    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.

    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 ..
