Dear fellow photogs,
I am leaving for Japan this coming Friday with my family for a 7-day trip holiday. This is my first time going to Japan and I do have some doubts regarding certain "technical issues".
1. I'm traveling with a tour group so sadly, my itineary is all planned out. We will visit usual tourist spots such as Mount Fuji, Disneyland etc. Will visit Kobe, Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka.
Will be bringing my DSLR. Should I bring my fish-eye along? My fisheyes happens to be a diopter lens.
2. I understand their electricity current voltage/watt/whatever you call it is different from ours. If I'm not wrong, they are using NTSC and we are using PAL. So isizt going to cause any inconvenience if I need to charge my iPod/batteries there? They are not going to explode right?
3. I am also aware that we cannot use our handphones there too. But I am planning to bring my phone there because of its currency-exchange functions. My math is just too lousy (I can't go mental calculations for nuts) and I find calculators too tacky, therefore, I find my phone is a much better disguise. And as we all know how expensive things can get in Japan, I wanna make sure before I buy something. So just wanna ask if I reach there and switch on my mobile, it's not going to explode or something, right? It will also mean that I can't receive any SMS/calls if anyone in Singapore were to call my number right?
4. What is the one thing I must take note when I'm in Japan in your opinion?
