    original post was not showing up on several newsfeeds, including Telstra :(

    For anyone still interested with a Canon 10D, D30, D60, or Proshot90

    I've ordered some more BP511 batteries, anybody that is still
    interested please contact and confirm your requirements via email ASAP, and
    I will order what you require.

    Price is $40 each plus fixed price postage of $6.50 regardless of quantity

    I buy the Canon ones for $102. So in your $3000 camera you save $60. Is that
    price in proportion with the grade of cells used and the strict quality
    control of Chinese factories.

    Well if you read the post, I did say "cells form Japan Casing assembled in

    If you think the Chinese don't know how to injection mould a piece of
    plastic....I think you are mistaken.

    AFAIK the Canon originals are also assembled in China. To fit an "origin
    label" as in "Made in XXXXX" label on a product you only need 60% content
    from the country you are claiming it to be manufactured in. A large
    percentage of the plastic mouldings for the D30/D60/10D/1Ds are also
    injection moulded in China & Korea.

    So the short and obvious answer to your question is surprise surprise...No.

    There is a huge difference between Korea and China.

    Why do you say that Miro?
    I've spent reasonable amounts of time in both countries, and yes, I'll
    agree that they are different, but I'm interested in your reasons for
    saying so...

    Just take a look at Hyundai Corporation and tell me it's second rate. I
    think the pride of the Koreans is a large factor in the way they build and

    Communism does not make the same type of factory. It never has.

    Very little of what's happening today in China (or even in the last
    decade) has had anything to do with Communism, or hadn't you noticed?

    EVERYTHING that happens in China has to do with Communism Bruce... Get your
    head out of your arse and discover you never really had sunnies on in the
    first place.

    korean products still have a long way to go before they meet the quality
    of japanese products

    Actually, if you look at the economic development of the last decade
    or so, particularly the government's diversion of large chunks of
    resources into developing their own manufacturing and technology
    sectors that they can use to compete with the rest of the world, you'd
    have noticed that the Chinese Central Committee is fast turning into
    the Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

    Of course, I wouldn't have expected you to react any differently than
    to say "no it isn't" with a random personal attack throw on the
    end. Perhaps you should learn to structure your arguments better?

    Oh, and top-posting is the sign of a weak and lazy mind.

    So why do Japanese firms do so much there ?
    Miro, Jul 3, 2003
  15. Derek

    Bruce Murphy Guest

    Because of what the insane exchange rates against the Yen were doing
    to the Japanese firms a decade ago. Don't you have any grasp of
    economics at all?

    Oh, I'm sorry, you think that the phrase (of yours)

    "Get your head out of your arse and discover you never really had
    sunnies on in the first place."

    is one of endearment? How interesting. Wouldn't mind knowing precisely
    what connection you see between economics and insults, either. Or did you
    think you'd just leap in, cut out the previous sentence that provided
    context, and then let fly with another poor attempt at a snide remark?

    Johnnie5 Guest

    no need to know asian economy to know that the cost and quality of products
    that come out of asian countries other than japan are not to the same standards
    as what comes out of japan

    Has it crossed your mind that the "quality" is what the importer specifies.
    If people didnt buy cheap rip-offs there wouldnt be a trade in rubbish
    quality would there.

    Its not the factory it's the customer that is stupid.
