    I am in Orlando and purchase from Colonial Photo and Hobby (call first) or Freestyle. Colonial is useful in hot summer months; Freestyle in cooler months.

    in tampa

    i live in pinellas county - sadly, there is little in the tampa bay area... north tampa photo on the tampa side. they mostly have what the schools require so not a diverse range of products and offerings, but the best in the area.

    and north lake photo on the pinellas side of the bay.

    check out the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, fmopa.org - good place to meet other like-minded folks. pm me if you want more info.

    Checked em' out the other day, nice guys, selection in pretty weak in the film department. Though they did say they'd do the best they could if I needed. Fairly decent consignment section there though.

    I was in Tampa area 3 weeks ago and stopped by the Photography Museum (cited above), but it was closed on a Saturday morning. Their schedule on website shows as being open on weekends. Any info?
