    I'm going to London in April and I wonder if anyone knew some good photographic shops in the area, just in case I run out of film or so.

    Plenty in London, but pay a visit to Silverprint, they are APUG advertisers, great shop, all you need.

    Equipment as well - Teamwork, Aperture, Calumet.

    Make surew you visit the Photographers Gallery as well, great exhibitions and excellent bookshop.

    After looking at their website I must say they have a wide assortment, I hope they have those Meopta 6x6 and 6x4.5 masks in stock, I'm certainly want those if they fit the Opemus 4. And they carry Fomapan too, this get better by the minute. I will drop by for sure.

    And what about classic camera's and 2de hand shops??

    But don't go too early as they open at mid day (well, they did when I went).

    OK, since it's close to British Museum I will check it out.

    I'd call them in advance. Both times I've ordered Meopta parts, they've been able to get them in with a couple of days notice, but I don't know how much they keep in stock.

    I want to do so much in such a short time (will only be there for about 3 days) that I will have no time to actually do much socializing. I will run around like crazy I'm afraid. So if you read something like "Madman with strange red coloured camera arrested in London" in the newspapers you will know that it is me they arrested :smile:.
