Buying Camera & Outdoor Equipment

by chocolatecat

Hi

Can anyone tell me where to buy camera equipment in Buenos Aires? I'd like to buy a lens for my canon eos 400d. I guess it might be cheaper there than here in Europe.

Also, I want to buy some outdoor gear (gore tex jacket, sandals...)

Any recommendations?

Cheers.

You can go to:

Optica Cosentino
www.opticacosentino.com.ar
Av. Roque Saenz Peña 738 (also known as Diagonal Norte)

or to:
Casa del Fotografo
Viamonte 1334

If you are looking for sports goods, go here:

Esmeralda Str. between Sarmiento Str. and Corrientes Str.
There are two good stores.

Re: Buying Camera & Outdoor Equipment

Compared to prices in the United States, prices in Argentina for anything electronic are anywhere from 2 to 3 times greater. And this includes the exact same electronics direct from Asia.

If the outdoor gear is imported into Argentina, it too will be similiar in costs. Argentina has very high import duties and it appears not many consumer friendly trade agreements for imported goods.

One recent simple example. With a now one year old grandbaby in Bs As, within the last year we have brought baby furniture with us on vacation each time for the grandbaby. My wife bought a namebrand stroller with car seat for U$S100 (roughly $300 pesos.) The stroller alone costs $1500 pesos (roughly U$S500) in Bs As. A big difference!!

Another thing to consider is that Argentina stays 6 months or more behind in the most current electonic trends. I mention this in case your camera is fairly new.

As an example, I noticed this past trip in thumbing through the sales ads for computers that you cannot buy a computer with Microsoft Vista Home Premium. They offer only MS Vista Home Basic and they are rather stripped down as far as the hardware goes.

Do not buy anything in Buenos Aires. Besides the prices, it is very likely to be fake.

Anything made here, such as clothes , will fade, shrink or fall apart.

I know. I live here. I could write a book.

Re: Buying Camera & Outdoor Equipment

by chocolatecat

Oh ... okay, thanks you all. I already found out (online) that prices for camera equipment are rediculously expensive. I bught my stuff here now, for less than half the price.
who would have thought that?!

And I thought I can make a bargain. :(

So you would recommend I rather buy a new jacket at home?

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Barracas de Belgrano

by DPando

This is the opposite part to La Boca or San Telmo or others ...actually Buenos Aires is split in two under my point of view ... North and South ....the southern neighbourhoods are dirtier and poorer meanwhile from microcentro upwards you will find Palermo, Recoleta, Belgrano, Nuñez ... where the richest preople live...or not poor like Boca and surroundings neighbourhoods
This pic is Barracas de Belgrano a superb gardens amidst Cabildo avenue, Libertador Avenue and Monroy ... the quarter is so calmed and harmless, people walk easily ..and at all afraid as you do in other quarters southwards

Che!

by solcitom87

It's really common hear that Argentinians use the word "che" really often...

We only use it in an informal way with friends or people that we don't know to call their attention, it's like the -Hey in english,the Scusa (in italian) and Pardon or excuse moi (in French)

The word "Che" doens't have a translation

Differents ways of using "CHE":

Che, como te llamas? = hey what's your name?
Che, que hora es? = Hey, what time is it?
Che, prestame atencion! = Hey, pay attention to me!
Che Ma! a que hora esta la comida? = Hey mum, At what time is dinner?
Che, me prestas esa lapicera? = hey, could you borrow me that pen?

Hope this is usefull!

A Day with the Gauchos

by JessieLang

Estancia Santa Susana is a 2900-acre working ranch that has been in the same family for 3 generations. One small part of it now hosts visitors. Available activities include wagon rides, horseback riding, and visiting the original owner's home (which is now an interesting museum) and its accompanying chapel.

The huge meal was followed by songs, dancing (including one with boleadores) and a gaucho show on horseback. They began by demonstrating how their horses were trained to follow a bell, and then played the ring game. Evidently it is traditional for the gaucho who successfully spears the ring to give it to a lady in exchange for a kiss on the cheek. The youngest rider (a teenage boy) gave me a ring! Maybe I reminded him of his grandmother...

Santa Susana is just under 50 mi. (78 km) from Buenos Aires

Great place for shopping

by lelyramires about Calle Florida (Florida street)

Calle Florida is a street for pedestrians. You can walk along and find all kinds of shops: women's clothes, men's clothes, shoes, etc.
"El Ateneo" (Florida 340) is an excellent bookstore on Calle Florida.
You can also stop by Galeria Pacifico in Florida 753, which is a fine mall where you can find nice restaurants. In Buenos Aires you should definitely buy leather. It's good and it can be unexpensive, or at least, less expensive than some other places in Latin America. Prices vary a lot.
A leather jacket can vary from US$ 70.oo to US$ 200.oo, for example.

Clubbing in the Provinces

by lkdahl about Sunset

I went to Sunset, located in the suburbs, with several VT-ers. Ever since the nightclub fire in late December where almost 200 people lost there lives, the Buenos Aires clubs have been closed. But outside the Capital Federal, nightclubs are humming with activity.

The cover charge for men is $20 pesos and $15 for women at Sunset. There is a large outdoor mingling area, a dancefloor area for electronic music and a dancefloor that plays latin and other varieties of dance music.

When we entered at around 1:00 am the place was pretty full. As the night or morning wore on the place seemed to get even more packed. Drinks are overpriced like in any nightclub. The crowd was mostly 20-something to 30-something, but it ranged from the late teens to 50-something men. Did not appear there was any dress code enforced.
