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.

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
