    On a sidenote, do remember to check on the batteries when you're buying your sets/extra batteries for the recall units.

    Bought a battery from one of the more reputable "Funan stores" (not AP/CP), and got a affected battery without knowing. Tried to exchange it within the 7 day grace and they just dissed it off as my problem. They didn't know about this (had to point them to the advisory), and even had the cheek to tell straight in my face that "if the battery's dead, we'll exchange it for you, but for this, you need to go to the agent"...

    Should call NSC and ask them abt the changing policy. If the shop is responsible, report the shop

    As stated in many reviews, this cam is unforgiving when at high magnification level... what looks sharp on the cam LCD is nt so when u view it on ur pc monitor..
    Do not have anything to compare with for the 24-120 so its very hard for me to say (not sure if any prob its with the lens, the cam or the user!).

    "what looks sharp on the cam LCD is nt so when u view it on ur pc monitor.."

    Keep in mind that you should also view the pc monitor a little further away compared to your normal viewing distance. You will see a marked improvement. Pretty much the same effect as viewing a large poster close up compared to viewing it a couple of metres away.

    BTW, which shop in Penang?

    Does anyone know if this bluetooth GPS unit below (called BlueSLR) is available in Singapore and where I may purchase it? It looks pretty cool. Very unobtrusive, stick it onto the 10-pin connector and it gets GPS geotags from your iPhone, iPod, iPad. Then all the EXIF data will have GPS data.

    If not this, what GPS solution do you use? I find the hotshoe version so bulky. Not having GPS data also feels incomplete when viewed in the Mac's iPhoto (can't sort by Places)

    Can try this, at each new location take a picture with your iPhone, then transfer the gps data to your dslr images later

    It works as expected. The protector for the top screen fits in very well and is flush with the top plate. One can't tell that there is a protector on :-) As with these type of protector, there is a little more reflection than the original screen.

    Thanks Ortega. What software do you use to transfer the data? Or do you mean just Copy and Paste Location in iPhoto?

    Thanks for this. It looks like a serious product by a serious company which makes things for the military. Certainly better than blueSLR at first glance. May check this out.

    see this, using iPhoto, aperture can do it too

    To copy the location of one photo to other photos:

    You can copy the location of one photo to another photo or photos.


    • Select a photo that has the location assigned to it that you want to copy, and then choose Edit > Copy.
    • Select one or more photos that you want to assign the same location to, and choose Edit > Paste Location.
      The location is added to the photos, which you can then view using Places.
