Photography in Shanghai?
Just wondering anyone had visited the beautiful Shanghai and gives me tips on what to take as i will be there for 2 days.
Also, is there any shops that sells photography equipment that's cheaper than SG? I think China prices should be cheaper than SG but maybe a tad more exp than HK?

I was told that there is a nearly 20% import tax for China. Camera could still be cheaper as they are imported "under the table" but good luck on warranty claims.
Alternatively, a few of those old-days Seagulls camera or china made stuff could be cheap.

Is that so? If that's the case then not worth buying then. I will wait till i go HK next trip then buy. Thanks

Yup. I am in believe that HK prices are more pleasing to the wallet.
Got my underwater housing thru a friend in HK. In S'pore the lowest i got was about S$280 - 290. In HK and after using lousy exchange rate (friend lah), I paid only S$250 !!
Of course, you happened to be there, or else the freight isn't going to be worth it. Of course, BIG ticket item, add the S$288 return airfare can still be a winner for the purchase in HK...
