Title: Has anyone bought from these?
Post by: stevebedder on December 26, 2009, 05:59:20 PM
Hi

Was just wondering if anyone had purchased anything from these guys on ebay before:

http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/Hong-Kong-Supplies__W0QQ_armrsZ1

They have a Phottix battery grip thats had some great reviews and is half the price of the Canon version!

They look like they have had some good positive feedback from those that have used them before, just wodered if anyone on here had any experience of them?

Cheers

Steve

I've not bought from them, but they are probably ok. Thing is what have you to loose? As long as you use credit card or paypal you would get most back. Actually CC would only be good for over £100.

Not as Hong Kong supplies but as Etefore. Good service and product at a fair price - so should be OK as HK Supplies....

Just to close this off, as I said I would do.

After just 10 short days I took delivery of the Phottix battery grip today and so far I am more than happy with it!

For £45 incl P&P it's an absolute bargain, especially as it's a third of the cost of the Canon version.

It is well made, feels very sturdy and fits the camera very well. The vertical controls do exactly what they say they do without any 'lag' (I always expect add-on controls to lag slightly for some reason ???)

Cheers  :tup:

Steve, I checked this out after your original post, and I ordered one for my Pentax bodies a couple of days ago, so I'm glad to hear that the Canon version is a good product.

So I guess mine will arrive in a week or so, and I'll add my thoughts on the Pentax version then.
