    I'll be travelling to China via Dubai (3 nights out and 4 nights on the way
    home) from the UK in August. Now, before you start directing me to the
    travel ngs, this post is a query about Camera prices in Dubai.

    I already own 2 film SLRs (Canon and Minolta) but I want to buy a EOS 350D
    (Rebel XT) and was wondering where I can find info on Dubai prices (info on
    the internet a little thin on the ground). As UAE is a duty free country I
    thought about purchasing there and using it while I was on my 2 week trip to
    China (I can pick things up quick so a day or two happy snapping will get me
    used to the thing). Doing it this way may also help avoid import duty back
    in the UK if it has already been used.

    In the UK the price is around the £600 mark but I was told that Camera
    prices are cheaper in Dubai than even in the US (and Hong Kong for that
    matter, which is where I bought my SLRs a few years back). Is this true?
    Is it worth the hassle waiting until I arrive in Dubai or should I stump up
    the cash and purchase in the UK.

    Thanks
