Yep...and if we had a reliable source for all those bits and pieces then we'd be away.
It's not wise for us to go down the Ebay (or equivalent) route as it's not constant or reliable enough, we always try hard to align ourselves with reputable manufacturers and importers and build relationships with them etc. etc. and this takes a little longer.
But you're quite right, we're edging closer all the time and Mark at Nite-Tek is being really helpful. Looking forward to having a 'one click' solution in the near future
totally agree mate
ebay is just not the way to go for someone like yourselves.....not least because its mainly a retail outlet!
a number of times lads on here have posted a page full of ebay links to useful stuff they have found. they had dragged stuff out of their watch list and bookmarks and a third of them were already useless, either didn't exist or had changed spec
the only time ebay links from us to you are useful is just to show you the sort of thing we are after or what we currently find to be the best item for the job or whatever
the 5" screens we use now seem to be pretty reliable and consistant, good picture too
12v batteries, i'd go the little (1800mh?) blue ones
18650 charger. its gotta be a nite-core intellicharger for me.
FYGT, i reckon a decent DVR would push the price up too high, esp as not everyone needs/wants one
nowt wrong with stocking one as an optional extra though i s'pose
anyway, we all think you've done a great job already mat. off the top of my head i can remember telling some-one that you stock a certain connector or adaptor at least three or four times over the last few weeks.....ok it was only a couple of quid doodad each time, but it was a bloody sight easier than trawling ebay to find the fella a link to a seller i probably know nothing about.
