If you want to look for cheap vintage cameras in Singapore, look no further than Sungei Road Flea Market, which is Singapore's oldest and largest flea market.
Sungei Road Flea Market is also known as the Thieves’ Market because all sorts of second-hand merchandise as well as contraband goods used to be sold here. Sungei Road (which means “River Road” in Malay) is a road in Singapore located between Serangoon Road and Jalan Besar, running along the Rochor Canal. At this flea market, one can hunt for old bric-a-brac or second-hand goods to replace one’s faulty or lost item.
As can be seen from the photos, various types of cameras, and camera accessories can be bought here, even Lomo cams!
Cameras and dry box!

When you see something you fancy, do check it out thoroughly before offering to buy it. Also, part of the fun in buying from a flea market is the bargaining process. Hence, don’t forget to always go much lower than what was the starting price.
Unfortunately, part of the site has been closed off to make way for the new Downtown line Sungei Road MRT station construction. The rest of the site would be redeveloped by the Housing and Development Board at a later stage.
If you want to try your luck hunting at this flea market, do visit it before it is gone forever!
