    Only buy what u need, not what others can tell u. Would be better if u first find out more about your new cam and read up on the accessories in nikon's range b4 deciding on what u need.

    Actually the only "must-buy" I would recommend is dry cabinet, because Singapore weather is humid and not good for glasses, mirrors, coatings, etc. Then after that, get a good quality tripod and thats about what u need to start with.

    There are many MUST-DOs, like READ the manual, SHOOT, READ again, SHOOT again,.....

    In short, there is a learning curve!

    agree totally with yapel. u must learn to work the settings (e.g. WB, tone, sharpening, AF options, exposure settings, aperture) in order to maximise the image quality.

    Sometimes they have this offer that if you buy above S$100, free delivery to your home. Check with their info counter whether they still have the offer when you are there.

    i not really like the infra red stuff. when i am shooting macro or mouting my camera on tripod, i have to point the remote in front of the camera or the sensor. if i have the wired cord, i dont need to do that and i can just look at the viewfinder and press as i wish. just like the old time i used the cable release.
