Hi Everybody,


I want to get my first DSLR and I know that I can try it out at any shops. But when i go to the shops, they tend to want me to buy it.

Thank you very much.

I tend to find that those display sets at harvey norman , best denki , courts and the like have no battery ( as in bat no juice ) . I have tried out cameras at MS color, john 3:16 and cathay.

I find that MS will let you try almost all their cams while John will promote canon and nikon , thus if you wish to get canon or nikon , thats the place to go. Cathay I cant say much as it was too long ago to remember :sweat:

Any decent camera shop would most probably allow you to test out cameras.

Cathay does for sure, just tested out some stuff some months back.

For Olympu, should now be at Valley Point at River Valley

Why don't go to the upcoming Sitex 2008, there should be several camera vendor there who is showcasing their dslr... With the crowd there, I don't think they would have time to bother by you...:)

Hmm... They have dSLR with attached kit lenses I think, didn't see any other lenses to test, maybe have to ask the staff for it...

I know nikon showroom can ask the staff for the lens and they will take for you to test... :D
