the wiki for shop=photo "A shop dealing with photos or video in any way."
humm .. does not necessarily sell cameras ... ?
and 'develop photos'? errr .. that is now a specialist activity given the reduction in film cameras.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:shop%3Dphoto




Where as a camera shop does sell cameras... but may not 'deal with photos'
So someone has a redirect up on shop=camera... and the redirect says 'everything with photos'?

Would it not be better to call them what is most common?
I think there are now more "camera shops" than "Photo shops" .. take a look in a phone book?
  :-D	Mine has a redirect to "Photographic Equipment" !!  So what do I know?

Maybe the wiki page for shop=photo needs to actually include
cameras?
"Photographic Equipment"?
