« on: November 19, 2008, 02:01:07 PM »
Magandang araw sa lahat...

I'm planning to buy my first DSLR this december, gus2 ko lng po itanong kung san po ung best place or store para makabili ng maganda ung price at service. i just heard some rumors na di natin maiiwasan may mga manloloko. i'm going for 50D and i dont have any idea kung ok ba sa hidalgo kumuha or just sa mga malls kahit mejo mahal ng konti.... just to make sure everything is genuine and the warranty is pleasing. i started from a P&S camera and i was carried away by everybody's effort and works  here in the forum. i'm starting to love this hobby...

so sana mayron pong magandang kalooban jan na magbigay ng opinyon at tulong sa newbie na gaya ko...

maraming salamat po..

i think Jt Photo (DP Online) is a good option (cheaper than mall price and safer than hidalgo). The people there are very friendly and accommodating and the place is easier to go to and certainly much safer than hidalgo.

see here: http://www.pinoyphotography.org/forum/index.php?topic=37129.0


Here's the hidalgo price i got from the price update thread compared to the price of JT Photo 500 pesos lang yung difference:
50D Body - 57k
w/ 18-200IS - 82k
85mm 1.8 - 15k

henrys, hidalgo

I also prefer JTPhoto.
- They have parking. Its shared with other tenants of the compound pero ok lang, accomodating yung guard.  Hassle lang if may lalabas or papasok and naka harang car mo.  But at least its safe to bring a large amount of cash.  Kasi when you get out of your car your inside the building and no one will see with a big envelope full of cash...(hehe)

- Aircon yung place nila and there are chairs and tables.  Magsawa ka magtest ng camera no pressure from the people of JTPhoto.  Sabihin mo lang ano gusto mo and ask if you can test it.  Tapos test galore.  I think I spent around 1 hour testing a lens no hassle.  I even saw some other photogs bringing their own tripod and FOCUS TEST printout.

- Store Location. Meron sa Makati=)

- Good Operating hours 9am - 7pm.  Mon-Sat.  When I went to hidalgo kasi I was waiting for Mayer and Henry's to open.  I was there at around 10am.  Nagtanong ako 12nn pa pala sila normally nagbubukas everyday.
Funny thing is alam ng mga food vendors dun kasi feeling ko madalas sila tanungin  nga mga bumibili dun.hehe

- May online website sila. digitalprinting.multiply.com and dponline.com.ph.  Maglaway ka kakatingin ng susunod na GAStos.
(I think eto one major advantage nila.  And i've been wondering why other hidalgo shops never even thought of creating their own websites.  Henry's has their own thread in Phipho pero parang di naman updated.)

JTPhoto might be a little higher in price but I'll gladly pay little more for these conveniences.

The next time you create a thread, please use a descriptive title, not a meaningless title like "Need Suggestions". The title should make your thread different from all other threads. Vague titles like "please help", "I need your suggestions" and "patulong naman mga masterz" could apply to any discussion. Just imagine the chaos if all threads in the forum had titles like that. If you want people to spend minutes, and collectively hours, of their time to help you, then please spend a few seconds of your time to write a descriptive title. Thank you.

Buying in Hidalgo is still a good place to go, you can visit Henrys or Mayer or perhaps the other stores their.  Just before buying the item check it well and test it. Much better bring someone who knows about camera with you if you want to buy DLSR be accompanied by person who is very familiar with DSLR especially in Canon since your choice is 50D.

If you want Nikon there's another option in buying camera you can visit also in Dimensions at Makati Cinema Square.

product wise aside, I bought my Canon 400D in Camerahaus. This shop is located in Eastwood and they also have a branch in G4. The reason for which are the following:

1) 12 months to pay, 0% interest (they do accept credit cards and in installment)
2) tons of freebies! from bags to memory cards to even special 400d magazines and books
3) very friendly staff. Even gave me a 30minute session on the relationship on aperture and shutter speed
4) walang tao. I felt as if i can take my sweet time in playing the cam
5) convinience. It was in a mall. But their prices weren't really expensive. In between Hidalgo and other mall establishments

+4 on JT. 
You can't beat the convenience in going there.
Plus the people are very accomodating and you can test all their stuffs til you drop without any commitment to buy.

but for the hard to find items, I go to Hidalgo.  :)

it's nice to look around first before buying. it gives you the chance to compare prices with different cam stores. i suggest you try to look for the best price and deal online before going to any shops. you will save money and energy by doing it. for me, hidalgo is the most affordable place to buy gears just be careful when going there... ;)

hi marjz,

if you buy your DSLR, bring a friend who knows about DSLR.  If you have a friend who are well-oriented with camera especially on the system that you are planning to buy (Canon) better ask a favor from him/her to accompany you. 

for camera stores you can visit hidalgo.. realiable naman ang mga stores dun, like Henrys, Mayers, Avenue and not to mention the others sensya na ha I am not bias from other stores there. I just dont know their names.

go marjz  ;)

The stores in makati are good like DP/JT, definition, dZone and etc pero iba pa din yung adventure of walking around hidalgo and canvassing from different stores  ;D

I forgot to mention pala online shop ni Jerry Tieng (www.jerry.ph/nikon) which is another ok place for good deals. Got an 85mm from him. Nikon only lang nga like Definition.com.ph
