    1) you CANNOT aim thru the LCD screen in a DSLR...
    2) you CANNOT take movies with ur DSLR (no... 'M' is not movie mode. see below for definition)
    3) to be a real professional cameraman, use "P" mode (as in "Professional" mode)
    4) you DO NOT need VR/IS in your lens... after all, at f22, everything shld be sharp
    5) the standard setting for any pic to get the most perfect results - ISO1600, 1/4000sec, f22, mount on tripod (perferably Manfrotto 055 tripod and tie a brick to the center column and use MC-30 remote to trigger the shutter and mirror lock-up...phew...)
    6) no... by turning to AV mode doesn't make a Jap actress appear in ur viewfinder
    7) To take nice pictures, turn to "S". Sure to give you "swee" pictures.
    8) Remember to set camera to AF-C all the time... to give u "All Frame Chio" Pics
    9) btw... u do not cut ur film into little squares to stuff into the little slot marked 'CF'...
    10) for super sharp, super colours etc... pics, use 'M' mode. after all, 'M' stands for 'mou tuck teng'.... rite?
    11) how come no zoom in zoom out button??
    12) yes u need to buy a lens to shoot
    13) How much total Zoom can I get? (Digital + Optical)
    14) how come the QC so lousy, the lens can drop off?
    15) WHAT? Flash sold seperately?
    16) Why is the camera so big? Not smaller the better mah? Cannot put into pocket like credit card. Sian.
    17) Good pictures = sharp pictures.
    18) This small camera 7MP and so cheap! Your big camera 4MP and so expensive! Hahaha...
    19) My pictures from my small camera better den yours cos I no need to photoshop.
    20) Real professionals use film, cos cannot manipulate the image. Only lousy photographers use digital and photoshop, cos u can manipulate the image
    21) No, Kenko does not produce 3x teleconverter.
    22) Does it come in pink or blue?
    23) More megapixel better! The picture sharper! (and those $100 cameras boasting 100MPs beats 1DsMkII flat down. *sob*)

    5) the standard setting for any pic to get the most perfect results - ISO1600, 1/4000sec, f22, mount on tripod (perferably Manfrotto 055 tripod and tie a brick to the center column and use MC-30 remote to trigger the shutter and mirror lock-up...phew...)
    6) no... by turning to AV mode doesn't make a Jap actress appear in ur viewfinder
    7) To take nice pictures, turn to "S". Sure to give you "swee" pictures.

    24) This prosumer camera damn nice leh, but too big and heavy (the chap who said this ain't seeing nothin' yet... of pro-series SLRs, MFs and LFs)
    25) 1st minute: "Can shoot can liao". 2nd minute: "Aiyah, why dis one so lousy cannot do this har?"

    37) (Overheard at John 3:16) "What?! $200 for a flash?! This has got to be the most expensive flash in the whole world!!" (and the person who exclaimed this bought a goldfish for like... USD$500?)
    38) No need to read your Camera Manual or photography books. Just join Clubsnap and ask and ask and ask and ask and ask and ask and ask. Plus repeat that same questions in other thread for more effective result as well.
