Try Ritz, at least for touching/feeling cameras. Not that I would buy it there ..
The selection at Ritz is the worst I have ever seen...no current models whatsoever...
OOPS - sorry about that. I was only suggesting it as another possible option. Like I said, not that I would buy there (ever!)...

I can't answer for CT, but in Syracuse, NY there is one "real" camera store (MQ Camera) with owners that actually know about the products they sell & are willing to spend time determining your needs & matching them to a camera, point & shoot or DSLR. What's more, their prices match those of the big box stores. Probably not worth the trip to Syracuse from CT, but if you do a search for a reasonably large city & a name brand dealer such as Canon or Nikon, you will probably find one. The good ones still seem to exist.http://www.lakeshoreimages.com.

I believe there is a nice camera store in Milford (Milford Camera! I think). I live in Southbury Ct, not too far from you and I really miss Mike's Camera Shop in Watertown. I used them for my film 35mm and could sure use their help with my digital needs now. good luck!..

Seems you hold a grudge against them for some reason..
They do have good stores.you just have to find them..

So, here's my question: do true Camera Stores still exist today? Ilive in the Danbury, CT are and I cannot find one. I know I couldtravel into NYC to B&H, but that is a trek I would rather ignore..
Ahh, c'mon. Might be fun. .
Any suggestions from anyone here local to the CT area?.
I see ads for Camera Wholesalers (Stamford) in the NYTimes periodically.http://www.camerawholesalers.com/.
I've never been there and you now know _all_ I know about them..

Thanks, Henry. I have visited almost all the suggestions made here. I think I am just going to take an afternoon and travel into NYC to visit B&H. They would seem to have the combination of experience/advice and supply choice I am looking for..
