    I think it's that shop at Lucky Plaza you're talking about? The one near the basement McDonald's? (Forgot the name) This shop damn one kind. The prices for one particular product can fluctuate with a difference of 300% within a matter of 24hrs! Amazing.

    Worldwide Cameras is at Peninsula Plaza.

    This shop has been on my personal sh*tlist for many years already. I figure they only way they've managed to survive for so long is from ripping off tourists and unsuspecting locals alike. Attitude is one kind. Pricing is just ridiculous. Scammers BIG time.

    *PUI* to all these shops!!!

    Lesson learnt.

    Do your research properly, and always shop at reputable camera stores like Cathay Photo Center or John 3:16. At the very least, go somewhere safer like Courts or Best Denki. No point whining and pinning for something that's done with.

    f/8 and be there.

    just lodge a complaint with CASE. you've got nothing to lose and CASE is not that useless.

    i remember my dad being ripped off years ago buying electronic equipment at a shop in lucky plaza, he complained to CASE and managed to get a refund.

    How much was he ripped off again?

    If the amount is substantial, even though the person started the thread, would it help if he were to write into places like Stomp and The Straits Times to share such experiences and most of all NAME the shop?

    People who go to STOMP! deserve to shop at places like Worldwide Cameras.
    (Sorry lah, I don't think very highly of STOMPers.)

    I think it's easier to name the good shops, and treat everything else as crap. Seriously. Especially in the Chinatown/Orchard Rd area. *PUI*

    And I also second the idea that for the totally clueless, Harvey Norman, Courts, etc are a safe bet. In fact, occasionally, they do come up with good deals!

    The problem with naming shops like these on Clubsnap is pretty useless because we all know the consequences of shopping in places like this.

    Better to name the shop at places that can reach out to people are either new or not as enthusiatic about photography or places where tourists frequent.
