I'm glad you seemed to like my i am not making this up post, but I have an addendum.
I did find or think I found a adapter for my ring flash. It can be had via eBay from Illinois. Or so I thought.
I do have the tendency to not read the fine print. You see I thought it was coming from Illinois, but somehow, eBay decided that that should be my shipping address. Quite a mistake for a guy who lives in a whole different country.
In point of fact, it must come from China, so I notified them and asked if they could change the shipping address. Nope. Not possible. But they could cancel that order.
It's been days, and I haven't yet summoned the gumption to try again. I guess I have been rather hoping that the Canadian website of this company would begin to actually, you know, function properly. But after days, their contact page still doesn't actually contact, and there appears to be no other method. Click their email link, and it just reverts to that dead-end contact page. And round and round we go.
In the meantime, I have also tried to track said item closer to home via Amazon but without success (does this surprise anybody anymore?), so I will likely go through the rigmarole of re-ordering it from China. But once I do, it will be put on a very slow boat and will more than likely take a month or two to get here. On top of that, Canada Post has been under rotating strikes, so who knows how that will play into the the actual delivery date?
PS: Now ordered. Might be delivered by the end of February. I still had to make sure to change my default shipping address from Marion Somebody in Illinois Somewhere to Me, Here.
