I note on the shop=photo discussion page
Even though shop=camera redirects here, the description does not 
actually include selling cameras (or similar electronic photographic 
equipment). So do cameras belong into shop=electronics? Aceman444

So do cameras;
A) belong under shop=photo?
B) belong under shop=electronics?
C) or should they have there own shop?

I'm against B).
Either A) under shop=photo .. with major change to the wiki on 
shop=photo!!! OR C) new shop=camera.
