Here is a site with useful tips and links to stores in HK. DO NOT but anything in Tsim Sha Tsui (e.g. Nathan Road). Mongkok is where you should head to. It's easy to take the MTR there.

Hi, I am from Hong Kong.  Fully agree not to buy camera in Tsim Sha Tsui.  Go to Mongkok as said in the advice link.  Wing Shing Photo Supplies is certainly a big and professional photo equipment store in Hong Kong.

I had also lived in Shanghai for some years and do not see any really good place to buy camera. And more expensive than in Hong Kong.  So I still suggest you buy your camera in Hong Kong.

Remember, if you buy in Hong Kong, usually there is 7 - 10 days you can exchange your electronic goods if there is defect with the goods but usually it is not refundable like in USA.

Anyway, good travel and enjoy your new camera.
