Foursquare Tips

  • Huge selection of consumer and professional cameras and everything photography related. Skip the elevator and take the stairs to check out the displays of rare Rock'n'Roll photos in the stairwell!
  • This place is so busy.
  • Sometimes these guys have soooo much attitude...and sometimes not. It's hit or miss I say, but the products are amazing!
  • Go to Jessie in the 1st Floor. She's Super Awesome.
  • These guys are great...they'll work with you and come up with a better deal!
  • Lots of great stuff but the salesman are assholes - unless you're a hot chick
  • Customer service here is NOTORIOUS for not calling back-- especially the repairs department. Be pro-active about following up.
  • See Patrick to buy cameras he is the most knowledgeable, helpful and has a great sense of humor.
  • Big selection and great for last minute photo needs
  • La mejor tienda para que cualquier fotgrafo que traiga un nio dentro se dievierta...
  • ! ;)
  • This is Los Angeles's answer to New York's B&H. It's a huge and impressive store with wildly knowledgeable employees.
  • The stairs to the 3rd floor make me feel like I'm gonna have a heart attack...every time!
  • Jessie on the first floor is off the chain!
  • Consistently the most unfriendly, condescending and rude camera employees. Patrick B in Olympus dept will be sure to make you feel unwelcome. Don't ask any simple questions.
  • Walking up the stairs is more entertaining than taking the elevator.
  • Always, always disappointing. Nothing beats B&H and this place is just anemic in comparison. Crap hours, underwhelmed staff except for the commodity stuff you can get on Amazon, horrible inventory.
  • These guys are great.
