This is where you're wrong. If you have a Visa/MC Debit card, it is protected through the issuing bank and through Visa or MC. I had a dispute with the Camera Hunter (guy who owns a store, also runs through ebay) In which I order a filter and a hood in October and hadn't received it two months later. I called my issuing bank, and disputed the charge, told them I had attempted to contact him several times, hadn't returned my emails or calls, so they refunded me the money, and told me that if 30 days passed and they couldn't resolve the dispute, the money was mine either way, and if they got a response, their dispute center would handle it and if my claim was valid, I'd get a refund. It never went that far, claim was resolved, and I got my money back.

Broadway Photo is part of this JJ Digital Co. There is a guy who researched all of these "camera superstores" locations and found most of the registered locations to be rundown warehouses, abandoned or condemned businesses, or random houses. There are many variations on the Broadway Photo name, but they are all the same. Go to ripoff report and you'll see what I mean.

What really disgusted me was a couple months ago Pop Photo ran a story on Bait and Switch Camera shops like this. The next month rolls around, and my issue Of Shutterbug comes in. As I'm flipping through Shutterbug, I notice a two page spread ad for Broadway Photo. I contacted the advertising manager, to no avail. The ads continue to run in Shutter bug monthly. Needless to say, I've canceled my shutterbug subscription, and will be writing the editor shortly, which I encourage all of you to do as well...this place is just scamming more and more people, and now are advertising in a reputable magazine.

K10D + M42 Lenses + AF540FGZ Flash - How?

Hmm...This is interesting. I know for a fact that the P-TTL Most Likely will not work with these lenses, and I don't know if TTL Will either. I could be wrong but I believe that the K10D supports TTL, so a less expensive option might be to look to ebay for a used 500FTZ rather than the 540. Just my advice.

Battery Grip K100D

Hey Guys, I'm wondering if you can help me out...

I really want a battery grip for my k100d, as When you get a flash, and lens, and a gary fong diffuser on the camera, it get awkward, especially for portraits.

I see three options on ebay...

Option 1) Dicain Vertical Shutter:

I like that this one matches the body so well and that it has the shutter release in it, but it seems expensive for not adding any battery it worth it?

Option 2) Gadget Infinity Battery Grip

I like that it offers both release and extra power, but loose cables make it look cheap, and I'm not quite sure how well the design would look with the camera or how ergonomic this grip actually is.

Option 3) Battery Grip
This one is much much cheaper than all the rest, but I'm not sure how great the battery power is if it is any good at all, and there is no shutter release.

See my dilemma? Can anyone provide reviews if they have used the grip or pictures of your cameras with any of these grips? Is there another option I'm missing? All help is much appreciated. Thanks!
