    Do yourself a favour and get it from the 2nd hand shops in Peninsular!
    The people are cash converter know nuts about cameras and they just place the cam in a cabinet which is so dirty and dusty!
    You can get other stuff from CC but not cameras imo..unless you wanna send the cam for cleaning.

    Yeah the one at Tampines is the same. Some of the lens there I think got fungus. You better think twice before buying there.

    Since you're going to Cathay go up one floor and look for K13 marketing they sell second hand cameras there.

    Check out the Buy n Sell here on CS. I think there are people selling the EOS 30 and the 650 around.

    I even saw a 20D selling for SGD1800 at AMK. They just leave the camera in the dusty shelf. I think CS B&S would have a better offer. Other stuff is OK but I wont buy cameras from them.

    NEVER buy cams from cash converters. Look at the way of how they store the cams...if u buy it, u'll definitely regret it.

    Agree, look in B&S for good deals ... anyway, a lot of film cameras are being released by their owners ... u can even get an EOS 1 pro camera for $300++ ...

    There are many threads talking about film users and who they are. You can find a more comprehensive list of film users there.

    I used to shoot film but recently switched to digital. Sad to say that quality of digital still can't beat the slide films.

    But the price for their 2nd hand lenses is quite high. I don't know whether we can bargain on 2nd hand items. Anyone can give advise?

    Thanks!

    i wouldn't really knock cash converters for cheap gear. about 3 years ago, got two minolta X-700 cameras, one with a 50mm f1.4 (a bit of dust but no fungus) the other with the 35-70 f3.5 zoom (clean), each set cost me $90, still using them today, haven't had any problems with either. (did have to replace the bump foam for the mirron in one body and that's about it.)

    other gems were electro 35 GSN's and GTN's, cheap at $20 - $50, some clean, some for parts. best buy was a $25 Nikkor 105 f2.5 AIS lens (clean and crisp) but that one was a very, very rare occurance.

    just remember, buyer beware, there's a lot of junk in there, look carefuly and be prepared to get disappointed.

    Bargain may be a bit hard for TCW as their prices are indeed rather high. I would suggest getting it from the B&S section here.
