Thread: Getting accessories at Comex, good idea?

  1. #1

    Default Getting accessories at Comex, good idea?

    Getting bodies and lens are a waste of time. How about accessories? I never keep track of the prices so wondering is it worth the trip? Thinking of getting a Di866 Mk2 and simple accessories for portrait use - stands, lightbox, reflector, etc that kind of stuff.

    And being cramped by hundreds... getting a piece of equipment that might easily have been cheaper on streets... short answer - NOOOOOOOO!

    Well... the best bet is still to check your prices up... it was easy, just called up individual shops immediately and ask the price. Then u decide whether to go get cramped up or not.

    The only accessory worth getting is MAHA battery charger, the high end C801S is abt $20 cheaper than usual store price. I want to get it without the batteries, any takers?

    Can't you buy it at eastgear at the same price during the same period?

    Thanks for the replies. My main interest is whether its cheaper for the Di866 Mk2 at $379 there. Tried calling but no one answering. The cheaper items I don't really expect any savings but might get along the way.

    I just checked their website, it's a little cheaper in Comex. C800S/C801D is $90/$120 in Comex, both comes with 8 imedion batteries. Web price is $119/$150.

    Hi there, I got my Di866 M2 at TK Photo Funan for $365 in Apr / May this year. It was during the last IT show. The show was selling at $398 'special' price. Comes with free lens pen. Was at Comex just now and the manfrotto 190xprob price is at $188. Think not much diff from outside. Agree that it's a waste of time.

    Another thing you can get from Comex is CF/SD memory cards. Also slightly cheaper I think.
