    Long time ago, I would have say yes… but right now… you have probably less risks & best prices by shopping online on amazon these products than going to an “exotic” shop in Lanzarote.

    Agree with the above comment – at least yo can always take it back to a reputable shop – and you usually get extra’s like memory cards too.

    Alot of the cameras and electrical goods are very old models, I think you can get just as goods deals online if you shop around, and you will have an “english” guarentee.

    The camera shops in Play Blanca have a quite poor reputation and ive read stories in magazines etc where some stores were putting pressure on holiday makers forcing them to purchase goods !

    Lesley is right in her reply.. Lots of the models are older out of date / end of line items. How do i know this ? … errrrrrm , , I purchased such an item .. It turned out to be an out of date camera model by cannon. The camera works fine.. even now , however the software supplied for installing on my pc to transfer photos is not correct ! ,,,, Which i didnt find out until i got back to the UK

    Theres no need to purchase there now ,,, Too many god deals on the internet to be had !

    The original camera stores and gift stores in Playa Blanca got established and financially fat from the period of years when the cruise ships used to stop off the coast and ferry passengers ashore for some duty free shopping !

    This then stopped ,,, although i think theres talk of trying to get the cruise ships to start visiting again . or was ! i dont know the latest info on that .
