Default Digicam stores in Canada?

Hey all,

I'm currently a day into a 21day trip through Canada, going from Vancouver over to the east and then back again. Just in case I need some equipment, can anyone recommend to me a decent camera shop or chain of stores?

All the stores are different here, and basically I just need a name to look up so I can see where to go..

Of course, if anyone knows of any decent stores in Vancouver and wants to let me know......

Ta,

Henrys, http://www.henrys.ca (A chain of stores in a few cities in Ontario, main store located on Queen St. E. in Toronto)
Vistek, http://www.vistek.ca (also located on Queen St. E. in Toronto)

If you get to Toronto, there's quite a camera stores, many near Henrys (also check out the pawn shops there which sell camera stuff), but there's also a few camera stores along Yonge St. north of Dundas.

If you want a heads up on the public transit system in Toronto, check out http://www.toronto.ca/ttc/

Compared to what? I've found some other stores more expensinve. Actually I got my filter adapter tube at Vistek who had the best price in town. And I've bought quite a few items at Henrys' used department.

Anyway, the poster asked for "decent"...didn't mention anything about cheap.

Anyway, Henrys and Vistek are the two biggest camera stores in the city, and they have a lot of experts.

Opps. I automatically thought of price, . Got me there.

I must admit they have great staff. I too like Henry's used/auction business. Its great for accessories. They also have great sales now and then, but in general I dont find them cheap.

Damnit - I'm looking for a lens adapter ring for Kodak dx6340 and cant seem to find one at all in Vancouver. Are there any websites where I can view prices for retail goods as sold in stores, not just online?
