    Default Where to buy portable TV?

    Anyone know where can i buy a portable TV? Any brands to go for? And which shop stocks a wide range of it.

    I need one to bring overseas. Prefer AA size type batt. How to choose a suitable one? What features to go for? Average price?

    Many thanks.

    Go to Sim Lim and see. Casio is one brand. There are others. It all depends on your screen size preference.

    i got a question as well, since some digital camera can preview on TV, which portable tv with ok colors, relatively small size, relatively viewable screen... how much is the cost & which brand/model?

    cos when doing overhead shoot in the tent, can't view using the DSLR.

    I don't think this is possible. It is not meant for that so there is no audio/video in jack. Unless they have started putting these in now. I may be wrong but all the ones I used before does not have it.

    Yup...there are a couple of electronic shops with lots of fridges. Usually, you just need to walk in and ask if they have stock of portable TVs. They just don;t showcase them. CHeers!
