Try a search. I like Mustafa, others like Funan or Cathay Photo in the Peninsula.

We've bought our last 2 cameras at Funan. In fact, I think we've bought every electronic product at Funan...

After you decide on the model check Parisilk at Holland Village also for a price check. They have very decent deals and you can also negotiate it down quite a bit.

Thanks everyone! Can you negotiate at Funan? Is the staff knowledgeable on good SLRs?

FUNAN:

John 3:16 (closed on sundays)
Alan Photo

PENINSULA (coming from city hall, building before reaching funan):
Cathay Photo (closed on sundays)


You can discuss at length with the sales people in these stores to help you decide which cameras and accessories to get. They also have built a reputation amongst SLR enthusiasts
