    They are one of the 'recommended' shops by CSers, but that doesn't mean you should walk in blind and trust them 100%. Doesn't hurt to do some research on the product(s) you are interested in beforehand
    Exploring! :)

    I think you can trust that they sell authentic goods. But as for whether they are the cheapest, u will need to ask around a few other shops.

    shared before my bad experience with them. was quoted a 'discounted price' S$17x for kata 3n1-22 when mscolor eqoute was only S$130. but that was few months back, might be one off incident.

    I think it's a transition period when kata starts given 15% discount on all bags.

    i do shop at Orient Photo...

    As for the pricing, they are ok ... not the cheapest neither the most expensive... i do find their pricing quite competitive..
    More importantly, they are quite accomodating...

    The biggest and most important difference to me: when I enter the shop there is no sales man lurking around the entrance and jumping at me with "Yes, Sir?" or any other Singlish noise. The guys give you the freedom to look at the stuff they offer without harassing you with "Can I help you?".
    Recently I searched for some IT stuffs at the lower levels of Sim Lim and it got really annoying with these sales people, it's like chasing off flies ...

    yeap, only orient and tkfoto managed to provide such service to me (freedom to look around first) and provide their top assistance when required.

    Cheapest is when you wait for the sale period for Cathay Photo.

    Cheapest without sale is when you find the shop with a few phone calls. But even then it also depends on luck and your way of asking. Wherever you ask, they sell bags in the first place, not discounts.
