Hi people
went down to fotoguide today and the guy told me that they are winding down the shop liao. He never say the exact date but i guess it would be soon that there might be a closing down sale?
Well i guess biz is really bad due to the SARS thingy... my dad's shop sales had dropped 50%... i guess its time to spend less on camera equipment liao

What?? They are my favourite shop. They are honest and does not markup their stuff for walk-in customers (at least for me) not like some other shops.

Oh man ... I will really dread the day they close.:rolleyes: :bheart:

From what i heard, the boss of Fotoguide was one of the shareholders of CP, until they had a disagreement.

He then apparently pulled out of the store, and set up Fotoguide.

Another CP-worthy competitor lost... :(

Except for their Sigma and Tamron lenses, I could never really quite figure out what fotoguide is trying to sell.

They've got B&W stuffs too, like the harder to get Agfa range of Rodinal... I am gonna miss their friendly services if they go...

I'm not sure as to whether this is true or not..
But this was what I heard from my dad, in the olden days... (not sure how long ago.. maybe 10 - 15 years ago?)
