    I bought it for SGD13+ after 10% discount about a mth plus ago

    eh! anyone knows what happened to all the 7 million dollar homes in singapore? i've visited the crumpler stores (all 3 of them: paragon, wheelock and raffles), and they all tell me its out of stock and they don't know when, if ever, it'll be shipped again. gah.

    and i so intelligently forgot to ask about the industry disgrace while i was at all 3 stores. any word on the latest price for that?

    Try visiting John 3:16 or TK Foto. I think they sell Crumpler camera bags slightly cheaper than Crumpler Boutiques here.

    I am blur when see the prices, saw someone posted last then 20buck!!! so cheap... some say 22.50 nett after UOB discount(which i believe)...

    I was at Crumpler Paragon ytd, for brown and black version, it is going at $25. Camo version is selling at $32.

    No discount (ask the salesgirl whether is there any discount on any credit card) and prices are nett...

    I can confirm my pricing as I brought camo version Yesterday.

    hmm just to check, the industry disgrace is a contoured strap right? so it provides better weight distribution?

    It could be I bought the industry disgrace during the GSS, so there was a special price. It was going for $15.50 before discount. Wow, it's double the price now... I bought both the camo and black at the same price, $13.95 after 10% discount

    wow... u got good deal, anyway now they are selling camo version higher, they say it is limited edition. I am thinking to buy brown and black too.. haha...

    Somehow i felt a bit disappointed, store like them shdnt have price like this. (no price diff in camo and normal version but increase prices after stating it is limited edition)

    I'm currently using a D300 with the grip. previously i was using the wrist grip as i find the neck strap very obstructive when shooting portrait with the grip. like the strap will dangle n like sorta drape in front of the viewfinder.

    is it a get used to it thing? or some of u guys dont even use any straps. i'm thinking of that though it might be a lil risky.

    thx

    One of the Op/Tech strap neck strap configurations allows you to detatch the main strap so that it forms a much shorter wrist strap. Sort of dual-purpose.

    is it user friendly? like realli able to detach easily but yet is strong n firm one. maybe ill go check it out. coz like the wrist grip feels realli weird with the batt grip. so i'm using the neck strap now but dont realli feel comfortable shooting with it. + looks like tourist.

    Well it's pretty easy to use, and the buckle attaches firmly. Here's a quick picture taken of what I mean:



    The strap can be adjusted. I've given it enough slack so it sort of wraps once around my wrist.

    is the buckle firm? i don't want my camera tumbling into a free fall wihtout a parachute suddenly, cause i have a habit of resting my forearm on my camera while slinging it diagonally across my chest.

    John 3:16 doesn't carry crumpler products, but samuel does take orders that he delivers in ABOUT 2 days. and his prices are alot cheaper than the prices at crumpler botiques. 7 million dollar home he quoted me $150 yest, compared to raffles city crumpler, $18X.

    anyone know any place that sells the Crumpler Complete Seed (with bucket insert)? Crumpler sells it REALLLY expensive. ($180 for the bag, $97 for the bukcet insert)
