I have seen this many times on fleabay where an item can be say £2 plus £20 shipping and the same item can be £20 plus £2 shipping. Either way it is £22. It must dupe some people or they would not keep doing it.

Sorry can't help on whether the kit is any use. Amazon may be a better place to look as there are normally reviews which can be helpful.

It's done so that the seller doesnt have to pay as much commission on the sale price to ebay.

Oh well. It was just a thought.

Really want a big lense to cover a wide area. Not really essential to have a camera, ,but it seems a shame to miss opportunity to photograph whats going on in hive.

MM, it doesn't save so much as the custom crew sett he Vat on cost + shipping costs and the VAT is aq much larger part than the import duty.
