    There's only one camera store left in DC, and judging from their website, one has to wonder how long they'll last. However, Dick has always catered to pros by specializing in superlative factory authorized repairs of high end equipment, so maybe the last man standing in this town will stand for quite a while.

    The bad news is that there's not a single word on his website about film. Not a single word.

    new photo store in Chicago?

    A message was posted on on the alt.photo list. It seems the British branch of Calumet is reviving a version of Calumet in the US.

    "CalPhotoUS is a small start up based in Chicago with decades of photo
    experience to supply you with the gear you want and the answers you need.
    We are beginning to stock from the top Vendors and have Nikon at the ready.
    We can ship to any location in the US and are looking to open a store
    location in the Chicagoland area very soon.
    Check us at www.calphotous.com - updates as we continue to grow.
    Thanks for your support!"

    That's terrific news. I do hope they continue to carry certain product lines, like the Brilliant papers and the Bowens lighting gear, that the old Calumet distributed.

    Good news... but is this really the British Calumet re-starting a US operation, or 3 smart guys starting a new business? Either way I'm happy if they have good product and good prices and good service, but it sounds more like the latter to me than the former.

    They are probably linked by the three owners being involved with both companies. In the UK/U a number of companies merged finally coming under the Claumet banner in more recent years. Calumet may well have been more profitable in the UK than the US as they are a much bigger player in the professional market this side of the Atlantic hover they are very heavily biased towards digital and I stopped using them a few years ago as they no longer carried the films and papers I used.
