    Jim, if you are in London next weekend, you can just make the retrospective of British photography on at Tate Britain (http://www.tate.org.uk/britain/exhibitions/howweare/) which closes on Sunday 2nd Sept (7.50 GBP per person for the photo show, but The Tate itself is free).

    Have fun, Bob.

    As we popped into the British Museum this evening I had a looksy, Aperture is the only place I could find still in that area of Bloomsbury but it's a lovely find, whole range of equipment all the way up from a Brownie Model F to Nikon F5s and Leicas.

    Snap! I was in the BM earlier today too after visiting the Tate. You may have seen a sweating, overweight individual snapping away with an F3 and a prehistoric Ensign Ful-Vue...

    I could find only Aperture there too. Sadly, the other shops that were once there have departed and there's far fewer old bookshops left too.

    (Tip: the small gift shop in Museum Street has sensibly priced bottles of fruit juice - always worth knowing if you are in London's Tourist Land where prices can get very silly )...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Not much left in Central London. The Classic Camera (Leica) are still by the British Museum too (Pied Bull Yard) where there used to be a couple of other places too. Jacobs on New Oxford Street has lots of second hand MF, but Aperture has the most variety there. One of the other places that was near there has recently moved to Sicilian Avenue but havent been yet.

    Nicholas near Mornington Crescent has a lot of stuff, but most of it isnt in the shop.

    For Velvia 50, Calumet or Silverprint in London.

    Enjoy your visit.
    Certainly a fine place to go for a cup of tea/coffee and light snacks, and any amount of good old/new film cameras. Strangely though, don't expect to be able to buy film to go in any of these cameras, although they do still have some Agfa colour film which may or may not be outdated. Ah well, I suppose you just can't have it all.

    Should be able to get Velvia in Calumet and they still have a store in Glasgow, although the Aberdeen one has closed.
