Hello, anyone can tell me where can I get GH1 in Hong Kong? I can't find it!

I picked one up a few days ago, but they only seemed to have a couple in stock. I was told by QTI on this board to check out Stanley St and Mongkok. These are the best places to try and give you the best chance of getting one...

They weren't offering great discounts because I think they realise it's going to sell well.

If you know HK, then you will know that these 2 areas have the best concentration of photo/electronic shops.

Good Luck!

What Stanley St is meant? The street in Lan Kwai fong? Near Central station?

Don't bother. Went there yesterday and also to a whole bunch of other camera shops in Stanley St. They don't have it in stock. Went to a couple of broadways and fortess as well. No luck either. They said you can order, but it will probably take about a month. Doesn't look very promising...

Ok, I hope I don't get banned for spamming, but Singapore has shops with ready stock when I checked last week, and I can help hook you up with a shop if you're interested in a PAL GH1 without the 30 minute limit. The demand for the camera is low here, as everyone is buying Canon 500Ds. The warranty on my GH1 is INTERNATIONAL, so there should be no warranty issues. Price including shipping should be around US$1650-US1700 depending on where you live.

Just trying to help people get their hands on the camera. If there is an issue with this post I'll be happy to take it down.

Oh yeah!

Got a GH1 today! :) Was the last one they had. Prize was 12000HKD (1550$).The shop was DC Power Camera Co. in Mongkok.

I guess the only way to still find one is to visit one shop after another. I've been to all shops in Stanley Street near Central and to quite a few on Mongkok. You might try Tsim Sha Tsui, there are a few more shops that were on my list.

No, it was the one and only I could find and it is black.

No luck finding one in Tsim Sha Tsui either. I go back to the states in a few days where I think they go for $1500 w/lens if you can find one. Doesn't seem to be significantly less expensive here and not available either.
