I think that he meant that the brazing process isn't cheap or easy to do at high volume. had nothing to do with the price or profit.

It took me a while to realize this but there are two companies making Aliens these days: Fixe and Totem Cams.

You can get the Fixe cams at Rock & Snow for $80. They have Blue, Green, Yellow, Gray and Red.

Totem Basic Cams are pretty much only available online for $60 with free shipping to the US (and 10% off if you order 5 or more). They have Green, Yellow, Red plus two Hybrid sizes.

It's been hypothesized that Totem can sell them cheaper since there's no middleman. Of course, pricing & mfr cost don't always go hand in hand, take cell phones or the Xbox. Sometimes pricing is set to drive demand or to drive out other competitors. TI Calculators is a classic business case for driving pricing to create volume which in turn drives mfr economies of scale.

That's 60 EUR not $60. 60 EUR is more like $80 as of today.

If you click on English at the top of the page you get prices in dollars. That's what I see, at least.
