    Default Camera paradise

    Posted this in offstone, thought i will share these few pic i taken in japan some time ago.

    i bought my G2 accesories in Shinjuku's Sakuraya. Cheaper by 30%.

    No point going to Akihabara. Shopping in Shinjuku itself can get from Yodobahi and Sakuraya. They are giant photography paradise. imagine:

    1st floor: Consumer Digicam and SLR

    2nd floor: Lens

    3rd floor: Filter, Strap.... (oh soooo many different strap to choose from and cheap)

    4th floor: Tripods, Bags..... Studio equipments

    5th floor: Flashes, lights, other misc rare stuff you never thought existed

    MAN, i tell you all of CP branches + MS color + AP still cannot fight with their one single branch.



    YODOBASHI, this is one of the smaller branches.



    The map if you can read it.



    I got the Canon, red and white one.



    Some extra rubbish.

    you must know what you want to buy mah... camera bodies itself are abt the same price as singapore.

    oh, you spend above a certain amt you exempt tax

    My salesman very good, he tried to explain to me in broken english language and some store signage abt the rebate.

    help me save a bit of money.

    the yodobashi main branch (biggest) is at the west exit (shinjuku station)...

    there, you'll find other stores. yodobashi is not the cheapest yet
