TO buy Digital camera in Singapore : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread

I am from India currently in California for a training. I will be returning to India and will stop over at Singapore for 10 hours. I need to know the places to shop that are closest to Singapore Airport. I am interested to but a digital camera and a mobile fone. Is ti better that I buy it here in Californai or at Singapore. Would appreciate any help and guidance on this.

Thanks in advance.

Do you know the specific model of camera that you are looking for? Use as a price reference point if it is a common enough model. You can go to the ever-reliable Mustafa's in Serangoon Road ("Little India") or you can try to discuss with the people at bargain city whether they can make a special arrangement to meet up with you to effect the transaction. Depending on brand/model, some cameras will/will not have int'l warranty.

Hi , be careful of this black shop in singapore. "I HAVE BEEN CHEATED" $390 which cost only $89 for the vitacon lens.

i have bought vitacon 0.45 x wide angle with sony dcr-pc330e video cam and VF-R37K Filter kit in singapore at (song brother) 1 rochor canal road sim lim square #01-59/60. The sale man (name call Stefan gwee) char me for the total price of the three item at SGD$2614 including 5% GST.(TOTAL AMOUNT IS $2490) on 4 jul 2004.

The sony dcr-pc330e video cam in sim lim square shop cost about Sgd$2050 (GST not include ) as i tour around to ask for it price. The sony dcr-pc330e video camcorder itself which (song brother shop) charg me about Sgd$2050 (GST not include). Then VF-R37K Filter kit about SGD$50 GST not include. Which mean the vitacon 0.45 x wide angle cost me about $390 GST not include.

I then found out that the Vitacon 0.45 x wide angle in another shop at sim lim square (Edison electronics 01-43/45) cost only $SGD89 for the same models of the lens.

i have been cheated. i still have the receipt on my hand to prove that these three item cost me SGD$2490 GST NOT include.

As i look carefully for the description on the receipt it is written as (GROBARTING 0.45X WIDE ANGLE VIDEO LENS).
