http://www.efoton.eu/foton,shop,strona,home.html - These seem great prices - Anyone ever used them?

Not personally, but there's quite a lot of user experiences over on SimplyDV: search for "foton" there.

Great feedback from the other forum, but they seem to be under the impression the site's all in Polish - Maybe it was then, but it's all English now! These prices seem heaps lower than UK gear.

Yes branny, but apart from their rain covers, bags and questionable shoulder supports that do look reasonably priced (highly dependant on the quality) what are they offering?

Dodgy 'red velvet flock covered' CD & DVD cases which would be condemned by the style police, 'old-style' 80's camcorder lighting units based on 'lead-acid' batteries & cigarette-lighter connectors and cheap bottom end AT mics (which I have seen cheaper in the UK but wouldn't touch with a bargepole). Their camcorders can certainly be sourced cheaper here. Don't get me started on their DVD designs! :D

They sent me a full-colour catalogue about a week ago, but pages and pages of it are devoted to their horrid CD/DVD cases and apart from different wording on the front in hideous gold flowery lettering they are all almost identical!

Err, yes, those cases did shout a little. I got the glossy brochure too, and was underwhelmed at their showcase items. In all fairness though I only browsed the raincovers and supports. A few on the other forum have purchased the supports and are very impressesd with the build quality.
