    All Camera Lovers/Professionals,

    Please DO NOT ever visit Alan Photo Shop. Salesman are too arrogant and show you attitude like "you tell me what do you want, I cannot show you", means they won't even try to ask your requirement and suggest/show you the cameras or anything.

    I heard about this store from my friend then I decided to go to this shop. It worth NOTHING to me. And, I bet it won't to many of you as well.

    Better, go to any other shop in Funan like Courts. I got a better deal in Courts. The most important thing that they were so polite and do not hesitate to show or explain you about the cameras. also, you can go for EMI option if you want without any problem (the camera price should be > S$500).

    A well wisher!

      Do not go to Alan Photo.

      They are dishonest.

      will definitely cheat you if you are a newbie

      I got cheated as I am a newbie buying DSLR. They recommended this Vitacon lense, charged me for $350 while it only costs about $190, how can we still trust them anymore?

      I will go and ask them for refund. If not I will bring the claim to Small Claim Tribunal Court. Lets bring these traders down!

      DO NOT GO THERE

      I am not going to let them get away with this sort of unacceptable trade practice.

      However, if you have done your research and find their price still good, by all means go ahead. I am sure they won't be able to cheat the professional photographers.

        Alan Photo (or more commonly known as AP on the online forums), is one of the more reputable and bigger camera shops in the local scenes. With the others being Cathay Photo, MS Colour and so on.

        Stepping into the shop at its store in Funan, it was crowded with customers shopping for their cameras, lens, DSLR and equipments.

        There was a mix of ang moh and local customers. Inside the shop was also quite a number of staff attending to them. I went in for the first time but it was too crowded and couldn't talk to any of the staff. After half an hour i went back again, this time there were less people there.

        The impressions i got from the staff there were haughty, proud, snobbish. The i-don't-give-a-damn attitude was obvious for all to see.

        I got the apparent feeling that they preferred ang moh customers more, maybe they're easier to be "carrot-head chops". There was this ang moh beside haggling the price with another staff though.

        The price quotes that i got from the bigger reputable shops were all of less the same, but for the same price and poor poor services, i rather go elsewhere to buy.
