I like to go to Campus Camera in Kent because their sales staff know about cameras. Even if you don't buy one this place will give you a knowledge base second to non. I have purchased my first Digital camera and it has been all I could ask for.
I am not sure how much money I saved going there because I knew what I wanted and they were the only place around that had it.
If you are looking for the best in photographic material and you live near Kent State University stop by and see a great little store tucked away in Kent.
On did I say they had a great processing department as well.
