    There are many camera shops in MBK shopping centre, next to the National Stadium Skytrain station.
    Some shops such as Fotofile sell second hand gear.

    There are two malls in Bangkok which have quite a few camera stores. Pantip Plaza and MBK. MBK is a huge mall, which I am misspelling as Mah Boon Krong. On the first floor of MBK is fotofile

    This is where I prefer to shop and this has about the best selection of used equipment.

    In Pantip plaza there are many shops, such as World Camera

    Big chains such as Powerbuy, and Bigcamera are in MBK

    http://www.powerbuy.co.th/Product.as...wProduct=false

    I assume Powerbuy, World, and Bigcamera are authorized dealers with an International warrenty. However most all of the small shops in Pantip are grey market. If you do not mind that you will not have a Nikon warranty, you will only have the "store warranty", then you will get a low price on new camera. For example a Nikon D90 at any of the small shops, cash please, is 24,000 Thai bht ($745 USD or #1,013 Singapore dollars). This is a good price if there are no problems with the camera. For example at World, Powerbuy, or Bigcamera the same camera is 33,000 Thai baht.

    So gray market, used, or authorized dealer are all available in Bangkok, and each buyer may decide which to choose, and I don't want to hijack this thread getting into discussions about that.
