Hollywood Camera StoreThis is an incredible little shop, made up only of photo processing, and gorgeous old used cameras. You have your choice here of Super 8s, Brownies, etc... basically, any non-toy camera, and even some of them, are here. They also have some bins of camera parts that could be useful if you're putting together your own pinhole. Mostly I was in awe of all of this photographic equipment that I have no idea what to do with.

The older guy working seemed happy to have someone come in, and he kept peppering me with questions: could he help me, was there something I was looking for, what was the weather like? I finally fessed up that I was a n00b, but that I found the aesthetics of the older cameras much better than their newer, digital cousins.

You should give them a call, Whitney. I think I remember seeing some, but I could be mistaken.
