Does anyone here always purchase stuffs at The Camera Workshop? I juz bought a lambency diffuser from them at $35 but the shop at Sim Lim Sq Level 6 is only selling at $20. Tago Tech is also selling at $20. I find that they are overcharging us on the accessories. Can anyone verify with me how much you bought your infrared filter? I bought mine for $88.

I've written them an email. Let's see what their response.

I knew the price. They quoted me $30 but I'm only willing to pay $20 so I headed to OP and got it for $20.

I think, like many other shops, you really have to know exactly what you want to buy and the market price.
Don't you agree?
Yes, it definitely helps to know your prices well,

not giving those shops a chance to over-charge you

Hongsien: Hoya Infrared Filter 58mm
How much you bought?
Sorry, I didn't buy this filter, just wanted to point that price depends on the filtersize and kind of filter. IR filters are not cheap........

I would suggest to make a fair comparison is to check the price at another shop first before making comments about a certain seller here........
