Errr... can't recall the exact price but it was around $150.

A set of 1600mah NiMH can last very long... so far for all my shoots, I have never needed to change battery for the F1000 except a wedding shoot. (By the way, my normal shoots would expend both my FM50 battery, or about 500+ shots so you can gauge how long is that)

I remember you bought it at $170 (discount from $200), it's the same rate of discount used for 707, $1700 down from MRP $1999

Recently i went to CP and they quoted me 160 or 155 i think.... but then as i was negotiating a price, someone came and bought it for 170....... and that was the last one :(

Thanks for the quick reply though hee.... For me i find the built in flash too weak for bounced flash (by putting a card at an angle in front of the flash) & the image would end up on the orangy side. thats why i'm considering it.

yup, external flash would definitely help a lot. I got one too cos my internal flash was weak and takes too long to charge and recharge.

just wondering how accurate the "exposure" for the flash works.... a colleague mentioned that she needs to tilt the flash in order to achieve the right exposure.

The F1000 does not do TTL... and that's the major gripe I have with the 707... you have to do a lot of experimenting to know how to handle the flash well... I make my own bounce flash... now version 3.5 already... :)

I heard some shops in Sim Lim Tower will build a PCB from schematics for a fee.

The circuit looks simple enough for any electronics hobbyist to build, but you will need a way to program the PIC 16F877. And of coz, a source for the PIC chip. Otherwise, given the components, I can build the circuit. :)
