Shop in Orlando or nearby
« on: December 28, 2013, 09:37:40 AM »
I`m sorry if this is not the right sub forum but couldn`t find any "general". If wrong, please move.

I`m leaving Sweden for a holiday to Orlando and was wondering if you guys/girls have any idea to photo stores that are good to buy from.
Or if it is easier to buy from B&H and have the gear sent to the hotel?

Thanks for your reply.

Colonial Photo & Hobby is the only camera shop in Central Florida worth a look. They are really nice and carry a good range of stock but can't match B&H prices due to sales tax, having said that B&H didn't use to ship to hotels.

There is another store Southern Photo near Melbourne, but they concentrate on Nikon gear, they are a Nikon Pro agent and have very little Canon gear and their prices are high.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Thanks for the info.
It was a good shop. But since B&H did send to hotel, I decided to by from them since I have bought from them before.

Glad it was a help, interesting about B&H shipping to hotels now too. Hope you had fun in Central Florida.

I enjoyed shopping in Colonial. I agree they're the best game in town

I may help, that I have bought from them before for a good amount of money.
