You might not consider their stuff a bargain, but B&H Photo Video (http://www.bhphoto.com)is the largest seller of video and photographic equipment in the country. Their prices are consistantly better than every reputable store I've been too. Can you find better deals going to more shady stores, probably. But if something went wrong and they gave you the run-around, I don't think it would be worth it.

Going to their store is also just an adventure, I'm told. They own an entire street block and its full of all the goodies that us photo-geeks could ever want.

I would think a visit to B&H would be like a trip to the candy store!

B&H is definately a must experience, however there are a couple of others you might want to visit. Adorama, 17thStreet Photo, and although they aren't as strong in photography you might want to check out J&R Music World for the shopping experience.

Default BEWARE !

If you buy a camera, make sure it comes with a 12 month USA manufacturers warrantee. Find the card in the box. Some stores sell refurbished cameras as new. You only find out if you need a repair after the refurbished 90 day warantee is expired.

This happened to me at "Cameras for Less" in Brooklyn. I don't think they are unique. Also use a credit card. If you find that you have been cheated within 60 days of sale, it may be possible to do a "chargeback".

Otherwise - have fun and take pictures. They are great cities to explore and photograph!
