Linkdelight review (Canon 5DmkII 4gb USB drives)
I have been using Linkdelight.com for several years now. They are a Chinese company based near Hong Kong and sell all sorts of photographic goods from studio lighting right down to camera toys, and usually for prices almost too good to be true.
Unfortunately the service from this company ranges from bad to horrible. Firstly the packages I order from them in China often take a month to arrive (I am living in Okinawa, Japan which is pretty close!) to me, where as packages I order from the U.S and the U.K etc.. usually arrive within one business week. How can this be?
I recently ordered a good size package of photo related items for my fellow photographers at my company and was very disappointed to see that all the items were pretty dirty looking. They were covered in some kind of dust, boxes appeared to be in used condition and some items did not even work. Such as the Canon 5D mkII 4gb USB drive I made a video review of above. They asked me to send them images of the items which I did and they lost. So I sent them again along with this video which they also asked me to make.
I will not be recommending Linkdelight to my fellow photographers in the future unfortunately unless they can improve their horrible business skills and service.
An Australian photographer living on beautiful Okinawa island. I specialize in wedding photography, and shoot literally hundreds of weddings each year with my company Watabe Wedding. But I love to shoot a wide variety of subjects and also love teaching photography. I'm quite a gadget geek love to get the latest tech toys. When I'm not shooting weddings you'll find me practicing my craft in other ways, photographing my kids, Okinawa's amazing seascapes or listening to various photography podcasts.
