A solid chain for relatively serious photographers with an exceptional rental program.. The Scene For serious amateurs or professionals, Alkit is a solid all-around chain for photography equipment and developing. Sure, one photo shop looks just like another, but the service and quality at Alkit are consistently excellent.
The Goods The chain's wide-ranging stock ranges from the latest in digital Sony and Canon cameras to the finest of the medium-format Hasselbads and the best grips and lights. In addition, the chain offers a formidable range of used photography equipment, from advanced lighting rigs to beginner's Pentax 35mm's. But what really distinguishes Alkit from its competitors is its flaship Park Avenue "Pro" store and its stellar, reasonably-priced rental program. Offering perhaps the city's best range of well-maintained rental equipment, Alkit's capable staff regularly matches photographers with the technology they need.
