Can anyone recommend a place to get a used set of Pocketwizards? This does not seem to be an eBay item.

Anyone have some spares sitting as idle cash in their studios? LOL

Help appreciated.

Dude... eBay is where people get rid of things they don't want... and I don't know anyone who's used the Pocket Wizards that don't want more!

You might check out:

http://tinyurl.com/aeshf

which is a current ebay listing for something that does the same thing, but costs less than $40. If you search eBay you'll find some that are closing in the next few hours for even less than that.

Cheers,

They do come up on Ebay from time to time. I bought a set there and a transmitter from www.cameras.com. The most likely place to find a set for sale is from people who rent them out. The set that I got on Ebay came from Alkit Photography. They sell a lot of their excess inventory on Ebay. Don't expect them to come cheap.

They show up on eBay every so often. I got an extra transmitter and 2 more recievers from there. What you can do is set up a custom search and it will notify you when something you have it up to look for comes up for sell. I've managed to get good deals on the ones I've gotten there but they often sell for close to new price.

I just heard that one of the Hotels in Las Vegas has two dwarfs (little people/short people) performing Magic three or four nights a week. I guess if you had fairly large pockets, they would fit in them.. and I hear they work for peanuts.. so that would be a cheap pair of Pocket Wizards...

Yeah ebay... that's the way to go... I am an ebay-a-holic... One can buy soap, clothes, autos, houses, midgets, children... and sell ex wives or ex boyfriends... you name it... they got it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

it's probably better buying them new.. they don't drop in value and most on ebay are close to the same price as new.

Thanks for the helpful and the extremely weird advice. LOL

Whoever said that eBay gets as much as new was very right. BHPhoto has them onsale and I think I will just buy them that way.

I also wanted the transmitter because at the workshops that is what they seem to be using more and more and it means I can skip the hand me down the transmitter line.

Thanks to all.

I also plan to employ a couple of small people however. Whoever had that idea I thank you. LOL
