IT Show/PC Show don't seem like good time/place to buy cameras in general.

Harvey Norman and Courts always have almost monthly sales at Singapore Expo (e.g. MegaTex, Mega Sales). Worth going there to buy old stocks for digital camera they are clearing?

Or just pop down to any Alan Photo, Harvey Norman, Courts or Challenger outlet on any normal day would do?

Anyway, how come the camera prices quoted in Singapore always much higher than those in US and Europe? :eek:

For example, a budget compact with RRP of £89 (~S$177) has quoted price of S$199 in Singapore?
Another one with RRP at only US$100 (~S$127) has quoted price of S$165?

Singapore sure is more expensive than even US and Europe these days...at least when it even comes to entry level compact cameras. Sellers here sure know how to mark up their prices.

Where in Europe is it cheaper? USA has always been an extremely cheap market to buy electronics because of the economics of scale.
