Hello

I am an exchange student visiting Singapore and I'm looking to buy a Nikon D3100. I've heard that there is an international warranty on the cameras, which covers one year. Is this true?

Also - I'm only staying in Singapore for 4 months. Would it be better for me to order it from home and what would this do for my warranty?

Thanks in advance :)

The international warranty is only for lenses. The body is only covered by 1 year local warranty

Since Nikon is an international company. I do not understand why there is a difference between the warranty coverage for bodies (local) and lenses (international).

People travel a lot these days and they can't do anything (except pay) if the body is broken down elsewhere besides country of purchase. Thats so weird.

Anyways, Nikkor lenses in the US covers 1 year international + 4 years local. Thats what I call good coverage and confidence in product. Heck, Hyundai cars give 10 year warranty these days here too.

Think they should look into body warranty.

I wish for that too, but sometimes warranty can be a tricky thing across borders.
I think if you buy a car in Singapore, and it breaks down across the border, you don't get warranty privileges there either :dunno:

I can understand for cars. Maybe certain cars are built (or stripped down) for certain weather. Left/Right hand drive, etc. Size is even different (eg. Honda in Japan, Singapore and USA) sometimes and even makes. Hence, not every dealer have the same handbook for the car in question.

But for a standardized format like cameras, isn't it weird. I believe, it is also the same case for Canon. Not for Nikon only.

It's not so much the product, but the organizational structure. I don't profess to know if Nikon Singapore and Nikon Malaysia are 100% owned by same company.
If you are company A, why would you honour Company B's warranty?
