Hidalgo-Quiapo, A Camera Haven

Nikon D90

If you’re planning of getting a brand new camera, whether it’s a DSLR or a point and shoot, then forget the malls. There’s a camera haven hidden among the sellers of fish and amulets inside Quiapo’s busy public market.  The Hidalgo street.

Hidalgo street is located near the Quiapo church and herein lies a stretch of Philippine’s best camera shops.  Hidalgo’s camera prices usually differs a few thousand lower than those being sold in the malls. Aside from that, most shops sell different kinds of cameras, camera accessories, lenses etc., which you can’t normally find in the shops inside the malls.

I bought my Nikon D90 from Hidalgo and I was able to get a good bargain from Henry’s.  I used the money I saved to buy an extra lens on top of the camera I bought.

To get to Hidalgo, you can take the LRT and hop off in Carriedo Station. From the Carriedo Station, enter fron entrance of  the SM building, which is just behind the station, and proceed to the Watson’s exit. The street behind SM is the Hidalgo Street.

Here’s a clip of the map to Hidalgo:

  1. really? wow, that’s useful for me. I am currently on the lookout for a camera store that sells for a lower price. thank you! also, i hope you don’t mind that i nominated your site as one of the Top 10 Most Influential Blogger for this year. 🙂

  2. hi! i’m new here. i’m trying to find a canon eyepiece extender ep-ex15 for my 40D. can you help me please.. yung ep-ex15II kse maliit. fit siya kaso nga lang maliit tigna. tnx!

  3. some of my blogger friends na medyo napagtitripang maghilig magpicture picture eh dyan bumili sa Henry’s sa Hidalgo. malaki nga nadiscount nila lalo na kung 2 to 3 items bibilhin.

  4. hi guys. help! im a coolege student and im planning to buy dslr camera for my birthday and im planning to buy it in hidalgo. thus, nikon D40 or D60 is still availabe? and how much?
    or even canon dslr camera. im really saving for a dslr camera. help help help!!!

    1. I suggest you go check out the stores first before deciding which camera to buy. If you’re planning to stay on a basic photography level, i suggest you get a D60 or a 1000D. Both are equally good cameras and both of them are in the affordable range. If you’re planning to upgrade lenses, try also to check the prices for the upgrades (lenses and accessories) that you need.

      1. hi po, i am ray anak po ni Mr. Rolly sa santiago city,isabela (Rolly’s Studio) pwede po bang makuha number po ng may contact sa watson kasi nagttxt mo ang father ko per wala pong sumasagot..baka nagbago na daw po ng number.

  6. i’m planning to buy a nikon d60 gold edition. may available pa kaya sa hidalgo? and how will i know na authorized dealers ung pagbibilhan ko? can you recommend some of the good stores there? salamat 😀

  7. available n daw ang d3000 sa hidalgo… any1 knows kng magkno ang d3000 kit.. pls :{ slmat!!! pra mi pagpilian ako between d60 & d3000..

  8. i’m really interested to know more about cameras and photography. but i’m also thinking about practicality.

    i really want to buy a Nikon D40 or D60, but these cameras only capture still images.

    i read n some article (i forgot what exactly) that there are some DSLRs that can capture videos? can anyone enlighten me on this?

    also, I was wondering where I could get my hands on a Samsung ST550?

  15. Ok yung mga post natin mga master hopefully i can now decide na maka bili na ng DSLR ksi gusto lang ksi entry level photo oops eh ano po ba marerecommend nyo po mga master! Nikon brand!

  16. hmmmm i want t have a dslr din.. hmmm and i want to focus sana on micro photography (tama ba term ko?) whta would be a convenient alternatives for macro lenses? hehe nag-uumpisa pa lang kasi ako.. and bdw i would like to start sana on canon 1000d.. i hope i could get feedback.. ^^,

  17. hi there.. ask lang sana ako.. gusto ko kasi sana bumili ng DSLR.. para sa, wala lang.. haha.. kasi been thinking, mas okay ata kung DSLR na lang kesa digicam.. pang picture taking lang talaga yung purpose ko.. not for photog class or whatsoever.. ano po mare-recommend nyo na bilhin?.. and sana yung mura lang.. thank you.. :))

  18. hi! grabe nakuha ko 48k sa mall ung canon eos 500d ko. laki sanang natipid ko kung sa hidalgo.. hehe.

    anyway, madami pa kaya silang available filters for 18mm-55mm kit lens?, and ano kayang advisable na susunod na lens after my kit lens? ung hndi sana masyadong pricey. hehe.

  19. Hi. i am from santiago city,isabela,Rolly’s Studio can you give your Cp # in watson (my number 09165275246)

  20. hi.. im planning to buy dslr cam anu ba maganda na dslr kso un medyo low price lang.. starter pa lang nmn ako sana kit nren sana.. thanks for helping..


      1. Hi Lakwatsero,

        reason for this is, well to go with what you said-

        Lakwatsero said:

        wow. thanks for sharing this one. I hope these can help our friends who want to buy cameras.

        instead of going all the way there, and who are new to photography and has no budget at all since DSLRs are still quite expensive even if its in hidalgo.

        I have no use for the 1000D since i already got my 500D(also in Hidalgo). If you find it uneccessary or offensive you may remove my post then. 🙂


          1. Well, 500D looks like 1000D hahaha! but way better.hehehe! extra cash wouldnt hurt as well. its definitely in good condition.

            i might also say hello to nikon hahaha!

    1. i believe its still at 42k, hopefully there are still stocks for you, or you mind end up getting one at a higher price, but its worth the added cash. its fun using the 500D

    1. i was at meyer’s yesterday. i was a bit hesitant coz the place was packed with customers. and they didn’t have what i was looking for so i headed back to henry’s after trying squeezing myself in the meyer crowd. mang ramon’s shop is demand among photographers.

  22. Anyone knows where to have a DSLR personalized/customized? particularly the Body? reason for it is id like to put a name onto the Body itself just like the “500D” name at the lower part of the body?


      1. How bout stores that use the “strong” kind of material for those stickers?! so that it just wouldnt wear off.

        since 500D was out of stock in Hidalgo, im assuming a lot of users own 500D so it would be nice to have it personalized. bad news, was informed by Canon, warranty will not be honored anymore if personalized. haha!

        im avoiding exchnage of cams hehe! serial number is quite long

    1. older 2nd-3rd hand ones i guess? 🙂
      d40 says to be at 19,500-22k (brand new) which is a lower end model (6mp).id suggest you get d60 or my 1000D hahaha!

        1. 15k?

          brand new d40 (2006)(6mp) sells for 20-22k. you may try looking in hidalgo for a 2nd hand d40 to fit your budget.

          d60 or d3000 competes with 1000D which is at 26k.

          1000D (2008)but i got mine last april 2009(10mp) sells for 28.5k brand new in hidalgo. im selling it for 23k.ok 22K. haha!

  23. Lakwatsero, i read somewhere that Nikon Lenses are more expensive than canon? Therefore they suggest buying canon if you intend to get several kinds of lenses. if not then Nikon will be nice.except the warranty?

    1. yeah a bit of a prob ang service ng nikon ‘coz we don’t have an official nikon service center here in RP. pero based naman sa experience ko, mas tumatagal ang nikon compared to canon. i sent two canon rebels for servicing before because of shutter problems. hehehe. never pa with nikon. this is my second nikon body. 😀

  24. Sir Lakwatsero magkno bili mo nung D90 mo? mahal kasi dito sa middle east DSLR. Pa suggest naman kkung anong dapat kong gawin kung bibili ako nang D90, kailngan ba doy lang bilhin ko or Kit na. Salamat nang marami

  25. Sir Lakwatsero magkno bili mo nung D90 mo? mahal kasi dito sa middle east DSLR. Pa suggest naman kung anong dapat kong gawin kung bibili ako nang D90, kailngan ba body lang bilhin ko or Kit na. Salamat nang marami

    1. I got my D90 Body for 45k. Di ko na kinuha yung kit lens kasi feeling ko di ko rin magagamit since i was planning of getting a telephoto and a portrait lens. I bought the 35mm f/1.8 instead. 😀 super sulit.

      1. is tokina a better brand than Sigma or Tamron? i have a sigma and im happy with it though im planning to buy a tamron or any other brand just so i have a collection haha! ofcourse i wont get a canon since its too00 branded. Hopefully nikon will come up with something similar with 550D/7D and or a better D90 haha!

    1. ah ok how much nman ang 500d mu if benta mu hehhehe planing 2 buy kasi i nid it na kaso kulang budget thats why im planing 2 buy second hand anu ba mas mganda d3000 or 1000d hehheh thankz

  26. I’m currently planning to buy a DSLR, could u help me choose between Canon EOS 500D and Nikon D5000. Gusto ko sana yong pangmatagalan, user friendly, at ok sa maliwanag at lalo na sa dim or low light. thanks.

    1. get my 500D ahahaha! pero seriously, i went for 500D kase feeling ko masisira agad ung lcd ng D5000 although cool sya kase any angle. 500D 920 dots, 230 lng ata D5000. iba rin presyo. i think ok both cams sa dilim, hitech na cams ngyn kase haha!

        1. thats 1 reason y i went with canon, 3 yr warranty kase, nikon bbyad ka extra sa columbia ba un? hehhe! but u gotta think y nga ba 3 yrs? sirain siguro? haha!

  27. hi po! since its my first time to buy a DSLR, do i need to buy the camera with the columbian warranty? or pwedeng wala po? kung baga malas ko lng talga kung ang matapat sakin ay defective

    1. you can actually check the camera for defects before buying it. the CDSC (columbia) warranty is for free servicing in case your camera breaks after you bought it. 🙂 it’s an advantage if you get the warranty. camera body repairs are usually expensive. 🙂

  28. mga sir, I’m just a 4th year h.s. student and I’m planning to buy my first DSLR. After graduation siguro. Pero ‘di ko pa sure kung makakabili ako. ahaha.

    I’m planning to buy a Nikon D60, kaso nga lang phased out na daw (sa mga malls). Meron pa kaya nito sa mga shops sa Quiapo? Ok sana yung D3000 kaso may mga features na nawala. Kasama rin sa list ko ‘yung Canon EOS 1000d tska EOS 450D. Ano sa tingin nyo mas maganda para sa first DSLR?

    salamat. : )

    1. d3000 is good, looks compact. d5000 is cool. since HS ka palang, 1000D kana mura pa hehehe if walang d60. but go for d3k un pamalit sa d60 daw

      1. so better nga if i buy d90,user friendly ba yun?beginner pa lang kasi ako.im planning to get enrolled sa photography class.nwei, thanks for the info.=)

  29. san kya pwede mag palinis ng lens eos 300d canon po pla 2. may dumi po kc lens nya efs 18-55 mm. tsaka ano po kya yung digital flash na mura para dito sa camera ko. wala me pambili ng mahal e.. thks.

  30. hello! which has cheaper DLSR cameras, singapore or hidalgo?
    where can i buy affordable canon cameras? please post prices from Hidalgo stores. i will be buying this week. and i dont know what model and where to buy. my budget is 20 to 30K. please help. thanks!

    1. kahit anong cam okey. Nasa gumagamit lng yon at importante darating ka sa point na you make your camera your SLAVE! That means galamay mo ang camera mo. Hence,it’s up to the user. Maganda before buy ng cam make some research kung ano fitting sa way of life mo para magEnjoy ka sa cam. I have Nikon D70 and Olympus digiCam and I like using either of them.

  31. @Patrick
    it depends, but i see more nikon users.


    Henrys. just look at the place haha! it should look credible.

    @apple ortiz

    just send me an email reh_kow@yahoo.com


    500D, but it depends if you’re into the tilt-and-swivel LCD which is only at 230k dots as compared to 920k of 500D.


    i think 42k kit 38k body maybe a little bit cheaper.

  43. its my first time to buy po ng dlsr? canon po ba maganda and what model ? ano po difference pag bumili ka sa hidalgo at sa mall? thanks po!!

  44. @permalink

    malaki din po difference ng PRICE sa mall at sa hidalgo. makakamura ka tlga sa hidalgo. pansinin mo konti lng nagbebenta sa mall dahil nga sa mas mura yung benta sa hidalgo. mga brandnew din po yun at may warranty pa.

  45. hi how much ang d5000 ngaun sa hidalgo?any updates guys? pati d90 grey units both ha and may alam b kayo other seller ng pentax k-x dslr other that jonathan sia of camerahauz?

  46. alam ko hindi grey units sa hidalgo . pero 35k na lang sila same price with the grey units . tinanong ko kanina so dun ka na sa hidalgo may warranty pa

  47. 35k na nga ba yung d5k sa hidalgo?
    bilis magmahal parang gasolina..hehe
    actually kakabili ko lng ng d5k nung sabado (05/29/2010)@ 30k sa henry’s. mahal na nga yun para sakin. kac enovation lng na bag at 4gig lng freebies nakuha ko.

    pero satisfied pa rin ako sa ganda ng mga shots nito..=)

  48. pakshet nayan nung nirereview ko d5k 27k nlnlg price bat ngayun nag ballon n ng 35k?bkit anu reason?ung acceptable n reason ha.lhat b tumaas?pati d90?

    1. sir because after D3000 was released Hat’s off to D5000 that the CMOS sensor of it is worth investing compare to D3000. Which end up your photos Noise effect.

      If you have the D5K para na rin nag D90 ka , but AF-s lens will work manually.

      Its a Market flagdown that D5000 is worth buying , that’s why prices maintained to more demands and units returns for D3000.

  49. 1 more thing kung bibili ako ng d5k for example lng ha anu2 ang mganda ijoin sa kanya n lenses?hmm for portrait syempre,wide angle din para sa mga tanawin and syempre zoom for birds and etc. anu2 mganda?

    1. If you’re into landscape get a wider lens.

      But if you’re just new in photography , better start off sa Kitlens , for 18mm you can do even better than spending an UWA lens.

  50. @bot

    pre wag ka na lang bumili ng kit lens nya (18-55mm) kac cgurado ako mabibitin ka dun.
    body lang bilhin mo tapos bumili ka ng 18-200mm VR lens. pwede na yun.

    kung nag-uumpisa ka pa lng sa photography hindi pa advisable yung mga maxadong mahal na lens. on the way malalaman mo din ano kelangan mong mga lens. depende kac yan sa preference mo.

  51. ahh ok kz covered naman ng 18-200 ang 18-55 dv?ok naman ba sa tingin nyu ang pentax k-x 40k php sa camerahauz body+18-55mm+55-300mm lens

  52. Lakwatsero Blog good day.

  56. When you buy cameras and or camera accessories from Hidalgo, of course they are cheaper compared to the malls. This is because Hidalgo is a grey market. They sell “imported” cameras and accessories but no USA Canon warranties. Kaya mura. If you plan to buy EF lenses with L, think twice before buying from a grey market. Dahil pag nasira ito without warranties, di ko alam kung maayos ang after service support sa Hidalgo

    1. Most stores have an option for an official warranty. Hidalgo is not purely grey. The items sold in Hidalgo (for non-grey items) are cheaper because the operational cost of the store in Hidalgo is way lower as compared to the stores in Malls. I agree with your thoughts in buying grey products.

  69. hello, i have a Metz AF 48-1 External Flash, i use it with my Pentax cam, i am so enjoying the flash but unfortunately it blew up, not the bulb itself but something inside of the unit just goes “boom” and dies, i opened it and found out that the transformer is busted, by any hope, does any body knows if there is a shop that fixes flash in Hidalgo? Thanks

  70. the current price of nikon D3000 is 23.5 in henry’s and the rest is 24k. don’t come on sundays in henry’s because they are closed. i don’t know if they also closed on saturdays.

  71. Good day,. Gusto ko bumili ng DLSR this year and ask ko lang kung my price list kayu ng gantong unit thanks
    please help me 🙂


    1. kakagaling ko lang sa watson photo shop kahapon. yung price nung nikon d5000 is 29,500. pero sabi sakin nung may-ari nung shop, malapit na daw mag-phase out yun. and he recommended the d3100 which is cheaper at 26,500. mas bago nga daw yun. hope this helped. 🙂

    1. Today at Hidalgo (16 March 2011) and a D7000 was going for PHP 52500 (body only) at AVENUE. Kit is 10K more but would not recommend the kit lens!
      Unfortunately for AVENUE they had no D700 FX in stock so got that at HENRY’s, which offered good service and best price of all (better than Mayers (shabby store) and Watsons. Important to canvass to the 5 best known stores there. Good luck!

  72. hi, ask ko lang po sana how much un lumix gf1 at lx5? i hope you could help me. thanks. including po un d3100. thanks.

    Thank you in advance.
