A camera shop at Peninsula Hotel (just next to Funan) that carries a very wide variety.

Very knowledgeable service

For amateurs like me, whenever I buy equipment I enjoy speaking with the shop owners so I can learn more and at the same time make a better decision. The camera shops I've been to at funan are manned mostly by employees without not much knowledge and expertise. A certain passion is missing.

I was glad to be serviced by a young man (who i think is the owner) who was extremely knowledgeable in all sorts of photography equipment. He was able to demo and explain to me the various things I was interested in. And I was looking for a Glidecam stabilizer, something not common at all in Singapore and he had great knowledge of it and showed me how to set it up. No Funan stores even sell this.

I can't say the same for the other employees though, most looked like they weren't very happy to be there. They were playing facebook games and stuff and I think they lack the knowledge and passion for photography. Looks like this was just a job to get by to them and not something they enjoyed doing.

Anyway, whenever I want to buy photography equipment, I now just head to Black Market Camera or Cathay Photo in the building across and completely ignore Funan.
