hello, i want to buy a digital camera for my trip in thailand and laos. I can afford up to 200euros (250$USD). is it really cheaper to get one in Bangkok rather than here (france) and can any one reccommend one for that money
Thanks in advance

Welcome to Travelfish!
Cameras here may be slightly cheaper but on a $250 camera you'll probably only be saving maybe $20 (depending on camera, outlet etc). Meanwhile if you buy it at home you'll get a guarantee that you can actually use should something go awry with the camera.

i recommended you to buy Olympus digital camera which has 3 meters water resistance function. It is good for taking photos when doing snokel. It cost $350 USD. The newest model has 5 meters and much much expensive.

You can shop around from the place like Pantip Plaza (Bangkok) and of course, you must bargain.
Another shop I know is Foto File (1st fl. of MBK), near siam square.
I have no idea about the model - personally, i prefer Canon but not in the A-series.

Bangkok is not esp. cheaper for digital cameras. Just make sure to get international warranty if you do decide to get on there.

Another thing to keep in mind is the manufacturer's warranty. With Canon, the warranty is only valid in the country where the camera was purchased. You'll likely save yourself a lot of stress and time by buying locally should something goof-up on you down the road. And, as mentioned above, the prices aren't that much less in Bangkok.
