Default reputable store in New York (Manhattan Area)?

I am travelling to NY in October and would like any recommendations as to where i can find some reputable digital camera stores. Do u think i will be able to find prices as cheap as on-line retailers? Or can someone recommend an on-line retailer for me, so that i can order it while i'm in the states?

thanks for help!

One of the best repute stores in the NY area is B&H Photo Video, there are other stores of high repute as well. The link to the store is as below;


The cheap prices that you are getting from some online retailers could not be matched be B&H as these guys don't believe in pressure selling, bait & switch or other tactics of that kind, but pure business and total customer satisfaction.

Whichever store you intend to buy from, don't forget to go thru the pages of
to know more about the store.
hope this helps

I was in NYC in August and agree that B&H is the place to go. Also, check out J&R across from Ground Zero. http://www.jandr.com/default.htm

I'm second to Bob, B& H and J&R probably the best dealer in NY. Most of ther stores treat you like crab. Here is the true story: came to a NY mail order store, aked the saleman: can I see that digicam? he said: which one? oh the one that you displayed in the front window...oh sure ...if you want to see it, go out to the front and see it, when you're ready to buy, come back here and I will sell you one...now you get the picture...
