so this is the distinction, selling also film and memory cards and prints?
The current definition for shop=photo doesn't seem to require these, but it
also doesn't have a very clear definition, at least it seems very inclusive
what could make us think about using a subtag for the special camera shops
you describe: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:shop%3Dphoto

Anyway, shop=camera (or whatever the exact wording will be), should have a
proposal to document the discussion and the use case for the tag.

> It’s not a portrait studio, he doesn’t take your picture.

that would be shop=photo_studio and likely also craft=photographer

> It’s not a camera repair only store (Like Kurt’s Camera in San Diego)
> He just sells camera gear. Mostly pre-owned. Only camera gear.

Still, according to what was written before, these are not places which
sell film cameras? Just photo cameras and photo camera lenses?
I guess there are even further specializations (digital photography vs.
analogue/chemical photography).

If these sell used devices, the second_hand property might also be of
interest: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:second_hand
