Hi, I will be in Dubai or Muscat this December. I am trying to buy a digital SLR camera Canon 20D. I live in UK where the prices are much higher. Does anyone what is the price of Canon 20D in Dubai and what is a good shop to buy it in ? Will I get it inside the airport or I need to go out.
thanks a ton,

I was in Dubai last year, and I can assure you that the best place to buy cameras, or any electrical equipment, is in the souk markets by the river.

There are streets of markets and stalls, each selling items from cameras to watches, DVD players to hard to get light bulbs.

Have fun!

What happens if it goes wrong within the warranty period and you are out of the country. Are you going to take it back?
