    Think film is dead? Come here. You'll find what you're looking for. They're still in business even though most of the companies that supply them aren't. How do they do it? Magic! The magic of film.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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