    You can get it at Alan Photo. But their price is based on RRP. So I won't be afraid to get from ah Beng shop as long as the price is the same.

    my screen is still at default factory settings, comparing to the image above, the LCD screen is brighter and more contrasty
    it seems to have a slight yellow tint on the highlights but the shadow areas are ok, let me adjust it first and update.

    actually hor, i come from film and shoot slow, i plan to shoot even slower with the D800, make full use of the DR
    so i will bracket. the LCD is only a visual guide for me, best to check the histogram instead
