"digital camera" Electronics Tip by psychicchap

Electronics, Hong Kong: 35 reviews and 17 photos

hi all,

i have been to most of the south east asia and china. Due to the peers, i had a myth too that singapore market is cheap. but coming over to HK, i realized, so long i had been sleeping.

i bought canon EOS350D for 7800HKD from broadway, timesquare in causeway bay area. Advantage i got purchasing from broadway was 1 kit bag, 1 gig SD Card, tripod stand and a extra battery along with international warranty of 1 year and 2 years local warranty if within HK. i mean this was worth a deal against SGP market or in Shenzhen market. In shenzhen, wherein i live at presently, i was getting only lens and the body for 6330 Yuan. but the warranty was only for China mainland. i mean at any time 7800 HKD deal was much better. in Sgp Sim Lim plaza i was getting whole kit for around 2700 SGP dollar...i mean thats a fortune when i compare to the deal i got in HK.

What to buy: 1. www.tincheungcamera.com.hk - is a genuine shop, pretty good infact, person knows camera stuff pretty cool and proffesionals seldom drop in here to do thier local purchases.

2. broadway - http://www.ibroadway.com.hk/ this is where i purchased my camera. as said, there are always offers going on. i mean, if you are a sensible buyer, you wont paying 100 HKD more and getting more like i got...along with camera, i got kit bag, 1 gig mem card, extra battery and a tripod stand too... you can try your luck in trying out bargaining, if salesman is really cool, you might just be lucky...so dont shy from asking for favours ;)

3. fortress - http://www.fortress.com.hk/en/home.html Similar to broadway, but its more professional shop... offers like i got in broadway are very limited in fortress. when i purchased from broadway, fortress wasnt offering any. :( hence i selected broadway
