    MY ADVICE IS FOR YOU TO GO AND BUY ONE, THE LIGHTEST BUT DONT NEED THE HIGH END TYPE. IT WILL LAST YOU A LONG LONG TIME. AND THE NEXT TIME YOU NEED ONE, YOU DONT HAVE TO WASTE TIME TO ASK AROUND AND DECIDE HERE AND THERE.

    Not sure if your capslock is broken. Try to observe some simple net etiquette and not to type in all caps please. Thank you.

    I have seen people bring DSLR though it is clearly stated no photography. Majority are filming with their smartphones anyway. But my suggestion is just go and enjoy. The last one I went to, the crowd was on their feet most of the time. I think for Jay Chou will be the same.

    Technology will only get better and cheaper over time. Buy only when you really need it.

    We are seeing Google glass. Maybe near future you can magnify view in your glasses.

    Err, some of the binoculars we used in Our Army are pretty advanced.

    Gyroscopically stabilized with optional forward looking infrared (flir) and night vision (nv) optical attachments and a holographic display with information provided by integrated on-board sensors such as accelerometer, GPS, inclinometer, laser rangerfinder, magnetometer. Some can even be data linked to target designators, tagging airstrike objectives for laser guided bomb (lgb).

    Excellent discussion and very useful links. It's a waste to reside in Kopitiam sub-forum.
    Suggest move to newbies and make into a sticky for future reference.
