Might help if you were a bit more specific. Are they coming from LA as in Los Angeles, California or are they coming from LA as in the state of Louisiana.

I don't know about cheap places but there are many shops around L.A. A couple big ones are Samy's on Fairfax and Bel Air Camera in Westwood, and perhaps MPCin Hollywood. A quick google search turned up this list.

Is it really cheaper here?

There's also Canoga Camera in the valley. Depending on how soon they are leaving they may also be able to purchase online from a US company and have it delivered before they leave. Might be able to save a few more dollars that way. One thing I would be concerned about if you're thinking of purchasing a body is that it would be a North American body and not European so you might have to send it back here for any warranty work it may need.

I've bought most of my camera stuff from Samy's, so I second them. Their online prices are very comparable to B+H, but they do tend to markup a little bit in the store for their excellent customer service. If your friends can, have them print out what you want from the site so the salespeople know not to jack up the price too much. There's one salesman at one of the stores that I try to avoid because he marks up way too much in my opinion. Most of them are very nice though.

Thank you so very much :D

I am not wanting a body, only 2 batterypacks and one cf card, I wont be thinking of nother body till i have mastered this one and I will send them links and texts they could print out.

Since i will be "the tours official photographer and nr1 grouppie" I thought it would be better if i had plenty of space and energy for piccis of my faboulus friends. Oh I just cant whait for gay pride to begine:D
