I had great service when buying my Canon 5D Mk III and lens etc so will return.

Everyone wants to sell you something without providing quality service. Andrew and the team at Echo certainly provide all that one could wish for.

I’ve mistakenly went to the Sincere Podium in search of film cameras, but didn’t find any FILM cameras there. Then I went to Stanley Street, but I didn’t notice any open camera shops at all (maybe, because it was Sunday?). And only when I headed back to Shenzhen, I’ve stumbled upon a narrow stairway with photos of film cameras. This was a very nice film camera shop with three polite girls working in it. Not only they sell legacy cameras, lenses and film, but also develope it. Their address is: 4/F, No.11, Queen Victoria St., Central. – Maybe it will help any other film enthusiast like me.

I’ve been shopping there for 10 years and I can assure you – HK is a great place to buy camera gear. I agree you can often find deals in your hometown just as good, but on the whole I’ve been able to get things cheaper in HK, especially lenses.

I travel and shop in Asia all the time, but not in HK any more.
Got ripped off repeatedly, even threatened with assault by some shopkeepers when pushing for a bargain and have never been back. Even the food is a rip-off. The Tourism authorities don’t want to know and don’t care. Their only interest is your wallet, and in the most aggressive and unpleasant way possible.
Nothing’s changed. CAVEAT EMPTOR. You can get just as cheap camera deals in your home town shop sales, with genuine warranties. If you are stupid enough to buy in HK then you deserve all you get.
For shopping, you are far better off in Singapore, Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur, any time, where bargaining can be enjoyable..

The only thing I’m aware that’s changed is that Miramar on Stanley St no longer exists. Maybe some other things have changed but most should be accurate.
