    Question Where to buy a camera in SG

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a camera that doesn't come with a flash, doesn't require batteries to work and isn't those disposable type. I used to own one, just pop in the flim and everything works mechanically, but I've misplaced it. Thanks.

    Hmmm... manual focus SLRs also need batteries for the build in meter ley... now is really manual slr/range finders/manual point and shoot liao

    er... for the first 2, so you'll still need a light meter no??? and aht means batteries... and another piece of equipment.

    I need a camera whose shutter works even when there isn't battery / batter is low. I think the FM3a is a worth looking at, if I can find it.

    You can get it at Cathay Photo in Peninsula Plaza. A new one costs around S$950~S$1000. Or you may consider getting a 2nd one

    I myself own one . Got mine from the ebay. It will work with or without battery at all shutter speeds.

    Good one would be the FM2. I have one myself. Very solid camera, and quite cheap. Hunt around the forum... Can get for less than SGD 400 for condition 8 to 9.
