Calumet, a global photography supplier with locations in Germany, the United Kingdom, and on both coasts of America, caters primarily to professionals in search of commercial equipment. While there are some point-and-shoot and digital SLR cameras available in glass cases at this location near Madison Square Park, the focus is on accessories like tripods, lights, backdrops, reflectors, lenses, and filters, as well as photo paper, inkjet printers, inks, and monitors. Film and supplies for film cameras are stocked as well, but the emphasis is clearly on digital items. Calumet also rents equipment — anything from lighting scrims to laptop computers — by the day or week.
