Bic Camera, Tokyo

Just had the opportunity of visiting Bic Camera in Yurakcho, Tokyo with a view to buying a DSLR in UK (exchange rate means it would not make economic sense to buy in Japan).
Fantastic shop with every camera you could possibly think of and incredibly helpful staff.
Anyway after a couple of hours faffing about trying stuff out I`ve decided to go with the Nikon 60D. Nice and chunky and feels a lot more nicer than other models in the same price range.
By the way, the Canon Kiss range feel very plasticky, light and cheap. The bottom of the range is like a kids toy; I put it down for fear of breaking it.

Re: Bic Camera, Tokyo

well, hopefully sushi are not that affected by exrate...

probably Takeya (a big discount department store) worth trying as well - you might not find there the latest models, but their prices are quite competitive. being a discount they accept cash only, though... They are about 2-min walk along Kasuga-Dori from North Exit of Okachimachi Station on the JR Yamanote Line, very near Exit #3 of Nakaokachimachi Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line.

even you won't find the d60 there, there are some small eateries along JR line (towards ueno) with a distinct local feeling. oh & a fish market is smwhere there as well... quite an addictive place...

enjoy your time

No, I was there last year and stayed in a hotel around that area.
