    Most people buy camera equipment here. I recently found out you can rent the latest gear to test it out. Just go to the 6th floor.

    The guys here are way nicer than B&H photo, they're super helpful even if they don't have a particular item. Prices are kind of hard to beat and the store is not too difficult to get to.

    The ticketing system is a little absurd but efficient in its own way. If you need film, they have a great selection; just know what you're going to get before you queue up.

    Don't waste time: get a service ticket when you walk in from a salesperson near the lil touch screen thing.

    HORRID customer service- incompetent/misinformed employees & management. All of whom do not know their own policies & do nothing to help. Be prepared to fight if something goes wrong w. your purchase.

    I recently purchased a new Asus Laptop from Adorama. The unit arrived in a defective state and would not work. Adorama will not exchange the unit. I discourage anyone from using Adorama for computers.

    Go to BH, Calumet or Fotocare before I ever come here again. Customer service can't help you in store unless you speak to the shipping dep before hand about an order that had shipped & want to return

    If a sales person offers you a discount or free item during your bargaining, make sure they actually take it off at the register. They're extremely shady this way.

    Once you have done business with the Adorama, you learn quickly that they are reliable & trustworthy. They put the customer first. Adorama should be on your to do list when in New York.

    If you're picking up rental equipment and have a vehicle with you, call Adorama and ask for curbside pickup/drop-off to avoid parking tickets. They'll bring equipment downstairs & load your vehicle.
