Bangkok’s Fotofile Camera Shop at MBK Shopping Center

with 11 comments

Fotofile is one of the world’s greatest camera shops.  Not only do they have a large inventory of new and used cameras, they have accessories of every type in stock. They have at least three outlets at MBK. I travel frequently and I have never run across a more complete store. Including Singapore and Hong Kong.  And their prices are competitive.  If you are a tourist, you will get a 7% VAT rebate when you depart Thailand.

See Platial map in right sidebar for location.  And this link for prices.

  2. Hi Sakari. The airport has a large selection of cameras, both point and shoot and Sony DSLR’s. Also a large selection of videocams.

  5. Hi,

    can you tell me if fotofile sells 35mm photographic film, & roughly how much for?
    also, do they do developing of 35mm film? how much?

    • Hi Ashlee,

      Fotofile does sell 35mm film but I don’t have an idea what the prices are. They will develop film but again, i don’t know the prices. In general, processing of film is cheaper in Thailand than the US and Europe. Sorry I couldn’t answer your questions.

  7. Hello I was looking for the Panasonic Tz7 today at MBK and the lowest price was.. 15:000 bath = about 325 Euro… crazy because in Nl I can get it for 225 euro.. Good luck.! Panasonic is maybe not the best brand to buy in MBK (BK) but I love the camera.. mine died a couple off days ago.

    • Camera prices can significantly differ from market to market and it is good if you know your prices. Sometimes MBK can be a bit high so you have to bargain hard and visit more than one shop. And remember you will get 7% VAT refund at the airport.

      Sometimes shops offering gray market camera have the best prices. Also check out Fortune Tower.

      I also like the Panasonic line and have a couple that are hard to beat including the GF1.
