Online Stores in the Philippines

Hi friends! I am planning to buy a new digital camera sometimes before Christmas. Can you suggest some Pinoy sites I can visit? Or even camera stores in the Metro? I'd rather buy from online sellers though I think it would be cheaper. Thanks a bunch!

and I thought you are the goddess on shopping but do try sulit.com.ph or sulit.ph then there is multiply or try ebay oh it is in sulit.com.ph and there are a lot there. you just have to search and their search engine is really nice, you ca filter your search if you want brand new or second hand and how much is your price range.

Hello, I know of a photographer (professional) who buys his stuff in Raon, Quiapo. He said that buying in raon is as good as buying in the malls the only difference is the price. My brother bought his first digital cam in Raon, so I think Raon is a nice choice.

raon is a nice place to shop and not just for digital cameras. just remember to dress down and carry enough cash as they do not accept credit cards in stores in raon. also, you might want to do some window shopping first before settling for a digital camera. it would also help if you check the item first for any defects before finalizing the deal. usually, these stores do not offer any warranty for the products you purchased. also, remember to haggle with the store. it's something you can definitely do in raon that you can't do in malls and regular camera shops. hope this helps. cheers!!!

There are online sites here that I think you can try to visit and think you can see the camera that you want. Some online sites that I know are ebay.com.ph; sulit.com.ph and auction.ph and you can try as well multiply, some multiply users create a kinda online store and sell their products. But I would recommend for you to visit first ebay, aside that it got a wide range of products and can see a pretty good price, I also buy there and so far, the products that I bought are quite good and prices are right for it's value. Just take note the seller's reputation before you make a deal and you'll do fine in it. Hope I can help you with this.

Hi, so far, all photographers I know are buying at Hidalgo in Quiapo, there are stores there like Henry's, Meyer's and the like (haven't been there myself but heard stories). Cameras there have the lowest price around. But if you don't want to go to Quiapo, there is a store in Greenhills which offers low prices, I forgot the exact name of the store but I think it has a Pixel in it. On online sites, I recommend Tipidpc.com go to Digital Cameras bar and you would see people selling second hand cameras with good quality and of course brand new that I think people are willing to send via courier. If you would like to buy a Nikon, you can check out www.jerry.ph/nikon ,hope this helps!
