B&H Photo
Midtown West
B&H isn't just a photo and vieo store. It is the place where professional photographers from around the world get their equipment. The flagship is huge and busy, necessitating that goods be transported from the stockroom via an overhead conveyor belt. Whether you’re a professional or a keen amateur, B&H is the ultimate one-stop shop for all your photographic, video and audio needs. Note that due to the largely Orthodox Jewish staff, it’s closed on Saturdays.

This is the place to go for photogs and camera buffs.  I have a friend who comes here directly from the airport every time he visits NYC.  It's beyond amazing.  It's also the international go-to for photo journalists in every part of the world.  They will ship anywhere on Earth and cover all warranties without national boundaries.  But for you, you're just looking for a place to buy a camera, right?  Step into this mega-store and note the conveyor belts above your head.  The wander around `and maybe talk to an expert and notice how they don't want to upwell you or push you into a specific name brand.  Instead, shock, they ask you what you need and how you'll be using it, and they may even surprise you by telling you to buy a cheaper non-brand item that you never would have thought to look at.  If so, TRUST THEM, because that is probably an equal, if not better, item than the expensive branded one you had your heart set on.  These people are honest, expert, and have the most lenient return policy ever.  Oh, and did I mention they are also the cheapest?!?! It's no wonder pros around the world turn to them.
