Does anyone have any recommendations for a good camera shop in London
(.uk)? I am looking for a BG-E2 grip for my 20d, but given that Canon have
acknowledged there is a problem with them, I need to try some out. My local
retailer (Jessops) only carries one in stock and unfortunately it has the
"power down the camera with a heavy lens" problem...

Can anyone recommend a shop where they wouldn't mind my trying several
until I get a good one?

Thanks in advance -

York Cameras, 18 Bury Place, London WC1A 2JL; 020 7242 7182. They
specialise in Canon, and are quite helpful and knowledgeable. Don't know
if they would have several in stock, of course, nor can I say whether
they would happily open them all, but if it's a known problem they
should.

They are very conveniently located just round the corner from the
British Museum, which has to be about the best museum in the world for
the photographer....

Good luck,

David

I have used www.cameraworld.co.uk a few times without problem. On
Wells street which is just off Oxford Street between Oxford Circus and
Tottenham Ct Road. Past Tottenham Court Road there is a Jessops and a
Jacobs as well as London Cameras/Microglobe is you know where to look.
