    Adding one more location to your itinary 上海市梅园路360号环龙摄影器材城

    So far only been to 星光摄影器材城. There are 5 floors selling all sorts of camera equipments both new and used. Some used items are a good buy there. Accessories are definately cheaper there like Benro tripod and especially those made in China. Can spend hours there like a child in a candy store.

    Check out this location 环龙摄影器材城 for me if possible to compare which is a better location for shopping for used equipment. Below is the photo for the location.

    Happy shopping!
