I know this won't help you in the desired price range, but B&H had new units in stock last week at $36.95. I would think they might have some still left.



They show out of stock on the new one, but they show an E condition used one for $25. They don't take orders until 9:30 PM Eastern time. I just got a used one for $25 from KEH in EX condition.

I'm kinda curious how you guys use the long cord? I almost bought the long one but there werent any in stock when I placed my order, I'm dont miss the extra length or bulk though since I'm usually within an arms reach of the camera anyway.

The major use for the long one is to be able to get in front of the camera and include yourself in the photo. Of course, you can just set the timer, but if you wanted to take many different poses the long cord might be better as long as it didn't show up in the photo. It might also work better for a pro, who might have to walk back and fourth between shots and snap without being in front of the camera in case he sees a sudden oppourtunity.

Short for Macro or general tripod use, and long for studio type shots (maybe you need to get close to the kids to get them to smile or laugh). I paid as much for my short cord 2 months ago as I paid for the long one yesterday.

Such a bargain.... the other day the starting bid was 10 dollars now it is 5 dollars. I wonder what the hell he put it through. I love the smooth repair job.

Strange thing is that this same guy is selling two miny looking Maxum 9 film cameras with grips.
