Wolf camera locations closing

Didn't see any post about this, but wanted to give a heads up that they are closing up the Wolf Camera stores around here. Stopped in to look at a lens for my Nikon they were all sold out for what I was looking for in Vernon Hills. Might hit up some other locations Friday.

From what I saw
Cameras & Lens 10-15% off
Gearbags 40% off
Memory cards 30%
Tripods 30%

I wouldn't buy anything from there considering they might go out of business. How would you return things?

You don't. You buy things that you've researched and looked at, and made sure it's what you want.

I've never returned anything camera related.


That said, their closing sale prices are probably only slightly better than Amazon.

Any word why there closing up?
I bought some stuff from them. Never had an issue. But some of my gear I got a extra warranty on if I fuck it up. It ends next month so no big issue.

They've been in bankruptcy for a while if I recall. I'm sure online sales, their lack of product on the shelves, and lackluster customer support all contributed to that.

Nice pick up. Great lens from what I read. About the same as amazon pricing. But still finger banging it locally gives you peace of mine you got a good lens.

Well they have been hit HARD by the Nikon users. Still tons of shit left except Nikon. They got a d90 kit. No Nikon lens.

I did how ever find something I needed.

The new nikon 910 speed light. 467.00. I saved a hundo and it in my hand. I saved a few bucks and got something new to play with. Well make that a few things to play with since I picked up that vintage 35mm.

Thanks for posting this.

I'm still playing with and enjoying my new 8mm Fisheye. Its made in Korea cheap stuff, but all the reviews are raving about it.

LOL, post corrections.



Honestly, I'm too busy/lazy to figure out photoshop and the like. I pulled this from the camera using the same card reader I recommended to you, then uploaded it to facebook. That's the extent of my processing. It could be sharper, but I had a shutter speed of like 1/40th, and I was crawling along the floor to get down to her level.

The 8mm Fisheye is a hellafun lens. I just hope I don't get bored of it too quickly.
