Where I shop for cameras and related equipment…

I’ve known them for many and I mean many years, and I just purchased a camera from them. While there are many photo stores around, John 3:16 has always given me good advice and I’ve never made a nada-buy from them all these years. It’s not the biggest store in Singapore, but then that has never bothered me and the price is fair.

If you ever want to buy a camera, then look for Sam and tell him I sent you. You might want to use my nick “Uncle …”

Sam can be contacted at:

Tel: 6337-2877

  1. Agreed. I love John 3:16. They’re sincere and helpful and they’re not just trying to make a quick sale.

  2. Agreed too but i’m with MS Color and supplies from ruby and cathay LoL (i’m still on film gosh -_-“)

  3. John 3:16 would have more business from me if they had Pentax items. Then again, Pentax is not really popular in Singapore, and I have trouble getting their stuff in all the other popular stores…

    Jaben: Pentax has a long and chequered history… they seem to have faded away… so sad when they were the first SLR maufacturer to do the return mirror. It was sold in the US in the early days as Honeywell Pentax. The other sad story is Minolta.

  4. Actually BHPhotoVideo (US) would be a reliable place to get from online.
    They’re reputable but not cheap.

    Jaben: I used to go there years ago… I Luv NY

  5. I agree. Sam is a very helpful guy. Even to the cheapest item in the shop. In fact, everyone is a good fella there.

  6. Yep, most of my stuffs I bought at John 3:16, occasionally at TK Photo, but that’s mostly for bags.

  7. Any brand preference?

  8. Sam sold me the best digicam i’ve ever owned, the Ricoh GR-D. all his staff are nice fellas, never flinching even when their shop gets crowded. highly recommended dealer. kinda reminds me of a headphone shop…
