Hong Kong is one of the best places to hunt for 1st Party Camera stuff like Lenses and 3rd Party stuff like Filters, strobes and other whatnot Camera Accessories.

This is because she is usually being used by the rest of Asia as a Port to distribute many electronic products and (2) its in China  – Where all the 3rd parties come from.

If you need some Places to Spark off your Search for Camera stuff, this post might be able to help you!

(1) Golden Computer Arcade @ Sham Shui Po MTR

Basically, Sham Shui Po is like the NEXUS of all electronics for Hong Kong. Stuff there are cheap and really. You name it, you can surely find it.
