    Just because I have a big camera doesn't mean I'm the one. I'm willing to bet 99% of the flashes at the event were from P&S users who have no idea how to switch off their flash.
    as mentioned earlier...i saw a 300D users using his inbuilt flash...and from a distance...i saw a flash going BLINK BLINK BLINK with a white lens attached. so...some of the big camera holders are the flash culprits too~

    If one is considerate enough and use their brain, they would surely try their best to find out how to switch off the little flash on the point and kill cameras.............

    You cannot blame the PnS crowd.Most of them are not hobby photographers, so please stop the holier-than-thou attitude.Some of them are just not informed.

    That's why I said 'if they use their brains' no-one has to tell them to switch off the flash..........you mean to say, that Singaporeans only will do things if they are told to? I am not too sure about this with this generation though..........:-)

    Use their brains?With regards to performance etiquette, how much of common sense does it take up?Not much.It's specialised information and not something that an old man or old woman in the street can visualise.

    Many will neither use their brain nor follow instructions or requests. How else to explain the number of handphones going off during performances or talks?

    If Singaporean photographers are inconsiderate, that merely reflects the Singaporean populace in general.

    Imagine during peak hour when you go to work. Inconsiderate nincompoop will still jam the right side of the escalator.

    ah well, ppl dun like big cameras somehow...

    Of cos, I'd really like to give some idiotic noob snappers a piece of my mind as well at times too. Dunno how to shoot, dunno how to operate, ppl tell u to turn off flash, dun use ur camera.

    Makes it better if those who dun understand English can leave their cameras at home.

    My tactic: Give a loud shout "EXCUSE ME!" and knock past them if they refuse to move after 3secs (regardless of their size).

    Thats true. Irrespective of whether they can read English or not, or whether they got listen to the annoucements and noe the rules or not, there is a sizeable number of P&S camera users who simply are not even aware that they can switch off their flash!

    If Singapore men were like Japanese men, there wouldn't be a problem, cause in Japan they all stand on the rightside (leftside in Osaka).................women are afraid to be pricked by Japanese men! (and men too).......

    Anyway, here in HK they also stand on the rightside........pretty disciplined here......

    Spare a tot for those guys on the beams lah...i am sure you can survive without good pics right?
