Quest: Find Digital Cameras

For last few days I’m quite hyped up to buy a decent Digital camera for moi-self. So after a thorough ONLINE survey … yesterday I thought let’s give Islooitte markets a chance to have me asking all “Intelligent” questions…!

Definitely NOT something I was Looking for ;~D

So my first step obviously was Blue area I roamed round and round to locate some shop with digital cameras and guess what couldn’t find any … at least on the East side there was none I could locate so I asked a mobile dealer he named few shops adjacent to Fresco sweets … so I was like OK let’s see … there were few electronics shops there but they were closed … (hmmm …. Did I mentioned I went after Iftaar time) … !

Then I remembered I saw some digital cameras in that Sam Plaza in Jinnah Super so we wandered off for there … I was wrong they were yet again all-illuminating mobile shops … GOD … what if anyone wants to buy a Digital Camera in Islamabad … leaving the variety thing alone … I couldn’t find one single shop offering even few selected models …. :~(

Going to Jinnah Super and not going to Illusions … Naah … not my style … :-)

So guess what Illusions had few (and I mean it very few) digital camera models to offer and that too of Nikon only … no Sony … no Minolta … No Cannon … Gosh …!

Well I agree that Islamabad is not acclaimed as some “Shopper’s Paradise” but still … obviously not to mention the much enchanting and all-pride song of Islamabad I sing in front of everyone … :”>

So any Digital Camera vendor you wana suggest in my still-lovely Islamabad???

    huh What does Love of City have to do with buying digital Cameras??? You guys sounds like high school kids… Well! we definitely need especial vendors who deal in such electronics. However Try Pindi or order online from “B & H Photo” ( in New York City. Dont give up, good luck… Isloo Rules…
