Default Re: your favorite store for bargains

My favorite store for photography equipment is Royal Caribbean in
Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas. I purchased cameras there on two separate cruises. They have good prices on Canon cameras, but they were higher priced on professional grade lenses for these cameras. The Kodak digital camera I bought was at least $100 cheaper at RC than NY City mail order companies.

I checked camera prices on St. Martin as well, but they weren't as good as Royal Caribbean. Royal Caribbean has a shop in downtown Charlotte Amalia as well as at Havensight Mall. They carry other electronic devices, but I did no price shopping for them. Come propared with a list of the state-side prices and compare them at the store. They will do some discounting if you have other store prices in hand and horse trade a bit. This store is friendlier than Boulchards on St. Thomas. Boulchards tries to play games with the price and confuse you. Stay away from them!
