I stopped by the Mall Plaza Trébol while touring Concepcion and Talcahuano, Chile. As I was walking through, I noticed a Nikon store. While there were many electronics stores in the mall, this was a completely Nikon-branded store.
One thing that stuck out is the price of cameras in Chile. For example, a Nikon D90 costs 999,000 Chilean Pesos, which is roughly equivalent to $2100 USD. The D90 is under $1000 with a kit lens in the US. These prices were consistent across the board for all camera models. That is, most cameras were roughly twice the price of the USD equivalent price.
Most of the products I’ve seen in Chile have been fairly equivalent to the USD values; however, electronics and gasoline have been consistently higher.
