    Cathay only sells proprietry flashes (or so they tell me la) so don't bother. MS Color & AP SLS don't have meh? Maybe u have to place an order with MS. AP might be just nice outta stock. I bought mine from AP SLS... $55. Maybe u can try asking them? Or search the Buy & Sell Forum here... especially those selling their FZ20s... haha!

    Try TCW at the Peninsula Shopping centre. They might have stock. Look for Nelson or Daniel.

    Cheers....

    I bought mine for $55 from the funan branch... think I was quoted $65 or something. Told the guy that I read from the forum that people got it for $55... and he gave me that price without much bargaining.

    a little off topic, but does anyone know where i can buy inexpensive flash mounting brackets?

    is there a general price guide, and the types i can choose from?

    the one which came with my emoblitz broke. thanks in advance.

    Yeah. Go there first. I had surveyed Funan and Peninsular Plaza for my Sunblitz flash (equivalent to Emoblitz) half a year ago and found that AP at Sim Lim gave the best price: S$65. Noticed Emoblitz flashes were being sold in the same shops surveyed too. The Sunblitz flash came with its own metal flash bracket.. that's why I chose it over the Emoblitz.

    But be warned: it's a very limited capability auto flash. It has just one aperture settings for its auto mode: f/2.8. Auto mode at just f/2.8 will most likely underexpose most of your pics. You'll need to tape up its light sensor with a semi-transparent paper to lower its sensitivity to some lower f-stop number. I got fed up of this inflexibility and needed a higher Guide Number flash later so I bought the Sunpak 383 from BHPhoto.com later.

    I have to agree with what cjtune has said in regards to the capability of the Emoblitz...
