    Default Recommended best place to get Canon S3IS?



    Hi guys, my S2 just got stolen last week, and I've been itching to get an S3 for my projects/events coming up soon.

    Anyone has any good places to recommend on best prices / good deals for this camera?

    I checked out these 2 places at Vivocity yesterday:
    Best Denki - $799, Free 512 SD, Rechgable Batts
    Challenger - $799 + Negotiable, Free 512 SD, Casing, Cleaning Kit, Tripod

    Will the offers at Funan Ctr / Sim Lim be better?

    Pls help! Thankssss

    Bro.. I've juz got my S3 less than 3 days ago.. I went to MS color le.. They quote me $705 which comes wif 512mb card, 4 X re-chargeable batt plus free charger for the batt... but th e free gift muz collect from canon @ harbourfront.. I think they are selling at quite a reasonable price with excellence service.. Many of the CS users buy from there too if I'm nt wrong...

    The guy there was trying to sell me the Lens Adapter Hood Set LAH DC20 for $50, cos he said that this item probably might not be made anymore in future, and is essential if i wanna add wide angle / telephoto lenses.

    he also mentioned wide angle lens = macro lens.... true/not true?

    I'm a fan of macro photography, and i know the camera on its own has limited macro ability. I seem to have problems focusing/getting a sharp image when i put it to super macro mode...

    Am I doing anything wrong?
