    except for some new bundles, the rest is same old same old.. nothing that u can't get from SLS, prices $10~ diff... I think finally the sex-sells is getting old.. no one stalked the camera girls for pictures
    HP had the largest humongous displays, PCs (office HP and home Compaq), cameras, printers, etc.

    Or maybe because, the girls this time round is not worth stalking or that they are the same ones in previous shows and every one is tired of seeing the same faces each time.

    either they cut costs and engage those "disappointed camera girls". maybe also the itshow is like pasar malan, so crowded and not much class compared to maybe the photoshow, so be patience and wait for the girls to appear in the next photoshow, and also most probably the autoshow.
    i also didn't notice any camera girl that is outstanding, not like the previous show.

    lauLEE, the British English dictionaries do not have the word because it's an American word.

    Humongous means big or huge.

    Quite surprising and was not really sure whether would it ever happen, but it did.

    CANON HAS A DISPLAY OF THE NEW CANON EOS 1D MARK II

    It is located at the front of where all the canon cameras are displayed. Of course there is no way to try that camera out. The representative there would give plenty of reasons why they are not allowing the public to test the camera out.

    But it does look like the regular EOS 1D.

    300D kit is selling with the 55-200 lens for $2288, me thinks. there're some memory bundled too.

    D70 is selling for $2288 with the kit lens + a host of other freebies.

    There're good bargains for card readers too. I bought a USB2.0 6-in-1 reader for $23. There could be cheaper ones around.

    Hmm... along the mini Sim Lim at the show is it?
    Anyway, would drop by tomorrow to leave more drool on the glass cabinet (housing 1D MkII), and to get the card reader.
