    Do you need a better battery charger or another SD card? See my post above.
    SGCamerastore and Artworkfoto is also there, may have some accessories and studio diffuser. Benphoto giving 10% to all their regular price items.
    Eneloop XX batteries are for sale (not cheap though)
    Buffalo 4 bay NAS still $299 even though it's normal retail price drops
    Samsung F4 2TB harddisk is now $94.
    Eastgear brought its portable backup storage ($400++)

    That's all I remember seeing that are more closely related to photography.

    I kinda agree with Ortega on this. Year after year, same sh!t, different exhibitors. I'd rather stay at home and watch youtube.

    I was there Friday afternoon to get a laptop. It was a madhouse. Saw lots of carrots leaving the show with Nikon packages.

    The $55 diff almost enough to buy the lighting kit promo at sgcamerastore. Oh well, next time must do more homework and ask around more.

    Looking at all the posts, seems like a few accessories at Comex might be a little bit cheaper but provided one know the prices outside, it's dangerous to go in blind. Lack of proper information plus the crowd and noise, it's difficult to think rationally on the spot. Not as bad as buying camera and lens but not exactly worth going unless you know your stuff.

    I saw the card was at 52 at eastgear. Didn't run ard to check price as I only have like an hr to be there... Cathay was good, I went over to change my faulty 190xprob, tried 4 times n finally got a good set.

    Let me clarify, some of the stuff are really cheaper there but the crowd is crazy cannot really shop, if you are just buying 1 or 2 items then it is not worth the trouble. I wanted to re contract my cable tv but I'd have to queue for minimum 2 hours. I went home and did it online. Just like when the iPhone came out, instead of queuing for hours to get the phone, I did it online and Singtel sent it to me. Imagine if once you reach the front of the queue and were told that I'm sorry there is no more stock! Oh my..!!!! This is my opinion only, penny wise pound foolish
