Lately we have seen camera stores closing with only a few reopening. Photographers are losing a huge resource with this. I know things on the internet can be cheaper, but that does not make it better. After a year of insanity while searching for something I wanted I was forced to use a local camera store more. I realized that even though it may have been more expensive, it was ultimately convenient and worth it. Here are some reason I think photographers should reconsider using camera shops more often.
