    Hmm why don;t u take a trip down and see wats at the various photo shop ?? (Cathay) A tripod is a gd addtion but u got to lug it ard but it will enable u to take pictures with slow shutter speed without problems.

    For me i have a Velabon cx888 tripod (which has a quick release) works for me !!!

    UV filter $8 got liao...
    tripod u can get those $40 ones since ur 800 not too heavy... those weird brands like tanner on sale in safe etc are quite ok with a lot of weird features like spirit level and quick release...
    spend ur money on batts n mem instead

    i dun agree to get cheapo tripods. they're not stable. i'd rather spend more on a good tripod and use it perm than get one lousy one that fails. my fren bought hers for $35. the quick release broke after around 3 uses. Luckily her cam was not in it! IF you are more serious into photography then a tripod should be one of your main investments :> get rechargable batts...they help save in the long run too.
    Believe it. And it will be so.

    i just bought a canon A40...also looking to buying some accessorries like filters and adaptor.

    but how do i know which kind of adaptors are suitable ?
    and roughly how much does a PL cost?
    thinking of a +3 or 4 macro lens too^^|

    actually.....I dunno how to use it la....but must try then know mah^^ from some site i read that PL u have to turn .....until u get the result u want.

    and should I get a UV filter to protect my lens?

    if I get a camera bag ...should I get a camera pouch then?

    I got a tripod but is those cheap one lor... when keeping is 30cm, stretch to 105cm, no quick release. 500g ......got this cost I need to take it to hk .....so tot this is quick good liao , considering the size and height ...althought I at times still find it not tall enough!

    got 2 x 128MB CF cards + 8MB CF...should be enough for my 6days trip to hk right?

    there is original n oem lens adapter, original cost ard $35 ~ 38, oem cost ard $22 ~ 25. There only +4 macro cost ard $15.

    actually.....I dunno how to use it la....but must try then know mah^^ from some site i read that PL u have to turn .....until u get the result u want.

    What is PL??? Polariser issit?

    and should I get a UV filter to protect my lens?

    Yes, if possible

    if I get a camera bag ...should I get a camera pouch then?

    if u get a UV filter n len adapter, a pouch is not big enought liao

    I got a tripod but is those cheap one lor... when keeping is 30cm, stretch to 105cm, no quick release. 500g ......got this cost I need to take it to hk .....so tot this is quick good liao , considering the size and height ...althought I at times still find it not tall enough!

    got 2 x 128MB CF cards + 8MB CF...should be enough for my 6days trip to hk right?

    2 x 256 + 8 = 266mb, after formating left ard 260, when taken in the highest resolution, take it as 1mb per pic. 260/6 = 43 pic per day.

    u may want to bring along a CF card reader, n upload. No more worry liao...

    if u get a UV filter n len adapter, a pouch is not big enought liao

    I know...but i was wondering if i were to put the camera inside the camera gbag...do i still need a camera pouch?^^|


    2 x 256 + 8 = 266mb, after formating left ard 260, when taken in the highest resolution, take it as 1mb per pic. 260/6 = 43 pic per day.
