    Hi harnamsc,

    unfortunately we don't hold any Sony equipment here at the moment, we are still building up stock. The guys in CRC Singapore do have Sony gear though. Maybe you might want to check with them?

    You coming here to study I suppose?

    Yah, this year's spring siao one. Lurching between winter and summer and raining buckets instead of the mild springs I've been used to. Pollen count really gets to me too, it almost caused a chest infection couple of weeks back when I was sick with the flu

    Mike I'm amazed that there is a service for renting camera stuff. Could have tried out the Nikon 7000!
    Enlighten me...

    Hi MRSAMO, are you still in Australia? Or in Japan? If you're planning to pop into Melbourne any time you're always welcome to hit us up for a D7000!

    Me? Study? No way mate. I'm migrating. I got my Aussie PR and I'm flying soon.

    I don't think I'll have time to check with CRC Singapore. I'll probably take a closer look at the Sony A33 and A55 once I'm in Melbourne.

    Nice. Made the big move four years ago. Melbourne's a brilliant place to be for the most part. You'll love it!

    Nevermind, if there's anything you'd like, you know who to ask! We don't have a shop (yet) but its certainly in our future plans.

    More space, less people, easier-going lifestyle, nicer weather (mostly). I understand that these are quite subjective and might not everyone's cup of tea, but it works for me.

    Don't get me wrong, Singapore will always be home and to me (and the Mrs) there's always a bond to SG, and in some areas Aust loses out to SG, but I'm very happy here at this point in time.

    Just as MikeY has said, I agree to the much greater space (a lifetime of adventure holidays just within Victoria state), lesser crowds, more relaxed slower pace of life, cooler drier weather (good for some people with skin problems and no fungi growth in cameras/lenses), fresher food, cheap good wine (red for antioxidants, etc.

    People are also more open-minded and less judgemental of what you do or what principles you live by. There is very little pressure to conform to a social mold and peer pressure. Having said that, you can shoot nude/erotic portraits without making news headlines.

    I agree that this spring's hay fever was really bad. It was the first time I got affected.

    Otherwise, I think any hay fever still does not compare to being in a country where I can photograph nude/erotic and scenic landscape images to my heart's content. Never will Singapore be able to provide this kind of freedom and environment.

    I don't think the seafood is that cheap anymore. Judging by the state of our oceans and natural fish stocks, scientists have recently predicted that we won't have any fish left to catch in about 20-30 years' time.

    Interesting responses, did you guys have to renounce your sing. passport?

    - I agree that pollen in Australia is pretty bad, worst in the UK
    - Less people in Melbourne compared to Sydney for sure but not the most predictable bunch
    - Driving anywhere and sightseeing in Australia has to be better than Singapore
    - More opportunities for photographers

    But what I also like about Singapore
    - Better weather definitely, hayfever friendly and a little more predictable
    - Food! Cheaper and just as good
    - Much safer
    - Sim Lim square lol, its not fantastic but convenient to do all your shopping in one place
    - Cleaner...usually
    - Better public transport
    Enlighten me...

    Yeah I got the same problem as you, have you tried nasal spray?

    Just bought a humidifier and it makes a difference in my room. Worried about the effects of wet air with my PC and camera stuff so I cover them now.

    It work for the nose..but for not the windpipe sadly. When u reach the same sensitivity as me, humidifier actually make it worse due to the moist air coagulating the disintegrated pollen (intact pollen doesn't cause the hayfever, as it's too large to enter ur eyes and so on) to serve as a more potent delivery of much higher quantity. Hence, the thunderstorm asthma last week. My advise for those people who stay here for long term, please get the desensitization jab. The response will get worse every yr, just a matter of how bad it is. It would not get better. Mine has increased exponentially~
