Just wanting some feedback on aftermarket items available (mainly) from eBay. Ive always been the type of person to stick with genuine items for the likes of car and motorcycle parts, iPhone accessories etc etc. Should i use the same principles with camera gear?
When looking at accessories for the EOS1100D online, the genuine Canon items can be quite expensive and i have found quite a few aftermarket alternatives on eBay. The cost saving can be quite a bit, but is it worth it?
Ive come to questioning this after just purchasing a car battery charger for it. AUD $7 Landed, Ex USA.
The main thing im after is a battery grip, Genuine Canon is around AUD$199.95 from a reputable online Aus store. Aftermarket from eBay start at AUD$40 delivered.
Batteries are AUD$50 in Genuine Canon, Aftermarket $10 delivered. Ive also read somewhere that aftermarket ones wont register battery info?
The above are two items im after to give you an idea of what im getting at. Would like to hear some feedback before i buy anything else
