Typically Amazon has very competitive prices for almost everything they sell including photography gears. However I just found this $193.89 Nikon MC-23 10-pin cable for simultaneous shutter release on two connected SLR cameras. That’s a ridiculous price for such a low tech item. Most reasonable places sell it for a far more reasonable price, for example, $74.95 at B&H. However you can buy compatible item on eBay for even cheaper price.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, which means you could be getting something inferior at lower price. Often the matter of the fact is that manufacturers and retailers are reaping fat profits from the sales of accessories. It appears that common sense is winning: More people are buying the $0.08 HDMI cable instead of the name brand that costs a whole lot more.
