Thread: Buying DSLR in SG - international warranty

    Default Buying DSLR in SG - international warranty

    Hi,

    I'm returning to Singapore in Nov/Dec for a week or so and am looking to purchase a DSLR then. I permanently reside overseas though, so would like to know whether if I bought the camera in Singapore whether there will be an international warranty on it and if the camera needs servicing/repair, I can just do it locally instead of in Singapore?

    Also, did a search for this and stumbled upon a couple of threads about buying camera/lens etc in Japan and HK etc, seems like most are discouraged to buy from countries where they don't usually reside or travel to, so wondering whether I should buy here instead of in Singapore?

    Thanks!

    Only Sony has international warranty for camera bodies and lens. C

    Canon has local warranty for bodies, but international warranty for their lenses and accessories.

    On the whole, camera bodies have only local warranty while the lenses and accessories come with international warranty. =)

    Not only Sony has International warranty, Olympus has it for both bodies and lenses too. I believe. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Canon products are very reliable esp their DSLR.. not like the compact cameras which are made in China.

    If you have to get it from Sg, then you can consider getting it from Harvey Norman and get their extended warranty (which is valid at any HN worldwide)

    Travel to Japan, it is much more cheaper to buy from there than SG or down under.
