    Camera Stores Florida

    I am thinking of buying a camera while i am on holiday in Florida.
    Camera i am after is Panasonic FS7.
    Can anyone recommend a good camera shop in orlando and does anyone know if the camera would work out cheaper than £131 (Dixons Tax Free).

    Thanks.

    rep for good advice.

    Don't know about dedicated camera shops, but can lead you in the right direction of electical stores you could try website of first, also don't forget that each state in the US has its own sales tax to be applied on top of the $ price. Florida being 6%

    [url]www.bestbuy.com[/url]
    [url]www.walmart.com[/url]
    [url]www.target.com[/url]
    [url]www.staples.com[/url]
    [url]www.officemax.com[/url]

    for example the fs7 is only $159 + 6% sales tax in bestbuy ]http//ww…960

    *edit* The Best Buy one is online only offer, cannot collect from store, if you have a US address it can be shipped to though, it despatches in 1 day.

    Also whilst over there, utilise the site fatwallet.com, nowhere near as nicely laid out as HUKD, but you may spot some rebate coupons or good prices on other things.

    Other things to note, it may be worth posting in an envelope your receipt back to the UK and make sure no price tags are remaining on the box, in other words do as much as you can just in case you get stopped in customs to avoid any duty charges on re-entry into the UK. Also ensure the charger for the camera battery is 110-240V (It should be, but if not you would need a stepdown converter)

    There are plenty of camera shops on international drive, but they seemed a little dodgy to me when I was there (October last year)... we got the hard sell when we went in. Things were priced really high, and they then tried haggling with us knocking money off but them still being over priced. We couldn't get out of one store, as he kept asking how much we wanted to pay, when we were just browsing, lol!

    I'd go to the Florida Mall, but not sure if they'd be cheaper than over here to be honest.

    I have already posted a major electical retailer in the US (Best Buy) that has it vastly cheaper at $159+6% sales tax compared to 133 quid works out at just over 100 quid and includes a free 2GB card.

    Thanks, I often have bought electrical items from the US (family there) to bring back to the UK...do the same with clothes or anything you buy if you want to keep the receipts..dont have them on you!....make sure you cut all tags off clothes too, just in case.

    Also be aware not all electrical items have international warranty, it can be a gamble you take for a saving. I got a fantastic new compact camera on clearance from Office Max whilst there in April, display model but was as new, definitely worth trying all the major retailers as I have mentioned.

    Enjoy your trip and check out [url]www.fatwallet.com[/url] for any further deals.

    I bought a few electricals from Walmart, much cheaper than here, but saying that we were getting $2 to the pound
