I've had great experience buying off...When dealing with overseas companies, it's always a relief to know the companies you can trust. is one of them! But from now on I will click through Ausphotography to purchase from so commission stays at home.
DON - Teachable, always learning, always experimenting, just want to know everything I can about photography!
Another shameless plug for Stu at Quality Camera in Perth.

Canon 7d, 450D, 50 f/1.8 II, 85 f/1.8, 70-200 f/2.8 L IS, 100 f/2.8 USM Macro, Tamron 24-70 f/2.8
What can I say?
- It has one leg (they had me worried for a moment)
- It's light
- It's cheap (abut 1/10th of the 'frotto price) $17.99
- It's tall 1.8m
- It works!
- It is a bit flimsy/plastic, but as long as I keep my neck strap on it will do what I need
eg. the head adjustment handle is plastic as is the mount plate
- Quick delivery
I can't find any multi leg monopods of their site
From, just order my long saved for 60D.
First time buying anything on w.w.w., so I'm now nervously exited.
My card reader has finally spat the dummy, I have about 60 sunrise shots from this morning and I can't download 'em! Have ordered a Lexar one from Cheap as Chips threough the link here.
Just wanted to say i ordered a box of memory from cheapchips.com.au yesterday... it arrived today as promised. Extremely happy! And yes, they were pretty cheap!
Just bought two sigma lenses through. Super quick (3 days) great prices and great after sales service. I highly recomend them.

Two million years of evolution and I'm still a Homo ergaster.
Just tried to order a canon 70-200 F2.8 L is II and 2X III extender through "e Global" and found you cannot order without a landline phone number. The only way round this was with a Pay Pal account but they would not put the payment through my bank account which is my prefered payment method and as I do not have a credit card only a debit card with a different bank it takes 2 business days for a transfer to go through at which time I will be away from my computer visiting my son who is in the Royal Adelaide Hospital with a serious spinal infection. I was hoping to get this lens for an event in a couple of weeks. I'm not a happy camper at the moment.
it makes things very difficult when you live in a remote area and most people don't have a land line number. I tried to get an answer out of pay pal but their on line help is non existant and just keeps going pound in circles. The online chat agent from e Global tried his best to help.

It's a dilemma as many people like Keith won't pay the price of land line services and rely solely on mobile and satellite coverage.

As a Pensioner the land line is an unnecessary expense that I can do without and my only choices for internet are 1. Dial Up. Super slow, useless. 2. Mobile, only with Telstra, super expensive and 3. Satellite, affordable with a few choices. As for some of the farmers the cost of getting and maintaining the line from the road to the house is prohibitive. There are some around here that still do not even have mains power let alone landline phones.
Your dilemma was brought home to me when I was doing my wool classing certificate. The distance some had to pay for land line cables to be extended to their location was just ridiculous. I understand the concept of "user pays" but governments ought to recognise that not subsidising services to rural locations runs counter to their often reiterated desire for decentralisation of populations.
Sorry to read that Keith and they call Australia the lucky country, you would think they would subsidize landlines for people who live in remote areas.There are some around here that still do not even have mains power let alone landline phones.
Life must be hard for Farmers that dont have electricity connected because of the cost also.. Any wonder people wont move to country areas ?
I ordered seven items from on Monday a 50mm f1/4 lens, 5 diffusers and a 16gb Memory Card
They would not let me use PayPal seems Australia is not on that list, never had that happen before with other companies.
Parcel arrived in Sydney very early yesterday morning Friday, estimated day of arrival this Thursday
I reckon it may get here before that maybe Tuesday.
