    morning, folks!

    fyi - i was doing housecleaning on my PC yesterday morning when my cable modem died on me. so, couldn't do anything for the whole day. the starhub techie just delivered my new modem. so, finally back online and updating my PC.

    for those who couldn't attend the meeting, here's a quick update. for those present, we decided it was a "No Go" becos of the most recent update from geoffp on the condition of the equipment. we calculated, just for the D1s, any bidder will have to spend at least $500 just to buy a new batt and charger (original nikon batt costs ard $100, which btw is out of stock. the charger which is only available from nikon, cost ard $400 new). dat is not including the refurbishment costs, will sykestang conservatively estimated to be ard $300 just to replace the leather coverings. the sensor, which nikon has limited stock as d1 is out of production, cost ard $1000+ just to replace. shutters will cost, est, another $200+ to replace. all in all, we have to spend another $1k+ just to repair any working cameras.

    this is not counting the costs of cleaning the lenses. sykestang did a repair once of his AF-s 80-200. the internal elements, to replace, costs more than $1k, not including cleaning and labour.

    bearing in the mind the costs involve, we decided it was not worth it. i believe kennyleong sent out a mail last nite to all already? for those still keen, by all means u can go ahead and bid for the batch urself.

    cheers!

    Shutter should be S$500+ ($200 is way too cheap!) to replace.

    hehe.. dats my quote given when i asked abt replace d100 shutters.

    oh yes, sykestang also mentioned that, for a camera this age, we can expect hot pixels on the sensor due to wear and tear. eawtan - can u verify that, since u use the 1-series body?

    Batteries are probably dead (EN4 don't have a long life).

    NW75,

    Thanks for the update, wow, I didn't know that element replacement is so $$$.
