Did you bother to read the links? some have pricing information. Or, you could just try to search the mass sales section. Of course, you could also do the logical thing and call up the usual shops tomorrow when they open.

True. Very true the price may not be SingDollar.

However there's a Exchange Rate Calculator online:

yes it does get a bit "rough" for those who like to be spoon fed. We are already pretty patient here. Most prices are usually in USD unless otherwise indicated. Sound like you haven't buy anything online? For me, I always like to use Amazon.com as a price indicator. I still need to check the local stores for a local price. Like Rashkae said, pick up the phone and dial...

there must be a reason why some people post/read up on the Newbies section instead of others..

Actually you can try ebay... ebay.com.sg and key in Ring Flash, then you will see a group of result of existing ring flashes available... plus in sing dollar. Of course you could DIY ring flash too.

http://www.digital-photography-school.com/how-to-make-a-diy-ring-flash-tutorial (this is just an example).

Hope you find it helpful.

Thanks.
