    There is a list of reputable camera shops. Stick to them of you want to get good deals - but never forget your homework. Shops are not charity.
    Check the small prints of promotions, I remember there is a buy back program by Canon. IT shows have this name because .. it's about IT, not cameras. Apart from some rare occasions they just sell for standard prices and throw in freebies of little or no use. No point getting "pampered" with so-called freebies if you need to buy that stuff later again to have it properly (e.g. tripods, filters, cleaning kits).

    Yup, I can vouch that statement. Check out those shops in Funan and Peninsula Plaza. Bring along a friend when you go even you don't plan to buy on that day.

    Read and read and read. Btw, I wouldn't recommend you to buy DSLR from IT shows. It's meant more for IT products including digicam! Best to read the various threads in here on the recommended shops before making decision. Good luck...

    cheers
