Really? I also bought one for my S5 Pro. Will check the instruction manual when I'm back in SG.

Don't think PRC will care. yup <G> I found a Chinese company (www.aputure.com) which produces some items for photography.

I read somewhr that i can mount the camera onto a standard film canister. Abit of DIY there but it should work right? It should work, I did it this way too when I first started doing webcam imaging. Just try your best to have the film canister's opening area parallel to the webcam's sensor surface.

I took the Subway (line 1- Red color) to the Xinzhuang Rd. station (end of line one), and from there I walk outside to the bus station, to take the hospital bus (note: this a special bus straight to the hospital only). I'm sure there is another bus to downtown Jinshan...
