Buy a digital camera in Vietnam, is it a good deal ? Where to Buy a camera in Vietnam ?
Photography equipment are expensive in general. However, after comparison of the cost of apprareils bought in Europe and America and those purchased in Vietnam, we think it is more profitable to buy one in Vietnam. In this post, we give you a little guide to help you find good quality cameras in Vietnam, cheaper price than those you can find outside of Vietnam . Here, you can bargain the price too -))
What cameras can be found in Vietnam?
Any kind of brand exists in Vietnam. Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, all new or used and also antiques. You can find them all. There has always been photographers in Vietnam and Vietnamese also love to take pictures and be photographed. In addition, Vietnam is open to the world, so there is trade between Vietnam and the outside . Once we made the ad for a new series of camera of any brand, the following week, the same appears in the store of some cameras shops in Ha Noi and Saigon.
Where you can find them?
The photography is a big Evolution and becomes popular hobby for medium class in Vietnam living in big cities. So we must look for cameras shops in rich cities like Hanoi, Hai Phong, in northern Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City in the south
You can find good photography equipment at the following addresses:
Vong Duc Street, small alley between Hang Bai Street and Ngo Quyen, at a short walk from Hoan Kiem lake. In this small street there are many shops for cameras . These shops sell all kinds of brand, all kinds of quality and condition: old, new and antique. A bargain! Also, we can repair the camera at a raisonnable price with competent workers. The good one for news cameras is Minh Tuyet Camera ( Website http://minhtuyet.vn/ ) in the biggest shop 7-11 Vong Duc Street . If you are searching for old cameras and lens , please check in a smaller shop : 8 Vong Duc ( Manh Hai shop ) , that the shop I like and bought qui a lot equipements for me
In Trang Thi Street, at the intersection of the Phu Doan and Trang Thi streets, there are some photography shops. There are many choices in these shops, they also sell old but mostly new cameras. I recommend a shop called Vu Nhat offering competitive prices and guaranteed quality. Once, I saw a difference of 50 euros between the one with his neighbor for the same device.
For those looking for old cameras for collection purpuse , go to the Song Hong camera shop (www.songhongcamera.com) located in the Trang Thi street just at the crossroads of Trang thi and Ly Thai To, next to Hoan Kiem Lake . It is modest and old shop as its cameras presented inside. This is the best place for those seeking acessories for their old devices or seeking collections. In the shop, there are beautiful Rollei that fontionc always very good
There are many more camerashop but they are a bit far from the center then it’s nearly impossible for you to find them if you are not some one living in Hanoi …About the price, before buying a camera, check the Device prices, because are very competitive in websites of some famous shops.
