    Are the labels printed that way or does your camera have a "reverse" image type setting?

    Where'd you get the card and how much did you pay for it?

    He took pictures from a mirror.

    Yeah it look pretty original - does it have flurry feeling when you move your fingertip on the box?

    I'm not an expert though.

    Judging by these poor quality pictures I'd say original.

    It looks perfectly normal to me. I dunno why you'd think it's a clone...

    well, yes the camera is the one of my mac, the box have the flurry feeling
    what make me think it wasnt original was because, look the back picture, it doesnt have the plastic things on all the gold things, it only has 2 on each sides.
    I pay $1200 mexican pesos for it. are like 110 dollars

    Well, it's real - 99% sure it's real. Just update it with the latest firmware.

    that's really expensive, got mine for nearly $30.00 back when they were on KaiDomain.com a while back, about 6 months or so. anyways, comparing that one to mine, I'd say its real.

    only version one of the R4 shell has those. the (noticeable) differences between V1 and V2 is-
    V1
    spring loaded
    no dents in sides
    shell is white
    plastic separating the pads

    V2
    not spring loaded
    dents in sides
    shell is gray
    no plastic separating pads
    bottom feels looser

    The hell? Even in Indonesia R4DS is ALOT cheaper! Only around $30 or so (well, compared to this $110 R4 of course)

    Anyway, it looks pretty much authentic and original, I don't see a problem with that image and that cart of yours, still, maybe reversing your images will do better, it's pretty hard to judge, what with the poor quality of those images
