    Hello guys, next saturday I'll go to Rotterdam and The Hague and I'll stay for a few days, does anyone know where to buy 120 film there?

    I'd also like to visit some flea markets/shops where I could find some good used cameras and accessories.

    Thank you all!

    Dear F994,

    I hope you will enjoy your visit.
    Where can you get 120 film?
    Rotterdam: Calumetphoto, Gordelweg 155-156, 3038 GE Rotterdam
    The Hague: Foto Hafo, Wagenstraat 67, 2512 AR Den Haag (it's in the centre of the town)
    (there are more places to get film in these towns, but these come to my mind first)

    An nice shop to visit is the city of Delft (between Rotterdam and The Hague and Delft is surely worth a visit on it's own).
    The name of the shop is Fotohandel Delfshaven. The address: Vrouwjuttenland 28, 2611LC, Delft
    Their webpage http://www.mkoptics.net

    Greetings from The Netherlands,

    Thank you so much Joop, that's what I was looking for!

    For sure i'll visit the shop in the centre of Den Haag, I'll consider the others. Unfortunately I won't stay long and I won't be able to visit Delft since I should also spend a day in Amsterdam to visit a friend.

    Thanks again,

    Francesco

    If your friend in Amsterdam is into photography too, you should consider a visit to the Stedelijk Museum. There's an excellent exhibition on the photography of Ed van der Elsken, a well known dutch street photographer/photojournalist (link).

    When in Rotterdam visit Nederlands Fotomuseum (= Dutch Photo Museum). It's not very big, but they have a very nice gallery with Henri Cartier-Bresson. There are also other temporary expositions. I saw a beautiful series of large prints of panoramas made in all the parliaments in the EU about 3 weeks ago.
    They also have a very nice photo book store.

    Thanks everyone for the advices! It was a fantastic trip and I also met in Amsterdam a cool guy with a pinhole who left me his card, you should take a look on his website, he mostly shoots with pinholes camera. HERE

    I decided to follow your advice, I've been in Delft and it was the best place I've visited, even better than Rotterdam and Den Haag. The shop was closed but really, Delft is definitely worth a visit.
    Also visited Hafo, and other ones I saw in chinatown and the rest of the city, cool used gear but the prices were crazy high.
