Places to buy equipment other than B&H/Adorama?

I'm a little irradiated at not being able to purchase from b&h and adorama during certain times of the year. Amazon is also out of the question due to recent sales tax law here in California. Is there anywhere outside of California that is a good reputable business for purchasing Cameras & Accessories?

Thanks,

Thanks Helen, looks like Adorama might be a better option since you are willing to expedite shipping.
I'm simply tired of going to B&H's website and having a giant banner come up that says "CLOSED" for various holidays & sundays. One such holiday happens to be going on right now.

I guess I'm just the opposite, as I appreciate a business where making a buck isn't their top priority.

but I thought that even when these shops are closed you can still place an order.

Re: Places to buy equipment other than B&H/Adorama?

The B&H online ordering closure periods are usually shorter than for the storefront, but in any case all are posted in advance.

We have a list of handpicked sponsors (see link at top of page). Some of the commentary in this thread (in some cases already deleted) about religious principles is a bit superfluous to DV Info Net, so at least for now I'm going to close the thread.
