64 ratings | 16920 views
I am on the hunt for cheap camera gear in particular a canon g7x and camera tripod. We also go around Mong Kok markets in Kowloon and look for cheap electronics in Hong Kong world travel diary part two • SUBSCRIBE IF YOU'RE NEW - http://bit.ly/2wPrWft Full Blog Article: http://marlonvlogger.co.uk/hong-kong/cheap-electronics-cheap-camera-gear-20-off/ If you are in this part of the world, you have to do some Hong Kong shopping. You'll be surprised how far your budget can go when it comes to cameras and electronics. Nathan road is a cool place to walk down, at night you see all the neon signs, but there are loads of cool gadget and electronic shops selling cheap electronics, cheap camera gear, you name it they have it. If you are looking for a cheap camera shop, this is the place to go. I was looking in camera shops camera shopping for a tripod or to buy a cheap vlog camera cheap such as the Canon G7X mark ii or Sony RX100 in Hong Kong if the price was right. You do have to be careful though as not all stuff is as legit as it may appear. Fortress and Broadway are the main electronic shops you can trust however they are a bit more pricey - closer to UK prices. I found a cool place called Wing Shing Photo Supplies which had the best prices at the time I went. In particular the prices for the G7X were very good. The RX100 had less reductions overall.

Mong Kok is a cool place to visit and grab a bargain. Anyone else been or planning to go? If you love camera gear and buying equipment its well worth going as there are so many stores to have a look around.

Congratulations on the baby mate.

+Matt Gage yes HK is cool indeed. I’ve just had my first born so martial arts is off the cards for a little bit but do plan to get back in to it so will have to nip by when I do. Ultimate dream would be doing martial arts in HK or China.... or in a film haha

I love Hong Kong. Would love to go back there. You should come over to Sheppey to train some Kung Fu. Loads head over to HK every year for a gathering and demonstration. I hope to go there in the next few years.

Mongkok is a really awesome place, the density of the shop houses, the people, the streets, the markets and the buildings make it a prime cinematic area to film stuff. Time lapses here work really well, regretted not vlogging while I was there a few years back. Damn I didn't go to this Wing Shing Photo shop in Hong Kong back then, could have gotten a new camera there! Yeah glad you know that there are a lot of dodgy shops around there, couldn't be more careful mate!

In general I researched online a lot of shops before going and always looked for multiple sources confirming. I didn’t go in any shops I hadn’t heard of. With the exception of a cash in hand cheap memory stick which was a risk but the shop was rammed and I figured it would be bad business if none of their cards worked... that time was a gamble though. The shop I bough my camera was defo legit, look and feel was professional also. Thanks for the tip about using video for time lapse. I guess only down side is amount of storage but handy if you don’t have that mode.

I see I see definitely will check that place out when I am back in HK, the products from the shops are in proper quality right? Yeah speaking about deals I do get pretty sceptical if a super good deal pops up, can't trust every deal, how do you discern between the dodgy ones and the legitimate ones? Actually you could do a time lapse by recording the video in the same spot for a certain amount of time and then using your video editor to compress the footage into a couple of seconds!

I think you hit the nail in the head... the place is awesome. So much to do there... mainly shopping haha. Defo recommend that shop if you go back. I’m sure there are other decent priced shops but unless you know the area and do a lot of shopping around. That was the best one I could find, at least 30-50 cheaper than other shops in the same area when looking at a 400-500 price range so probably better on more expensive stuff. But also depends on the brand and deals available. Unfortunately I didn’t do any time lapse either, my 70d couldn’t do them but the g7x I bought out there does.

I have been putting off buying a cheap camera for awhile... guess I am not up for the journey to Hong Kong : (

thanks for the advice!

I think your channel is doing well so far. If you get an audience then switch your content it may have a negative impact on your audience so maybe consider introducing a small bit of vlogging here and there now. Your phone can work as a good starting point. My first few videos were done on an iphone 6S and I was happy with that. Plenty of good vlogging cameras out there also, I ended up buying the G7X mark II while I was out in Hong Kong. I did a short video on it while I was out there. Then the most of the video I took in Hong Kong there after was shot on the G7X. Very impressed with it.
JimmyFungus (8 months ago)
Well, I was planning on maybe doing some vlogging, but I think there is no point to it till I get some decent channel growth so I don't really need one at present.
Marlon King (8 months ago)
Yeah it is a bit of a trek. If you are there by chance, defo take advantage.. always good to know. You could always stop off there on a stop off flight to another destination. What camera you looking at for your next purchase?
