    Your favourite Photography Gear Supplier/Suppliers??

    Online or locally based..Thought it may be good to hear others opinions..Ive found local supplier prices in most cases far exceed those of online suppliers and then some online suppliers are quite hard to get in touch with via telephone and others take time to reply via email etc etc..
    That being the case , if one has an issue how hard a task to chase up the supplier again to sus theiir problem out.
    Would like to hear comments from experience also if possible..
    So far i havent had any problems from gear purchased online and via online have only purchased from DWI but in the process of trying to purchase from other sites...
    eglobal appears to be the only supplier to come close to DWI buy Plurry hard to get in touch with!!!??? and that being the case i have decided to give them a miss or am i doing something wrong in the priocess??..
    Cheers and keen to hear..

    B&H camera and Video in New York.

    I have bought 80% of my gear from them.

    They are consistently cheaper than the local supliers in South Africa and reliable.

    I think this is the same place Scott Kelby gets his gear from and praises up in his books. Excellent to learn that they reliably ship outside of the US.


    I very much welcome and appreciate your feedback and constructive criticism!

    DWI are brilliant. They are on Ebay now as well. Bought a Canon 50mm 1.4 from them on Ebay last night, cheaper even than their website!

    - Mainline Photographics for Filters, great brick and mortar store in sydney with great service.
    - I have had good experiences with Ryda (sydney) in recent months
    - DD-Photographics has always been a good brick and mortar grey market store in sydney for me.
    - Foto Riesel on Clarence street Sydney, great for secondhand gear

    and as JM Tran already mentioned, Protog is great for accessories and batteries.

    If buying locally, I usually go to Digital Camera Warehouse, and for grey I usually buy from Top Buy or B&H.

    Top Buy are usually cheaper than B&H, and have a huge range of accessories too, but for really specialist stuff, you can't beat B&H.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Far as Grey market Online goes from what ive sussed out so far i dont think one can get cheaper than DWI or eglobal. The one thing that eglobal lacks though is being able to communicate with the public here via phone at least i cant find where to??.
    Had good communication with Fabianfrom NG Systems and was pleased with the advice and info he supplied .Very good knowledge base there ey..
    Still havent purchased my 100-400L yet but will do hopefully in the near future..
    Cheers
