Some kinda photo junkie??

Recommended Posts

i sold a lens on hsolist the other day,after reviewing the feedback of the buyer,i clicked on the item numbers to see what else they had been buying. wow,this person is just plain photo crazy or something.

since october this person bought:

mark 1d for $5600

5d for $4500

numerous 100-400 is l's

2-300 l's

3-70-200 is l's

2-600 l's

plus dozens of other canon high end cameras,lenses/accs. too numerous to mention. i thought maybe it was a dealer,but they were not great deals. not cheap enough to make any money by re-selling.

i added up a little over $45,000 on camera stuff in just over 2 months!

and i didn't even look thru all of it!! probably 30-40 other items!!

this is one serious dude!! or a complete nut. maybe buying for a school or something???

It's probably someone speculating in the market, buying and hoping to sell at higher prices. hsolist is tremendously a seller's market. I've seen many, many used items sold for more on hsolist, not including shipping charges, than you could buy them for new on sale. Happens all across the board.

At the prices you mention, however, I reckon this person ain't making a profit. And if he's buying for a school, the school is losing BIG TIME.

There is no Canon Mark 1D. If it's a Canon 1D, then he got totally shafted at $5,600. If it's a Canon 1D Mark2, he got totally shafted. If it's a Canon 1D Mark2n, he got totally shafted. If it's a Canon 1Ds, he got totally shafted. If it's a Canon 1Ds Mark2 (in excellent shape) he did OK.

He also got totally shafted on the Canon 5D.

Well, there's no such thing as a "eos-1 mark 2d" either. But if it's a 1D Mark2, even with a couple cheap lenses, he got taken royally. Does it list the megapixel count anywhere? That'd separate the sheep from the goats and help us figure out which model we're talking about. Not that it matters much. Just fun to figure out.

The only 16.7 Mp dslr Canon makes is the 1Ds Mark2. It is currently selling for $6,800 new. If he got it and a couple junk lenses for $5,600, it's potentially a good deal (the junk lenses don't figure in — they are junk), depending on how many shutter actuations the body has (it's rated to 100,000) and what general condition it's in.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
