Where to buy Digital SLR?

Postby linnie » Sat, 30 May 2009 12:52 pm

Hey all!

I'm in Singapore the next week and I want to buy a Canon rebel XTi. Anyone knows where I have to be to get a great deal? Thanks a lot!

I like Musfata in Little India -- zero hassle and good prices too. It's worth at least checking their price before attempting to bargain with the slime in Sim Lim etc.

Its hard to beat Mustafa if you already know what you need.

John 3:16 in Funan is great if you need any help.

Naranjan offers damn cheap prices but no warranty is offered and CASH only deals.
Yeah he is quit famous.
His shop is located at race course road before Serangoon Plaza.
Nearby lan marks is "Tekka Center"
Walk straight towars Serangoon road a bit and there is 1 hotel [ I think name of hotel is "Broadway" ] at left, take a left turn and walk till the end of that lane and look at right hand side it's Naranjan.

Regards,
Amey.

No refunds either (technically illegal, mind you). I'd pay a few more bucks for peace of mind and get a real warranty...

So no trace that you bought a camera at the shop.....might be a very expensive purchase at the end of the day.

I take the liberty to reverse your question to "Where not to buy Digital SLR"

- Sim Lim Square (except Alan Photo)
- Lucky Plaza (All shops)
- Far East Plaza

As to where to buy cheap DSLR, you can also try Parisilk at Holland Village.

Don't ever go to cathay photo unless you have a load of cash to be ripped off.

You can try john 3:16 @ funan. Very good and professional ppl. Don't ask why but lets say I'm working for the ppl at C_ _ _ N :D

Just my 2 cents :D
