My wife is a professional photographer. We just returned from our second visit to SIN.

My advice to you is price out what you're looking for at home. Shop around at a few places in SIN.

As we discovered during both of our visits, there were no bargains in SIN. The prices were generally the same as we could get at home.

Try John 3:16 at Funan Centre. I do not work for them or have any connections for them but they are a lovely bunch of guys who know their products and do not push you into buying.

Only problem is I do not know if they are strong on video stuff but they have good photography stuff.

Hope that helps

My sister (we're Singaporean) is into amatuer photography and her favourite shops are these:

Cathay Photo

http://www.cathayphoto.com.sg/

Outlet at Marina Square and Peninsula Plaza.

Alan Photography

http://www.phsphoto.com.sg/

Outlet at Funan and Sim Lim Sq.

But I advise you to shop around and to bargain down the prices. The department store Mohamad Mustafa in Little India is a good place to go to for a guide to what the price of stuff is (fixed prices there).

But as per the previous posts, you need to know what you want and how much you would pay for it back home coz with the intenet, prices of electronics in the West has come down dramatically.
