    Unhappy Canon Handy Cam

    I've just bougth Canon DC310 in TST, however, when I compare the price in amazon.com I've found out that I was overpriced. It cost me 7,200 HKD (with memory card & CD rewritable). I'd like to know if I indeed paid a price more than it's average selling price.

    Thanks.

    You bought one of these?

    If you bought it on Nathan Rd in TST, you probably got ripped off.

    Well, yeah. If you can confirm that the same camera is <USD300 online.

    There are some reasonable stores on TST. But there are many bad ones. How to tell a bad one? It'll have lots of bright neon signage, probably be on Nathan Rd, and it should scream 'tourist trap' to anyone with a rudimentary bullshit detector.

    I see, well I compare the price in Shenzhen electronic city and it looks to me that I did have a good bargain price in Hng Kng. However, as compared to the amazon.com price, it seems pretty much far fetch. Well I guess, if you would compare the handy cam price in the U.S., naturally it would be a lot lower, correct?
