Now I know that is a VERY general title, and obviously not everyone here acts in such a way. But I have contacted so many people with a part I need that they have for sale, and they are asking double for it. Why do we need to take advantage? From one RED brother to another, wouldn't you want to help one out in being able to use their camera?
Good business brings return customers, new and dear friends, and great word of mouth. I bought a scarlet. I have had it for a while ( like most ) and not been able to use it at all. I am a realist. I know that "that's what you get when you buy RED.." That is not my issue here. I have found numerous side handles, redmotes, and touch's for sale on here. Almost every person I have dealt with (EXCEPT for Chris G, He charged me ACTUAL cost plus shipping) has wanted to charge double or MORE for their part. I ask them if they could just make a few hundred for profit, but they say " Nah man, That's the price. Period."
Some of these people had more than one of each item. I understand making a profit too, but double? Doesn't seem honest to me. You'd hope we can help each other out ( which many of us do) by throwin some love out to other RED owners, while also building a better community.. ( Our community is somewhat of a joke to other communities, do to this elitist mentality)
