But I am not willing to do what Adorama has just asked me to do. They've gone too far. Here's the email that I just received from them:
To help make Adorama a friendly place to shop, we enable shoppers to ask our customers questions about the products they bought - because sometimes input from a fellow customer is the most helpful.
A shopper is looking for an answer from a fellow customer about Manfrotto 2-Pack Replacement Screws (Set of 2-Viti 1/4 ) for QR Plate 501PL and 410PL. Since you bought Miller Fixed Length 16mm Pan Handle with Handle Carrier for 75mm Fluid Heads., a similar item, on September 26, 2010, we thought you might be able to help.
|A shopper asked: Are these screws threads 1/4-20 ?|

Adorama is too lazy to reply to questions about its products itself? Now Adorama's customers are being asked to take time out of their day to answer questions so that Adorama can save time? This is too much. Me no like. I say "Boo" to this email from Adorama.
And by the way, while I have recently purchased things from Adorama and been happy with their delivery times and service, this has not always been the case in the past. Back in the film days, I ordered 500 film canisters from them for duping film. They made me wait weeks and weeks and weeks. I finally gave up on them and ordered from another source. Soon after getting the film canisters from that second source, Adorama finally sent me my first order. I still have the 500 film canisters sitting in my garage.
I heartily recommend B & H Photo for anything photographic. They've never let me down. And I've never gotten the kind of email from them like the one above. The other retailers that I recommend are Allen’s Camera in Levittown, PA and Reef Photo in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
