    Source for camera stuff on-line

    I just bought a Canon digital SLR and now I'm looking for supplies and accessories. Who is a good on-line retailer for lenses and such?

    Don't know about buying stuff, but http://www.dpreview.com is probably the best resource for digital photography information out there.

    In books I've read on photography, bhphotovideo.com is highly recommended. I've never personally purchased anything there though.

    Re: Source for camera stuff on-line

    I've gotten stuff from Amazon and bhphotovideo.com with good results. I've read good reviews about MPEX.com and may get some extra lighting stuff from them soon. I almost hate to say this, but Canon has a couple rebate periods each year as well (on glass and other stuff), but who can wait for that?!?! It's most likely going to be mid-May. I'm actually looking for more accessories today, too.

    =)

    I have used bhphotovideo.com many times mainly for video related equipment. Highly recommended, they always seem to have great prices and quick shipping.

    bhphotovideo is all you'll need.

    Photography on the net (Canon Digital Photography Forums - Powered by vBulletin) has very good info too.

    Welcome to one of the most expensive hobbies there is.
