    Last year, I went to Shanghai and noticed that the price of those branded camera or rather "foreign" camera, such as Nikon, Canon to be much higher than those sold in Singapore.

    As for those local brand, I've no idea.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm thinking of more exotic cameras, not necessarily 35mm nor SLR, but thanks for the input.

    You can get locally branded cameras like the Phenix, which is more or less a Pentax K-1000 clone for a song. Comes with a cheapo 50mm, takes all K-mount lenses, and even built-in meter. Red Dawn has one, you can ask him.
