    Do your own homework. That's the main point.
    Good lesson for you actually. Accessories (especially china made ones) are usually a lot cheaper in SG than in USA.
    Accessories in SG are even cheaper than JB, they get dinged with import duty for accessories, but tax free on cameras and lenses.

    Of course, accessories are cheapest in China.

    Thanks, a bit more homework, a little more money saved.
    I can't blame anyone for not sharing the prices locally earlier.
    Anyway, I almost didn't get the tripod in USA delivered to me, so it's ok, I will enjoy using it for Iceland and my home theatre system.

    Anyway if anyone has more tips for Iceland, please let me know?

    Targeting mid Sept, and 5 nights, based in the capital.
    Cheers

    Thanks for all the advice.
    Just FYI
    The tripod is an essential piece of gear, and will help to get great pics..
    This year is a good one for pics, and December this year is a very good time to shoot...
    I placed my tips here:
