Thread: What shops that sell cameras? (no sim lim or lucky plaza)

  1. #1

    Default What shops that sell cameras? (no sim lim or lucky plaza)

    Apologise for asking like this since it's probably somewhere in this forum.


    I do not have much time to go through the forum and hence maybe you could name me a few shops other than those in sim lim or LP since i believe they try and cheat customers.


    Btw there's quite a good shop in vivo selling canon brand cameras and they have a huge display of cameras used throughout the last century.

    whoever said SLS or LP cheats people?

    please check out in consumers' corner, there are reputable shops there

    such as AP in SLS and OP in LP

    do not generalise.

    and there are also shops like john 3:16 at funan if you'd like,

    and that in Vivo is a canon showroom, not a shop.

    you can purchase accessories from there, not the cams or lenses

    SOrry for generalizing SLS shops like this. I guess i assumed the ground floor shops have a bad rep for cheating others of their eletronic goods and i thought this also applied to cameras.



    I actually find SLS a bit far from my location. Any places closer to AMK and i don't mind town or orchard area.

    The other threads also provide some cautionary stories of dodgy tactics from other shops.

    If you want to play safe, buy from Courts, Harvey Norman or BEST; you'll have to pay a little more.

    Oh, no wonder. I was wondering how they compete against those camera shops. Thats the "loophole".

    Seriously, there is a Cathay Photo at Peninsular Plaza. One sells tripods and the other sells cameras and accessories.
