    The UK chain of camera stores Jessops, which any UK reader will be familiar with, has gone into administration today.

    'A statement issued by PwC said that Jessops had suffered as British shoppers remain cautious ... while the chain's core camera market was in decline.'

    I feel for the staff, they were always very friendly in my local branch.
    I wonder what will happen to the stock?

    Although they were not present in my country of The Netherlands I always paid a visit to the New Oxford Street branch during my many visits to London... I am as guilty as anyone for buying most of my equipment online these days, but still it is sad to see the psychical shops disappear like they do in the last years....

    The good stuff will go back to the manufacturers. Best bet for bargains will be accessories, bags, cases etc.
