Note for shoppers and travellers:
When browsing, you may want to keep a lookout for shops that are authorised dealers for certain brands. These shops would have direct contact with dealers of major brands like Sony, Canon, Nikon etc., and are often able to provide accurate product information.
Very often, visitors realise that besides better variety of products, the prices of gadgets here are lower than those back in their home countries. It is a good practice, before making your purchase, to check that the item can be used back home. If the voltage requirements differ, you may have to get an adaptor.
