    The only proper UK camera shop I know of is Jessops. Does anyone know of any other UK shops where you can buy online?

    The best thing to do is to buy a photography magazine like practical photography, amateur phographer etc cos like half of them is adverts from photography shops and you get a good read aswell.

    I buy most general stuff from ebay but i'm poor and get most of it second hand. I get darkroom chemicals from jessops as thats the only place i can find that sells chemicals.

    "The only proper UK camera shop I know of is Jessops."

    Well, that's debatable - is it "proper"?

    They've started to sell cheap silver plastic coloured junk there along with more computer bits than photographic gear.

    www.7dayshop.com (cheap consumables without VAT)

    http://www.rcomputers.co.uk/mxv/home.html (cheap secondhand gear)

    http://www.discountfilmsdirect.co.uk// (reasonable film prices)
