Hi guys, my S2 just got stolen last week, and I've been itching to get an S3 for my projects/events coming up soon.

Anyone has any good places to recommend on best prices / good deals for this camera?

I checked out these 2 places at Vivocity yesterday:
Best Denki - $799, Free 512 SD, Rechgable Batts
Challenger - $799 + Negotiable, Free 512 SD, Casing, Cleaning Kit, Tripod

Will the offers at Funan Ctr / Sim Lim be better?

Pls help! Thankssss;)

Bro.. I've juz got my S3 less than 3 days ago.. I went to MS color le.. They quote me $705 which comes wif 512mb card, 4 X re-chargeable batt plus free charger for the batt... but th e free gift muz collect from canon @ harbourfront.. I think they are selling at quite a reasonable price with excellence service.. Many of the CS users buy from there too if I'm nt wrong...;p

Good for you! :thumbsup: Enjoy your new toy! :D
The guy there was trying to sell me the Lens Adapter Hood Set LAH DC20 for $50, cos he said that this item probably might not be made anymore in future, and is essential if i wanna add wide angle / telephoto lenses.

he also mentioned wide angle lens = macro lens.... true/not true?

yea... it sounded abit weird to me.

I'm a fan of macro photography, and i know the camera on its own has limited macro ability. I seem to have problems focusing/getting a sharp image when i put it to super macro mode...

Am I doing anything wrong?
