    If I looking for 'no need to PS images out of cam' I would have gone for the original Canon 1D liao. Really sharp and great images direct from cam. But yah the 1h is still a good cam, I know a couple of friends who are still using it.

    3) Nobody, NOBODY knows their own equipment as well as the original equipment manufacturer
    4) Battery life & design is not consistent cross batches (that's why some say XYZ is good, some say the same XYZ battery is bad)
    5) Professional batteries comes with IC chips to detect charging & calibration, 3rd party don't

    Sometimes somethings cannot scrimp.
    Ok, point taken. But still at $180 still seems pretty steep for a battery lor.

    If the camera costs $5-7K, is it really steep? I think it's justifiable, I'm complaining steep because I know I can get cheaper than $180... even if I urgently need now, I will still get the $180 rather than 3rd party.

    No two ways about it.
