I've finally settle to buy the Canon A40.

Need some recommendation wat else I need/must buy for a start. To wat I know is these:

1) UV lens (around S$10)
2) Camera case (Read that Carrefour has the best deal)
3) Battery charger (which battery charger should I get?)
4) Extra set of batteries (Any particular brand?)

Thanks for any advise.

Can try lowepro if you got extra cash to spend
3) Battery charger (which battery charger should I get?)
Can get from mustafa, they got good charger there and I heard it's very cheap and good.
4) Extra set of batteries (Any particular brand?)
Get from mustafa also. Can get GP 1600mAH.

Hi,
For camera case, I would recommand Lowepro D-Res Series. This series is designed for digital devices, lots of protection, resonable exterial design, material won't scratch the LCD.
Have different size and price around $10+~$30+.
Can go to CP to "see see look look".
I don't have any commission for it, just that I've recently got 1 and find it great for me.

Just my little recommandation...

Oh btw if you plan to go CP to see and look, the price tags on the bags are twice the actual selling price! So you'll know how to bargain ;)

I have decided on this camera too :)
Taken from Glossary:
UV Filter
Filter used to reduce the amount of ultraviolet light reaching film. Ultraviolet light can cause an image to appear hazy. Also used to protect the front lens element.

Most of us use it to protect the lens from scratches.

Hope these help.

Would you be interested in MW4798N charger? See http://www.purplemoo.com (under products / electronics). Listed as Compact Intelligent Charger.

I've got a spare one to let go.

Welcome to the A40 club.

;)

Hi all!

I am a new member here. Since there is a post of getting a Canon A40, perhaps I can ask similar question.
After did some researches, I finally want to buy a Canon A40 also. :)

1. I notice that (from the previous threads) there are a few number of shops here selling quite competitive price such as Cathay Photo, Alan Photo. Do you know what is the website for Alan Photo? It seems that the website is down?

2. Is the e-quote price a fixed price? Can we still bargain based on this price?

3. Is C204F battery charger a good choice?

4. What Compact Flash brand would you recommend? Thought of getting 128 MB.

Sorry if my post is quite long. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

I have ever gone to Alan Photo's website but seems like recently it is no longer online. Anyway, equote provides you a gauge on the general price range of the camera/accessories.

Not sure which charger you are referring to. Do you have more info on it. AP sell a casio charger which can double up as a power adaptor for the A40. Comes with 4 NiMH 1700mah batteries too at $45.

Re: CF, read here that many recommends Ridata CF. I am using IPOC which is like an OEM CF. Works for me.

If you are really looking for a fast charger you can try the Rayonvac charger selling around $80. Its available at most DIY shops. For me, I just need a reasonable fast charger i.e. 3-5 hrs and portability is more a priority. Hence, think I will be going for the Casio one.

I have called AP before for a verbal quote the number is 6336-0922.

People have bought 128MB Ridata CF at $90 at AP.

p.s. I am not an employee of AP.

How much is the price for Ridata CF? Any ideas?

Err, since the AP website is down, will they entertain if I call them to ask for the price? Anyone has ever tried this before?

Thanks.

Hi, I think Alan Photo's Website is not down, you can try this:

Hi!

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah, I think 3-5 hrs to charge is also enough for me. Just see the review that they recommend this charger (Maha C-204-F).
Btw, what is the model for Casio charger that you mentioned?

Just asked for the e-quote from AP. Do not know whether they'll reply or not because it seems quote is for company?

The model is: Casio BC-3HA
Around $45 ~ $50.

Don't worry, AP will reply your equote, sometime soon, sometime later. :D

Thot CP selling at $505? Anyway, it abt the same. The price is reasonable. The CF seems a bit more expensive. I bought my 128MB CF from AP at $90.
