Thread: Where to buy camera accessories in Singapore?

    Default Where to buy camera accessories in Singapore?

    I am visiting Singapore this week and would like to purchase filters for my Panasonic Lumix FZ5 (55mm). Can anyone recommend shops (please indicate name and location as I am only faintly familiar with Singapore) that are well-stocked with such items? Thanks.

    err.. i would give sim lim a miss if i were a tourist (first time) here. peninsular shopping centre is a safer bet, but avoid those smaller shops eg. those opposite Cathay Photo. good luck.

    Hey... i found a shop in Peninsula Plaza that sells lots of camera accessories.
    if i'm not wrong, this shop is on the 2nd level next to BATA.
    i can't really remember the shop name.
    i think it's "K13" something......
    prices there are quite reasonably.
    not like other shops in Peninsula Plaza which can be quite costly.

    Is it? I thought K13 is quite expensive? Anyways, I personally do not like the service there. The guy seems to think that customers who step into his shop are obliged to buy something. And if u look like a noob, he's simply not interested in you. Maybe it's just me...

    Or maybe it's just him.

    hmm... does anyone know where I can get pricelists for such accessories?

    it'll be good to know the streetprice for filters and stuff so as not to get conned by those pesky shops who are all out to rob you.

    thanks.

    K13 is a ok shop, they sell those small hard-to-find accessory, example flash light holder for mounting the handheld flash on tripod...
    But yes the guy would like u to buy something but he is not those hard-sell type.
