    Lightbulb Question about purchasing DSLR

    I've seen most people go to funan mall to purchase dslr but it came to my mind that, why funan mall? Are there any differences between buying ur camera at those funan mall shop & shops like courts, harvey norman and best denki??

    Go to price lists section, compare the price from camera stores and those maga stores you will understand the reasons.
    So people will still get from maga stores partly is for the installment plan, extened warranty.

    Yes. And I believed that the main reason is because of SP VS RRP.

    Prices is lower at Funan and you can afford pay cash.. Installment for other big stores, HN, courts...pay every month partial but higher price.

    At Funan mall, you get everything under one roof. HN, Courts, TK, SLRR, Alan photo etc. So easy to compare prices n freebies n choose the best package.

    I believe most megastores give you that benefit. However even with interest thrown in, many stores still sell cheaper than the megastores.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    If you want interest free credit card payment, just go Cathay photo and pay at their first quote price. Interest free very likely.
