    Aputure supply issues - where to buy?

    While Aputure continues to roll out new lights, I just want a spotlight mount for my existing lights......which seems to be out of stock everywhere on the planet.

    Any suggestions on where I should put my backorder in? Filmtools? B&H?

    How long have people been waiting to receive Aputure orders through 3rd party retailers?

        In the UK we can't get fuel or food but we can get Aputure products. Stock everywhere from what I see. Maybe the oil spill in Huntington Beach is affecting supply??

          I just had to fill up my truck today(diesel) and it was almost $150. I think I'm paying around $50 more per fill-up than during the pandemic last year. And it's gone up at least .25/gallon or more in the last week or two. As far as food(I use the term loosely), I've been in several convenience stores lately that looked like they had been raided by roaming bands of survivors of the zombie apocalypse looking for any kind of sustenance, at all. Especially certain brands, like Coca-Cola.

              General gist of the issue... CA instituted new fuel efficiency standards for diesel trucking in Oct. 2020. This effectively took half of the heavy trucking fleet off the road, and overburdened the other half. Since then, shipping containers have been slowly amassing in CA ports because there are fewer trucks to move them out and on to their destinations... full receiving ports are resorting to plopping containers in nearby streets, blocking people into their driveways in some cases. Trucking companies are using their limited "CA compliant" fleet to take shipments from the ports to the CA borders where they are then moved to other trucks that convey them across the rest of the US. The backlog in CA has led to shipping also being diverted to other ports that aren't built for the overload, stressing them as well... or being sent to the other coast through the Panama Canal, which is time-consuming and expensive, and also creating backlogs in those ports because so much of the supply chain used to rely on cheap and efficient transport through CA. A container that used to cost about ~$4K to ship last year now costs ~$17K, and ships are waiting weeks to unload.

              This is the price of the "Green New Deal" in very visible terms: a worthwhile end goal instituted in a blitz of foresightless idealogical incompetence. Oh well... should we expect more from a state where it takes less official paperwork to vote than to get a cheeseburger?

                Same. Fuel is generally up 50% or more nationwide. Also noting plenty of empty shelves through my various travels this year.
