Buzz Pod Convenience Store, Clementi Bus Interchange

The name on them is Buzz, but their website ( http://www.buzzpod.com.sg/ ) calls them Buzz Pods. This is a franchise business, surprisingly, run by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH), the Straits Times guys. They probably see it as a way to sell their publications, though the pods also sell snacks and drinks. 

A lot of the bus interchanges have one. The black strip with the red Chinese characters is a scrolling LED display, with news headlines. Some pods display Chinese headlines, others display English. 

  • Nikon D7000, 18-200mm f3.5-5.6
  • At 18mm, f4.8, ISO 400, 1/180 seconds
  • Aperture priority exposure, center-weighted metering, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Auto contrast, crop, straighten
At 18mm and with a stabilized lens, I could have gone to ISO 100 and 1/45 seconds, but I was in a hurry and didn't have time to optimize.
