    sell main item (camera) at reasonable or low price, make u feel that the shop/saleman is good/generous...later KONG u back in ACCESSORIES. Typical sale tactic in Malaysia and Singapore. So...buy only what u want, and make sure u have surveyed price for all stuff u intended to buy.

    Just a note to other potential buyer.

    If I were you, I would go around asking about how much each item cost elsewhere. What's the point? If paid higher, bang balls, and felt depressed. If lower, so? Can improve photo skills? Either way, it's unproductive use of the brain.

    I don't see the point of people questioning my equipment purchases. Chances are, before someone out there rush out to buy an expensive equipment, he probably has done much more researching. So there's a reason justifiable for the lad to spend his fortune on. Everyone has their own needs. So let it be then and happy with the purchase.

    Just don't end up being an equipment collector and a lousy photographer, worst, a photographer with no personality and style.

    Congrats on your much envy puchases.

    Yes, I agree with Megaweb, give Eadwine a break. I am sure he knows what he is doing and done. Probably he got a better service from CP now and in the future.

    Eadwine, congrats on your new toy. Just remember to make your new toys worth the investment. That's the most important thing. Just make sure that the next time you go back to CP, tell James abt all these price quote that you know....probably he can give you some discount here and there.....so in the long run, you will not lose out.

    Just shoot! shoot! shoot!

    We buy a camera to take photos, not to worry about where we could have gotten it cheaper.

    The joy of taking photos will pay itself ten-fold.

    See, Eadwine is probably now busy reading his manual, maybe even outside, shooting the lightning and rain...

    Geez, looks like it's gonna pour again this evening.

    Eadwine... seems like you have disturbed the balance of the force.

    Nonetheless, i'm happy for you and your purchase. Now, ignore all the price chatter, focus on your shooting. May this new tool be a worthy extension to your creativity.

    Eadwine, congratulations on your purchase.

    Er, to recoup your losses, maybe can sell your Sony cam and get other accessories?

    By the way, the BP 511 (512?) OEM, Megapower, is selling $35 per piece at AP.

    I think you still need to buy 1 more battery.
