    Is 8 Banners still in Business ?

    Anyone hear anything from 8 Banners lately?
    I have not been able to get a response from anyone over there since the first time I tried around 1/25.
    Thanks

    Holga: if it was any more analog, you'd need a chisel.

    Don't forget it's Chinese New Year. May factor in.

    also there's been unusually heavy snow in parts of China causing widespread disruption.

    2/11 - more than 2 weeks and no word on my order- I'll keep this thread aware of any changes but it so far doesn't look very good.

    Victor,

    Thanks for the update. I have been considering purchasing one of their cameras. I hope they come through for you. Has your credit card taken a hit yet?

    I've dealt with them more than a year ago, always very prompt to reply. That said I wish you the best of luck with this, hopefully just something wierd has happened.

    Have you checked ebay to see if they have anything listed? I'll have to try and remember the user name, if I do I'll post it for you.

    Hi Vic - For manufacturers the New Year celebration can be a lights out/dark factory affair so I would give it some time before getting too concerned.

    A good friend of mine works in the fashion industry. Apparently China literally just shuts down entirely for a couple of weeks for New Years. Large factories don't have anyone answering phones, etc. I'd still give it little time.

    The website thing does give me a little pause, but if there was a problem, their IT guy probably isn't working either.
