    x-ray safe bag .. try cp or eastgear? .. would think they would have ... simple solution is to get the film washed there .. but not cut or printed. bring home to S'pore to print ... should be cheaper .. and easier

    solution to tripod ... small table tripod? - strong enough for your cam? ... may not be ... so other solution is to get a small beanbag .. .just find a place to put it .. and it can work wonders =)

    Thank you very much everyone for the congrat and advise.

    I will check with my wife whether we should bring the tripod or not. Ultimately, I wouldn't want to quarrel with her during our honeymoon over a tripod.

    Any idea how much does a polariser would cost and are there different kinds?

    many many different kinds of polorisers ... depending on the mount size ... probably 50++-- ?

    Hi kevyan,

    mine is a HOYA circular polariser. Can't remember the cost but think it's about 30+?

    Personally I think a tripod is still necessary for some nice evening/night shots. Dump it in the car (if you are renting one) so that you can use it when required.

    Good luck for your honeymoon!

    X-ray bags are useless because

    1 They will crank up the radiation to see what is inside anyway!

    2 Otherwise they will ask to to take put the films, and having seen the films, they will pass them through the scanners a second time. I am not a professional, but I have hundreds of rolls of black & white and color films, both slides and negatives passed through these scanners. I do not see any color shift of any relevance,

    You will want to have memories images, and hopefully some other images too. I would think that you seriously consider a light tripod. I have been married many years, and in my travels with my wife, I always bring a tripod for those many occasions when we want to have both of us in the same image. Hence the tripod. Not really for fantastic landscape type situations. But you may find it useful at night, such as taking pictures of both of you in a romantic restaurant or.........

    Eh... meaning that, if I know the mount size, I can just buy any polariser?

    Or are there different kind of polariser with different functions?

    Polariser serves only to polarise light. There are specialist polarisers that most people have never heard of, and I don't think it is relevant at this stage.

    get any one. My suggestion is that if you want the Hoya ones, ask for the model that is of a better grade. the cheaper one can cause color **** big time! If cost is not a problem, B+W is a very safe bet.

    Huh?! So, no point buying X-ray bag? Man.... I need some more advise.
    I will for sure be using my SLR, and not digital because I only have 128MB MS.

    Don't confuse yourself too much! Photographers have been carry their films without x-ray pouches for donkey years. When I travel, I seldom leave without less than 50-60 rolls of films. And I have no problems that I can detect.

    no need for xray bag. if u're scare of the xray u can ask the custom to check the film 1 by 1

    most important is have fun traveling and worry less about small small things like "what to buy". no point buying this buying that and spend lots of time trying to figure out how to use them over there while your wife wait, then u have to sleep living room when u come back

    Hi all, I just bought my HOYA polariser from CP, cost me $40.

    I have some questions. Anyone of you use the polariser together withe the UV guard lens? 2 lenses together.

    I was also told be the sales person from CP, that it is a must to have polariser on when doing outdoor shoot. So, what if I move back into indoor, can I still shoot with the polariser lens on? Will it affect the pictures taken?

    ! Don't stack filters if you can help it. Every additional air/glass interface theorectically degrades image quality. Another problem with stacking filters espcially withe wide angle lenss is vignetting

    2 It is absolute nonsense that it is a must to have a polariser on when photographing outdoors.I hope others can explain this. Polariser reduces light by two stops, and if you photograph indoor wih your polariser, you jolly well use a tripod. The only reason for using a polariser indoors is to reduce glare from the shining fork and spoon.
