Thread: Camera shops in Ho Chi Minh?

    Default Camera shops in Ho Chi Minh?

    Hi guys and gals,

    Just wondering if there's any reputable shops in HCM that you know of. Looking at lenses, and possibly bodies should the prices compare well against Singapore's.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are a lot all over the place, but mostly second-hand stuff. New stuff is extremely expensive as it's a luxury good there. The second-hand stuff is dusty and has lots of fungus.

    A name "Saigon Cathay" comes to mind immediately.

    luxury good ? Gotta join the local photography club outing and see their equipments, a lot carry dslr walking the street like singapore nowaday. There are a few shops but none have that much better price compare to singapore, better off getting it in hk or somewhere else. But can find a lot good price film stuff in good condition

    not much of a buy in HCM
    lots of old equipment, saw a lot of TLRs and russian stuff.
    but most of it was old and largely unuseable, though u might get lucky.
