    Ok, so I want to buy one of these (due to appear in shops in June) Canon S2 IS cameras.

    I will be travelling in late June from UK to NZ via Dubai & Singapore (yeah - 29 hours take-off to landing & in the rear as well!!).

    Does anyone have any recent experience of comparative camera prices between UK (inc VAT) vs airport prices in Dubai & Singapore? I travel that route often, but seldom look at camera prices (usually in the lounges, online looking at MR - I need to get a life!).

    Would appreciate some help.

    Oops, I thought you said HK in the other thread.

    Anyway, I PMed you. ;)

    Singapore should be cheap. Its cheap for clothes and stuff.

    Not sure about Dubai, but surely the UAE is expensive, as it's quite a rich country if I remember correctly. :confused:

    Yeah - flight prices are cheaper on Emirates.
    Thanks for the PM & link. The pre-release retail price for that camera on that site is GBP380. The same camera is being quoted in UK at around GBP360, so there's not much in it aside from bargaining in HK.

    Thanks for the info.
