    There's a Calument pro shop in Berlin.

    Highlights: pop up to the top of the Berlin TV tower, that wonder of real existing socialist architecture with a decent view, albeit behind glass. There's a hotel right next door, basically, that has a viewing platform without being behind glass. There is, as well, the old radio antenna broadcasting platform that's more on the outskirts and gives you, in my opinion, a better panorama of the city.

    Sony Center for architecture, not far from the Holocaust Memorial, Brandenburg Gate, etc. Kreuzburg for street photography.

    It's a great place to wander around and absorb local color.

    I don't know any photo stores, but there's a pretty cool local street photography gallery right off of Kottbusser Tor. Forgot the name of it though. It's close to all the Turkish diners, so it's pretty hard to miss. Some crazy Canadian canibal was arrested a block from there too a while back.

    As for sightseeing and photos, I've always liked strolling around Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain for some street photos. I don't know Berlin like my own backyard, but I feel like there are plenty of photo opportunities from Frankfurter Allee on towards the East Gallery. Don't know what it is, but I just like the vibe around there. At night you'll catch some cool bands playing and people dancing near the Bahnhofs and what not.
