    You'll want to find out what "on order" means.

    Re: Calumet shutter tester

    I'm still waiting for mine from Calumet.

    I saw one sell on eBay used for more than Calumet sells them new. That might mean something.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Re: Calumet shutter tester

    I ordered one of these new from Calumet about 4 months ago. They said it was back ordered when I placed my order. After about 3 months, I received an e-mail that something was being shipped to me from Calumet. For the life of me, I couldn't remember what I had ordered. To my surprise a shutter tester arrived. So, yes they still make these things new, but you have to be patient.

    Best,

    John

    I ordered mine March 23, 2007, and haven't received it yet. I've contacted them several times and, the last time, was told it would ship in two weeks. That was at least three weeks ago, and still no product.

    I ordered mine about 3 months ago and got a note it was back-ordered with expected delivery in September. I cancelled that one and just paid almost new for an obviously used one on eBay...

    It took a couple of months to get mine; I think they are custom made in small batches.

    It was worth the wait; very easy to use.

    It's great to get everyone's personal experience.

    I also asked Calumet. I got an email from them saying the delays are due to part shortgages. I put an order for one (the last one that sold on eBay went for very close to the new price.)
