Whenever possible, I've gone to Central Camera for purchases and advice since the late 1970's when I was a student. Unlike the chains such as Ritz/Wolf, they employ people who love photography and know a lot about it. And if you are ever lucky enough to experience shopping in their little store it is a throwback to the camera stores that used to surround the loop area and that catered to the pros and amateurs alike! But if you must get a camera via phone order but still live in Chicago, they will deliver it to your door -- FREE! Their on-line service is great too. I purchased a scanner from them a couple of years ago that way.

I have been buying most of my camera gear from Central Camera since 1996. Great customer service, including their repair department. Most everything has come from their online store ( www.CentralCamera.com ).

This shop has been in business for many, many years, and their knowledgable staff knows the answers to all your photographic questions. Here you will find any film speed by any manufacturer you can think of, as well as cameras, bags, books, lenses, etc. This is a tiny storefront, and you will probably have to wait for help because it is always busy, but you will surely find that obscure piece of photographic equipment you have been looking everywhere else for.

PROS: years of knowledge and service in all things photographic
CONS: tiny shop gets busy
