    Hi all,
    I'm going to New York soon for a sight-seeing holiday and taking my Canon
    10D with me. I imagine it'll be cheaper to buy extra memory cards there
    rather than here in the UK. Any recommendations for shops where I can just
    drop in? Not necessarily after the absolute cheapest price - convenience is
    probably top priority - my friend won't want to be dragged off miles just to
    visit one shop!

    I suggest at least check . I rarely buy
    things like this in brick-and-mortar retail stores. Online savings are often
    quite significant.

    If B&H is closed, (they also close around 1PM on Fridays) I'd go down
    to J&R Music World ( They have a big selection
    and fair prices. Bring a printout of the price from J&R and they will
    give you a good price.

    J&R has a very good reputation. If the salesman says they don't have
    something in stock and suggests a different brand I'd tend to believe
    him and not suspect a bait and switch.

    The only downside is that they don't give refunds, it's store-credit
    only. Buy it and use it immediatly. After that you need to depend on
    the manufacturers warranty, anyway.
