    The staff should have known. The shops here have a life time of a butterfly - not just the photo ones.
    Our industrial estates are similar.
    The popular songs of the '30s depression have a whole new meaning.

    You know I thought something was up when last week I noticed 20+ units of Calumet 750ws strobes on sale at Roberts Camera on ebay. Considering the calumet strobes are rebranded bowens made strictly for calumet, I thought it was odd a different camera company would have such a large stock. Unless someone was going out of business, they range from beat up to fairly used, so I'm assuming they came from Calumet's rentals department. Pretty good prices for 750 monoblocs. If I didn't blow a few hundred last month on new film I'd jump on one of these.

    For reasons unknown, there are lots of people who want—or need—to believe that buggy whips are extinct.

    Just ask the horses. They know better...

    Might be a separately owned company, just using the brand name "Calumet" under licence. Similar to franchises, and, of course, the recent situation where the Swiss "Ilford" operation went into difficulties, but was completely unconnected to our own, much-loved, Harman Technology "Ilford" company.

    A search on the UK government public register of companies (companieshouse.gov.uk ) can provide a lot of information for anyone interested, for a nominal fee.

    Rather sad; I used to use these guys for hire equipment when I would fly to the US for photoshoots. Their selection was pretty good and the bonus for me, was that they happily delivered and collected the gear - I didn't need to try and find the place.

    Have used Calumet in the UK many times as well, only thing was it was more complicated buying from them as their "International" sales were expected to go through the US.
