear?

    All may not be as it seems. Camera equipment is now suffering the same fate as designer fashion brands.

    ^ Interesting.

    Actually, I know one or two fake photographers. They talk the talk well enough and have all the gear, but their photographs are carp.

    Nobody reads signatures. For proof, refer to my previous one.

    LOL! we've seen quite a few of them pass through this site too.

    They eventually get caught out tho, and some last a while, most don't last long.

    I also remember a story from some US based tog about fake Nikon MB-D10 grips. He purchased what to most eyes looked exactly like an MB-D10, only to find out later on(after a side by side comparison) that his original purchase wasn't as original as it should have been.

    Now the Chinese are onto faking flashes? I wonder if they've made an attempt at Nikon and or other brands too?

    I love my fake Louis Vuitton handbag, but i would be cheesed off if i ended up with a fake flash, thanks for bringing it to our attention. I am contemplating buying one, and would never have thought about fake ones being offered ..
