Thread: Buying from Hong Kong?

  1. #1

    Default Buying from Hong Kong?

    I've heard that it's really cheaper to buy a camera over there. I'm looking to buy a 400D. Anyone can share any experience on the buying experience there? I have someone going over there soon, would it be worth it to ask him to buy for me?

    I hear that the warrenty is local only - i.e. only covers HK. So I would have no warrenty here.

    If someone can give me a shop name, and best of all, a price for 400D in HK, I'd really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    Down here in australia there are plenty of HK sellers on ebay australia. i ordered a canon A540 from them, it came alright.

    I personally wouln't buy anything of too much value from them - no warranty if something stuffs up.

    Besides, I hear singapore prices are low enough! (at least compared to what's in australia )

    Cheers

    Man Shing & Wing Shing, both at Mongkok, Kowloon are the more reputable outlets.

    As for the prices, check them out here:
