Not to say all though.

    Alternatively, you can go play with the cameras at places like Courts, though it's not recommended that you buy from them.

    If you don't mind being different, you can always check out the other brands. I was like you - only know about Canon and Nikon before but from reading up I realize other brands have a lot to offer too. Good luck with your purchase and always do your homework! Even some of the reputable shops at Funan may try to smoke you...
    well i understand but not sure where to start though the price guides i wrote down le

    Take the price guide down sitex, compare it with the fliers, see if the promotion justifies the price difference (usually it does not) and don't let any salesman sway you. Good luck hunting

    The price usually will not drop, unless it's the display set, which I'm sure you don't want. They will throw in more freebies but like many here have said, the freebies they give are more or less useless.

    call your friends out and lets give 'em a good

    hehehehee...


    well, not saying that you CANNOT find a good deal at such shows...
    in general, the advice you're getting is to go in with your eyes wide open. Don't be a carrot head and end up paying more for nothing.

    1) shortlist a few cameras (try try at big stores such as Courts)
    2) do some market research (CS price guides, e-quotes from stores)
    3) go to the show (if you still feel like it) and compare prices. Do note that the 'freebies' usually have little value, so best if you can avoid buying them in the first place.
    Exploring! :)

    Make a list of what you need and fit it into your budget? camera bag, dry cabinet, tripod (the real kind, not the flimsy ones) etc etc...

    once you got your brand new camera, stop looking at other camera.
    Now is the time to start looking at lenses, tripod, bags....etc.
    And go out there to shoot of course.
    You can try Orchard Road in the evening to get use to carrying around a dslr sling around your neck.

    call the shops and ask for the price, the guide is as good as the last update. then you get the current price.

    I am still trying to find which button to press to connect to the internet so that I can surf the web with my camera.
