    Talking [HELP] Photography shops in Miami area?

    Hey everyone, how is it going?

    I sold my canon rebel camera and am likely going to by a Canon D20 - in costa rica things are over priced and to order and ship it down would cost a nice chunk in customs and duty.

    Does anyone know any reputible, and well stocked / supplied Camera stores in the Miami area?

    it would only cost me about $200 to fly up for the day, maybe stay over night so another $50-$70 for a nice hotel, so i figure i can make a weekend of it...

    If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be great, would be even better if the places had an online presense aswell


    P.S - is the $600 more price tag on the D20 worth it over the XT ?

    Hope this helps, but maybe a person who lives there could narrow the field down for ya.

    Pittman Photo on S. Dixie Highway. You can reach them at 305-256-3558. We buy quite a lot of gear from them for the high school that I work at.

    Good Luck.

    No but you can private mesage me and I will return my cell phone number to you. Give me a call when you are in the area. I am currently in South Carolina for the next week with my son. He is participating in a golf camp at the U and we are both checking it out for a possible place for him to go once he is out of high school.
