B&H Photo Video.
A US-based site.

Hi, is this a reliable online store? Have you bought anything from there?

Thinking of buying a DSLR from there.

Thanks in advance.

There are 3 very reputable online camera store out of the US. The largest, in terms of revenue, is B&H. The other two are Sammy's and Adorama. All 3 are large businesses, and not going to try to cheat you for a few bucks. Not worth it to them.

Many of the smaller outfits are also very reliable. However, if you find a deal too good to be true, it is generally too good to be true, and you should be careful.

5% GST if value of imported stuff is > S$400, IIRC.

Well said :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Watch out for scams

You want trustworthy sites? Remember to check the sellerratings. There are US based websites that will rate the online merchants.
Just dont buy from any Tom Dick or Harry.
