    I searched but couldn't find anything on what I was looking for. What's the general "markup" on camera equipment? There is a part time opening at a local camera shop and my new schedule will allow me to take the job and use all of the money to buy things at the shop. ;) Is it worth it? I used to work for Best Buy when I was in college and the dicount was 5% above cost. Any insight would be great.

    I work at a camera shop and the markup on camera's is 20%. I don't know if this is standard, but the prices are the same as the other chain stores in the country.

    Other than that, I can't tell ya because there is such a variety in products and each one is different. For example, memory cards are, I believe, 50%.

    If you need a job regardless then definitely go for it, because you'll at least be able to work with stuff you love.

    Na, I'm an electrical engineer by trade, I was just going to do it a couple of days a week to get a discount on the stuff that I spend the most money on. I was hoping to hear that there is a 50% markup on lens' and cameras. Oh well. I may still do it anyway.
