  1. I was curious if anyone has successfully created a single bodied housing for their anamorphic setup? I would imagine 3D printing would be the easiest, but if someone used a fabricator to create a housing for their taking lens, anamorphic, clamps and singular follow focus.
  2. It's definitely past the timeframe that I gave ES to repay me and he is not responding to any of my messages. I emailed the school of Dentistry about what happened, and have contacted his brother. So far nothing. I would recommend contacting 5D to warn them. He even recently posted about buying a new rig soon, probably from the money from all the EOSHD guys http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=30545.msg615042#msg615042
  3. Alright, many members of the forum kept up with the charades that happened with Ebrahim Saawadi (one of the highest contributors on EOSHD) on this link: It was an extensive mystery case involving a scam that 3 members (myself included) paid for a SLR Magic Rangefinder for a cheap price, from a "trusted" member. He took approximately $250 each from Timotheus and Tomas, and $340 from myself for the item. Long story short, he got away without paying anyone their money back. He eventually sent the rangefinder to Tim and Tom, which turned out to be a test type (that had unusual thread sizes" that wouldn't work on most DSLR's as the original does. We got scammed. Just a friendly reminder that even "trusted" members can still be criminals trying to rip you off. Be aware of the many profiles and personas that Ebrahim Saawadi has on this forum, and more importantly, DO NOT TRUST HIM! Here are two different profiles that I am aware of: http://www.eoshd.com/comments/profile/33816-ebrahim-saadawi/ http://www.eoshd.com/comments/profile/20775-ebrahim-saadawi/ Stay alert folks, and learn from my mistake. P.S. Thank you all forum members that participated in the most interesting posts I have seen on this forum. Especially those trying to help make things right between those involved.
  4. Nope. He hasn't paid me in the agreed time frame (which was more than enough), and he isn't responding to my emails now. Keeping you informed, Ebrahim has not paid me in the agreed amount of time (1 month). He is now not responding to emails, and I doubt he is going to comment on this post again. I guess he made off with about $850 USD. and really tried everything to get out of repaying people.
  5. As we near the end of the timeframe of agreed upon payments, I keep getting the same responses from Ebrahim that I received when I was supposed to get the Rangefinder. It's a lot of, "WU was closed today...tomorrow I swear", then I don't hear anything for a couple of days. I expected this. He has a couple more days to actually send me the money, which doesn't look like that's going to happen, or at least all of the money. Just keeping Andy posted.
  6. J89drummond@gmail.com I've emailed the info you previously gave me, but no response from that as well. Also, you've created a new account, so you could have just messaged me from this one.
  7. True, but WHEN that happens, then I'll let you guys do your thing. PATIENCE PEOPLE!!!
  8. Guys... calm down. I am sorting some stuff out with E.S. Yes, I am unsure if I will actually get my money. We can AT LEAST give him a day to send the RF to Tim and Thomas. As for myself, I can wait a couple days to receive a payment. If I don't, I already have my legal documents together with all of his information/scanned ID, written confession, and handwritten confirmation. I will take it to the authorities if he tries to keep my money.
  9. EOSHD peeps: I have sorted out some payment issues with Ebrahim Saawadi, and the other guys came to an agreement. This was one hell of a thread folks. Lots of mystery and confusion, and a lot of creative stories. I hope I get my money back as soon as possible. I have a hand written letter confirming that he will, in fact, pay me what he owns me. We can drop it. Everyone will get their payments, and E.S. owned up to the dilemma. That's it. What a crazy thread.
  10. From what I've read, I believe the same thing. Just Jr.
  11. hahah true. I've had a few moments here and there to gander at it. Trying to get caught up. This shit blew up way more than I thought it would. On FB, it was only 15 people who responded. This is a little bigger. Thanks for clarifying.
  12. Very true. I mean, I have addresses and numbers that I had to fill out in order to send him money, but we all know from scams that they could be fake.
