    girl friend is a cost center. Why not advertise her as model in photo shoot sessions?
    A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.

    Fellas...happen to see this discussion and hope my input clears things up.

    Firstly, the post for the 580ex was not a hoax. Yes, too good to be true as I thought initially at first. Then I took my chance to email and PM the seller. She is located here in SG around Bouna Vista area. That is good because it doesn't sound like those scammers located overseas and asking for payment in advance via western union etc.

    Why do I say that the post was not a hoax? Because I was the lucky buyer who contacted Miss Penelope first and the Canon 580EX was sold to me last night in excellent condition by this really nice lady. She sold off all her dslr gears and this flash is the last remaining gear and hence the price. Mint condition 580EX at 80 bucks is a real steal

    So guys, I hope this clears up all the doubts that you may have yeah. Have a great weekend! =)

    I'll send you $80 first and the other $80 after I've got the flash from you.
