Best place to buy pro canon gear in Scotland
« on: October 07, 2011, 09:32:49 PM »
Hi everyone,

After 10 years in Japan I'm moving back to Scotland. I'm used to being able to go into any camera shop here and basically having every single canon product in store, even a great second hand market here. I know I won't have that any more but does anyone have any advice on where has a good range of pro gear? A shop or online would be great. Maybe I'll have to start my own canon shop....

Thanks.

For hands on experience I would recommend Calumet. They will let you try rental stock on your own body.
Might not be cheapest but they provide a good service.

Warehouse Express (or WEX as they're now calling themselves) are definitely good for new, good customer service in my experience, they even contacted me after I got my 7D, to make sure I was happy. For used stuff have a look at MPB Photographics, detailed and accurate descriptions on condition and good prices.
