You may think that buying a camera in Singapore is simple. But no matter what, you are still buying the camera in a foreign country. It is always good to equip yourself with the knowledge before making the decision. Below are some tips and what to look out for when buying a camera in Singapore.
You can do some research on the web to find out which model you are interested in. When you have the model and brand in mind, go to the big departmental stores like such as, Best, Harvey Norman and Courts to check out the prices first. Once you have some idea on how much it costs in Singapore, you may then consider going to other retailers to look for a good deal. Later on in this article I have recommended some places to go.
From small retail shops to big departmental stores, there are many dealers who are selling cameras in Singapore. But who should you choose from? Choose the authorised resellers. For example, if you are buying a Nikon camera, you may visit the Nikon website to find out who are the authorised dealers.
There are many places where you can get good deals on cameras in Singapore. I will recommend the following 4 places that I used to find my gems.
Take note the following points:
Come to Singapore during Great Singapore Sales (May - July). During this period, retailers are giving great discounts. You definitely can find a good deal for yourself. Another good time is during Christmas. Retailers are giving offers during this period as well.
I hope with this knowledge, you can enjoy your experience hunting for a camera in Singapore.
