Camera store recommendations: Seattle and Portland

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Mattes, Sep 3, 2008.

  1. Hello there.

    A good friend of mine travels through Washington State and Oregon. He needs some lenses, of which he haven't thought before his departure. Nothing really unusual, but a AF-D 50/1.8 and the 10.5/2.8 are on his list.

    Could you recommend a good camera store in Seattle/WA or Portland/OR ?

    I know this seems a bit unusual, but I really value your opinions.

    Regards,

    Mattes

    My suggestion would be Pro Photo in Portland.

    Pro Photo Supply
    1112 NW 19th Ave.
    Portland Or. 97209

    Glazers, Camera West, Optik in Seattle, but the sales tax is about 8.8 percent; No sales tax in Oregon, so check out Camera World, Shutterbug and Pro Photo Supply, as Paul suggested.

    Pro Photo.....one of the last "real camera" stores....
     
  6. For Seattle, the two stores I'd recommend highly:

    Glazer's Camera, outside of downtown Seattle. Huge variety of stuff, caters to amateurs and professionals. They are very knowledgeable. They have a very extensive rental department. You can get anything from lenses to computers with software to Chimera lighting.

    Kenmore Camera outside of Seattle. Also very well-stocked.
     
  7. Thanks a lot, you really are a great help (again) !

  8. I agree for Seattle, Glazer's in town and Kenmore Camera North of town. Both are very good. If gear is shipped out of state you could avoid our sales tax as well. Optechs is more for digital backed cameras and such I don't think they carry DSLR's anymore.
