These are pretty good. Don't loose their all their charge if your flash sits idle for weeks.

I will agree with Shoturtle and Dr Spock. I use 'em for an external flash as well as a point 'n shoot, and they not only have a long "shelf life", but they last forever under use.

Sanyo Eneloop, work great, hold 80% or more of their charge in my flash for a year (I know, I need to get out more). Sure wish these where on the market back when I use to do weddings. Back then we were lucky to get 50-60 flashes out of a set of rechargeable batteries and they had to be charged the night before the wedding shoot.

Wow. You must be a great customer, since I can see images of them posted under a folder that happens to have your name in it on that same vendor's site.

You are now banned for posting Spam, and all links to the company you're trying to promote are now being filtered by our forums software, regardless of the member posting them (even if a satisfied customer is the one posting the links).

The next time you want to do your company any favors, I'd suggest being careful about posting Spam in forums to try and advertise them, as many forums do not like vendors pretending to be customers and promoting companies, products and services in their forums.

You'd be surprised at how much spam we remove here.

I usually ban a number of members in the morning before they even make their first post (because you can tell they're spammers from the links in their signatures and the IP addresses they're posting from, using centralized spammer databases with input from multiple forums).

What's bad is that more and more legitimate businesses are using "Marketing Companies" to try and increase their site's page hits and search engine rankings. These firms make use of Spammers located overseas, and they often use Spambot software like Xrumer to post spam with links to their clients' sites to hundreds of different forums and blogs at a time, with the posts looking like a real person made them (even quoting previous posts in a thread, etc.). This software is getting to be very smart and is hard to spot posts from, unless know what to look for.

But, what I really find the most annoying (and IMO, unethical) is when someone associated with a company pretends to be a customer and posts links to their site in order to promote their products and services.

When they do that, I'll sometimes filter all links to the company they're promoting to prevent them from joining under a new member name and doing the same thing again later.
