Don't worry, you're not alone. It has been like this for the last 2 decades with the electronics retailing industries in Singapore.
Tourist: Store charged me $300 more for phone
i have called up sanyo sg and clarified on the market retail price of CG 10 - its $699!!!
so for the rest who wants to get this model, you should know the price you should be paying. Iregardless of the prices you see online, due to freight charges, rental and other factors, export sets etc etc...
I would like to clarify and urge all that square united cam in sim lim is indeed the top retailer in sim lim carrying sanyo camcorders. As clarified from the teleconversation with the staff at sanyo.
luckily the price i paid is still a good buy.. :-) phew...
sori guys.. been away real long. i am very new here so im realli not too sure abt the modus operandi here, so here it is the original receipt. i put up the receipt quite sometime ago in my fb.

so which is true? ugh
Either you take it as a lesson, learn from it, throw it aside and enjoy your new toy....or
if you wanna pursuit, go to harvey norman or courts, or Best Denki to check out the price before approaching CASE.
Honestly, I don't think you can get very much out from CASE, but, that so-called Calvin or Sanyo management will definitely be more cautious in informing CASE of the RRP.
What I really missed most, is my first SLR. An Olympus OM2 with the Zuiko 35mm f/1.4, back in 1982!
it feels really good after talking and purging out here while telling e rest, eventho CASE cant do anything since the distributor not helping. im new here and so thanks for support and research and the assurance. this seems to be an awesome place! will be around often enough..
meanwhile.. i will juz play with my toy. lesson learnt.
