p.1 #1 · In a gambling mood...


I will be in Las Vegas in a few hours. Aside from the obvious diversions what camera shops might be worth checking out? Thanks!

Casey's Camera or Sahara Camera I guess? If you're expecting some awesome big-city camera shop with tons of inventory, in the line of B&H, you'll be disappointed.

Keep in mind that outside of the casinos, Vegas is more suburb than metropolis. Other than the touristy attractions on the strip and the above-average amount of good ethnic restaurants there's really not a lot to see.

These two look very decent. bandccamera even rents 5D3's and 70-200L 2.8IS II's among others including the 85L II AND 8-15mm!

Wow, B&C must have significantly upgraded their business since I've last been there! I used to buy film and developing supplies there, the saleswoman was always very nice and would always refer to tax as "the government" when ringing you up. Kind of a mom & pop sort of place, but the emphasis at the time was mostly film rather than a lot of digital bodies/lenses. It's been years since I've been there, maybe I'll have to drop by when I finally come home again.

That's probably a very good idea.

Thanks guys! This was a short work trip that will only take us through Vegas to return a rental car so I've only got a few hours. And yeah, I kinda had pawnshops on the brain but that might be a bigger bet than any I'll make in a casino!

I visited Las Vegas for the first time in my life (believe it or not!) on my way to/from Zion earlier this year. We stopped there for the cheap accommodations. At the time I shared an email with my brother about the place and he offered this advice: " When you get to Vegas, the first thing you should do is rent a car and leave Las Vegas." ;-)
