    Great old-fashioned camera store, with lots of new and used products and very knowledgeable staff. Fun to visit, just to see the store, but good for photographic equipment and advice.

    Best selection of used equipment in this city or most others. Has more used items than all the rest combined. The extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff make it easy to find what you need....or don

    One of the oldest photo shops I ever been in. Lots of very knowledgeable staff. Prices tend to be "retail" prices but if you're looking for something vintage, they definitely likely to have it.

    Huge selection of camera products, but they have a bad habit of misquoting on repairs or film development services. Like really bad.

    Make sure to look in all the little boxes on the counter. There's always good sale stuff in most of them.

    Always out of stock when school comes around. They never over stock their shelves to help with demand.
