    Actually, it's more a case of USD rising against GBP (and the Euro etc). GBP has been pretty stable against EUR for the last six months or so.

    The bottom line is the same of course: it's much cheaper for USA peeps to buy from the UK than it was just 2 months ago -something like 20%.

    Only 3 months ago the Aussie dollar was near parity with the US greenback at 98c and I was spending wildly in places like REI Seattle and amazon.com . Now look at the blasted thing!! You won't get that lucky now with the AUD, which has plunged to 0.60c and still falling. Downunder, overseas trips are being cancelled en masse, travel agents are folding and I am told, digital camera sales have slowed in the last 3 months, which is before this "global recession" thingy. I'm wondering if a recession means cheaper second hand camera gear...?

    Hah!! For a currency that has totally tanked you have to go far to beat the Aus$ :rolleyes: Like my esteemed countryperson above I too rejoiced and spent when the A$ was high on the hog, but now wince whenever I do the maths on a potential purchase.

    I tend to agree. Sooner or later, that money that Paulson is "injecting" into the system (his banking buddies) is going to show up and then it inflation city again.

    Wish I'd bought the US$ when the exchange was 2.05 to the pound.

    A version is available for the Beseler 45 colour, but not the condenser head. You'd need to send a colour head to Germany to be modified.
