Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Yodobashi Camera

I have mentioned Yodobashi Camera before in these notes, but it is always a treat to spend a few hours (!) walking through the largest camera store in have ever seen. Yes bigger than B&H in NYC!

Hundreds of camera bags. Kind of like shoe shopping for guys (ha!).

And row after row of paper for photo prints. I stick with Epson paper although Fuji has super color.

Kodak! Remember when they were the undisputed leader in photography?

I just love that there are always a lot of printing kiosks where you can insert you SD card and print on the spot. I think it says something about the Japanese style where they love real books, film, prints, etc.

My friendly Yodobashi sales clerk. In general they can check you out faster than you put your credit card in your wallet.

Pro tip: I like seeing all the technology camera platforms and love that I can feel and touch them. Yodobashi is also great for specialized accessories, including Art and Artisan camera straps (made in Japan). Have a shopping list in mind before you go!
