Nikon DSLR Digital Camera Prices In Thailand

While browsing Nikon DSLR cameras in Bangkok this week, I thought I’d make a note of the current prices of the major Nikon models for anyone interested in comparing prices of Nikon cameras in Thailand versus their home country.

It’s a common assumption that everything is cheaper in Thailand. I wish! Electronic goods are sadly subject to a hefty domestic tariff and so their prices are not as competitive as Hong Kong or Singapore. (To get an idea of Hong Kong and Singapore Nikon DSLR prices, select “Hong Kong” or “Singapore” from the drop down menu below and you’ll see current Nikon Ebay auctions in either country. There are many vendors selling brand new gear via Ebay which will reflect the street price).

As I’ve said before in my Buying Cameras In Thailand article, if you’re from the UK you might find it cheaper to buy in Thailand, but if you’re from the USA you can probably get it cheaper at home.

This is particularly annoying given that one of the major Nikon factories is located just outside Bangkok! I’ve sadly not heard any anecdotes about enterprising customers getting significent discounts from buying from the factory direct.

The other big problem for bargain hunters right now is that the Thai Baht is remaining very strong in the global financial crisis – the British Pound in particular is extremely weak against the Baht, which makes me weep on an almost daily basis.

Here are the Nikon DSLR prices in Thailand as of December 2008:

  1. Of course, if you come across my stolen one you may find it a bit cheaper. Thank goodness for my Infinite Visa’s insurance program…..

    I know it was taken between Siem Reap and Phenom Phen at the usual bus stop – I believe it was when there was a bunch of kids trying to sell me treats…. I thought it was secure but I was wrong…..

    So I had to buy a camera in PP and it certainly was more than in Canada but you need one….. or at least I did!

  2. Ouch, that’s not good. Lucky you were insured!

  3. I too had all my Nikon DSLR gear stolen on my first day and not insured. I replaced it with a budget £30 film automatic point n’ shoot. Happy Days…
