Echo all previous reviews. When you go in it looks like a proper respectable shop. My salesman was Tony who seemed very helpful and genuine and i was talked into buying the axpro lens. Originally quot... read more »
If you like wasting your money to con men, this is the place to be. They take advantage of foreigners and tourists in this area, and try to deceive you into putting your trust in them. Don't. All they want is your hard-earned money. I went here looking for an apple lightning cable which, in the UK, costs £25. I was disgusted at their attempt to charge me $70, for a most certain fake cable that didn't even come in the correct packaging (or any packaging for that matter). As soon as I told them what a waste of money it was, the price dropped. Obviously they were just making up their own prices to rip people off. Eventually I managed to barter and get the price at $50 and due to desperation, I had no other choice but to waste my money.
Buyers BEWARE, I wish I had seen the reviews before I went there. The prices get made up as they go along, they get you to trust them and then rip you off big-time. Don't sign their forms as you sign away any consumer rights you may have had, record the visit if you can and pay by credit card. As far as I can tell they are not authorised Sony dealers, nothing is priced, I got ripped off by about 250 dollars paying 490USD for something I could have got for less than 230USD in the USA or around 190USD in the UK. Forget about going back to complain, they are to unscrupulous to bother with you. They should score zero stars but that is not an option.

I really hadn't planned at stopping at this place, but stopped next door to look at something else. I had forgotten to grab a HDMI cord for my trip, so figured perhaps they might have a cheap one on hand. First thing I noticed about the store that it seemed rather dirty and many of the boxes were very faded on a lot of things in the store. Eh, no big deal, though. So, just walking around and looking through the cables for HDMI cables. I finally spot some, which were name brand, which really wasn't what I was looking for as I could go to Wal-mart and just get one there for about $8-12. The person working there had to be alerted that there was even a customer in the store by someone else and when he walked over, my girlfriend asked about a "cheapie" HDMI. He gets very offended very quickly and says "What's a cheapie?" I explained I was just looking to see the price on his cheapest HDMI cable. He immediately grabs one off the shelf, and tells me $25. I almost fell over laughing right away. I was willing to pay a reasonable price, but not $25 for a single cable. Not to mention that the one he grabbed wasn't even a standard HDMI cable, but a standard to mini cable. I simply told him I wasn't interested and was about to walk out. He then said $20 and said I still did not want it. Told him that we were just looking because we meant to bring one and forget. He said, "That's at home, you're here." He then asked what I wanted to pay, $5? (Which hey...I didn't expect that cheap at least on a name brand.) He said, "Maybe you go to McDonalds. Maybe they sell one that cheap." I just bit my tongue and began to walk out and then he made a snide remark of, "You made me get up for nothing." Really? I made you get up to see about a possible sale? You know, actually having to get up and do your job? That would be soooo hard to do, I'm sure. We both just walked out and left. Definitely not worth the time in visiting anytime soon. I would avoid this place like the plague. They are very rude and I have a bad feeling about their cameras and lenses. There is a Grey Market out there, but I don't even think they are buying from overseas. I have a sinking feeling that their stuff is actually fake. Certain? No, but just a gut feeling.
Don't buy from this place!!!! I wish I had the time and money to stand outside in front of the store with a sign to warn people. I paid $350 for a lens worth $50. The guy claim to be working for his cousin and when I mention I was in the military, he said he was too giving me a $50 discount. The starting price was $400.
Stay Away. Sky high prices and they'll keep telling you you need an AXPRO HD super-wide angle "attachment" lens that they'll claim works with most every lens to improve all your wide angle photos via letting in more light. The sales pitch will include an online AXPRO website showing retail prices of around $1,000 for various size versions. Later I learned the website was sales bait to make you think you were getting a good deal if the sold it to you for less than $500. I came in needing a simple head/camera attachment for a monopole costing $50 and they fitted me with one. Although there were no prices on any of there merchandize they quickly told me the camera head mount was $156. But the salesman said if I bought the AXPRO HD attachment lens too he'd give me a great package price. I worried the AXPRO HD wouldn't work well with my new Sony A6000 and two Sony lens but he stated not only would it work it would make my wide angle shots for video concert/band/entertainer recording at night at Disney much better. He used adapter lens rings to fit the AXPRO onto my two lens to show how it would attach and then pulled out a booklet of photos to show what I could expect in results. While I was skeptical of it's value he keep insisting it would improve my video and photo wide-angle recordings/shoots. Finally after he lowered the price to what seem might be reasonable assuming it worked like he claimed and me needing to get to Disney I agree to buy it and try it out that night and next day. Bottom line it didn't work with my either of my two A6000 lens as the salesman claimed. When you return for a refund or exchange credit you're tolled "ALL SALES ARE FINAL" no exchanges either. At no time did any of the salesman state they had a NO REFUNDS NO EXCHANGES" policy. The had NO SIGNS prominently displayed "ALL SALES FINAL" as you'd expect from even traveling liquidators. Stay Away. The place Preys on Tourist who leave town and have little time to complain about being ripped-off.
