Buying a Practika German camera in Trier

Dear Friends,

I am planning to purchase a DSLR Camera standard applications.

Can I find it in Trier, because I am a great fan of German technology and thinking for the same.

I want to know, is it worth buying especially in terms of price there ? Because I have heard its expensive. If so which market will be the best place in Trier to purchase the camera.

I will also visit, Belgium, Austria, Greece.

To my knowledge Practika does not make a DLSR camera, none on there web site. Leica does, its medium format and cost a fortune.

I've never been in but there is a camera specialty shop just one block away from the Porta Nigra called Ringfoto Kramp. (walking into the city it is the first right of Simeonstrasse) Probably your best selection will be there.

If your port of entry is Frankfurt airport, before you go through immigrfation, check the duty-free stores area to see if a camera store carries the camera you want. Then buy it as youi depart Frankfurt again. It may save you some money on the price of thne camer; it will,certainly save you all of the VAT. Otherwise, if you claim the VAT for a camera you bought somewehere else, they will deduct a handling fee from the VAT refund.
