The MK3 has two options -

normal - sounds like the noise you would expect from a steampunk camera (ie awesome!)
and
silent (aka moppie/cat fart) useful for quiet situations but not quite silent

Buy it from the US and use a reshipper for postage.

Pretty much. When I worked in retail for cameras, anything like that was scarce in NZ, we did have one supplier who made them to order at great cost. Buy overseas.


Cheers, Dave.

Cheers guys...so assuming B&H is the ticket...just curious Rob, (and excuse my simpleness) what exactly is a reshipper?
Wouldn't they just ship it for me or is a reshipper a courier I organise and will cost less or something like that?

I use nz posts youshop (external link) easy to set up, you get a 'US' address to use. Order using that and free US shipping , they send you an email when it arrives and you pay them for postage (cheaper than B&H etc).

NZ post one is simple. there are others that will combine postage, remove packing, and invoices etc:D

It works really well, set of filters from 2filter $50US postage or free in the US and $20NZ from youpost!

Youshop works well, but do a weight/size estimate to work out if direct postage is cheaper - direct is heaps easier and quicker. Youshop takes 1-2 weeks, usually more like 1 but it varies.

There are others, youshop is new from NZ Post.

Hi All, been offline without telephone or internet at home for 19 days as I dared to change my provider. And it ran less than smoothly.

Anyway my new results are quite impressive.

Mark, do you want a cheap ISP or a good one? ADSL or something else? I pay about that with TC Cable, which works well for me.

I'm using ADSL and I am happy with that. I want good ISP with reasonable prices. But I guess being NZ counts that out.

I do about 40GB a month give or take a gb or two.

Consumer rates Inspire, Actrix, PlaNet, Snap, Iconz, then WxC/Xnet. Xnet who you're currently with rate 88%, about 2/3 of the way up the charts.

Why do you want to change? If you have good performance and good service I suggest you stay put, you won't save much money going elsewhere and if someone's cheaper there's probably a reason.

we'd noticed the quietness... ;) Funny, I have a customer over here that has a Deutsch Telekom WAN circuit - and it runs at less than 10% of the speed of yours & they're always complaining it's unuseable (but then I guess you get what you pay for eh?)

what's your current provider not doing that you need?


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5
TF posting: here :-)
