Hi Steve I'm amazed I was the one to drag you out into the open at last! I guess you're referring to my
outing of STS's ridiculous price that they charge me for these cams. I'm unrepentant I'm afraid. Firstly
maybe I'm being ripped off compared to what they charge other retailers - if they charge you a different
price, I haven't published it here anyway. But in THIS case how exactly do retailers lose by customers
knowing how high my costs are? It would only show them how small my margin was if I chose to
charge less than RRP.

If retailers meekly accept the prices charged by local distributors, who seem happy to pocket the extra
they make from the strong A$, then they're condemned to lose out to people buying direct. I reckon all
us retailers should get together and make a bulk order from that website! With the discount they might
give us, and the saving in freight, we'd be able to make a small retail margin and actually sell
