Hong Kong Analogue Camera Trail – Matsuya Camera – Tsim Sha Tsui

Matsuya Camera

R0010284In the same building as Shogun, Matsuya is also worth a look. Matsuya Camera has a very extensive range of Nikon lenses – probably one of the better ranges outside of David Chan’s store for both Nikon bodies and lenses.

They have some beautiful examples of Nikon F, FA, FM2, FM3as and other collectable and useable cameras. The prices were pretty reasonable – a Nikon F3T was going for about $3680 HK which seemed OK to me. There was a great collection of F3 bodies – one of my favourite all time cameras.

Contax G systems were a feature of their stock – maybe I just notice them more as one of my dream cameras! So, if you are after a Contax G system, Matsuya is a great place to start, particularly if you need a body. Some medium format gear, but not enough to suggest a specialty in one particular system.

One of the things I loved about Matsuya Camera is all the stock was clearly priced – to at least give you a starting point for negotiations and to make sure you are not wasting anyone’s time. Some of the stores in HK do not mark everything, and it can be a little annoying if you are used to having a price tag to kick things off…

Matsuya had some interesting cameras like a Contax TVS, Contax T2, and a good range of half frame Olympus PENs. It was a little hard to find – I had to ask the guys at Shogun where to find the store!  

Just look for the entrance to the interior mall on Tsim Sha Tsui Mansion – or ask the guys at Shogun…
