    I used to buy stuff there when I was in a serious pinch and needed something special for a weekend. Then come back and return it the following week.


    Free rentals ftw...and when they do stuff like charge $500 for a 580 ex... :rofl: they deserve it.

    I work at Ritz also, but work in the lab. Pay is crappy, discounts are crappy, but discount on prints are fairly good. 40% off prints, 7 on cameras, 15 on lenses, 30 on most accessories.

    5d with 24-105 for $2675, gots to save me some moniessss

    if you were to get a 5d, get a better lens than the 24-105

    It comes as a package, but I would prob just sell the 24-105 as I already have a good lens lineup, therefore, 5d body for about $1800

    my friend worked at a local pro shop

    only thing he saved one was prints/film etc

    medium format becomes a LOT cheaper when you are getting 40% off film:hsugh:

    camera bodies and lenses don't have much margin on them, so discounts won't be good, especially at street price. theres mroe margin at kits cause they charge msrp. accessories have shit loads of margin on them though.

    i worked at a frys in the camera/camcorder area, but saved around 70% on audio, 35% on video, 20% on computers but only 5-10% on camera. this was based on cost +10%. Just the way electronics are sold, certain areas just have more margin than others.

    Yeah, I've never bought anything from them in the past, always got stuff online because I'm always poor.

    Not very good. $8/hr here. But, this job is just to pay rent and whatnot while I'm trying to finish school.
