shop=optician   (optical shops, with optometrists - sells corrective
lenses/prescription glasses)

amenity=doctors   for full opthalmologist on clinics) - but if optha's
office is in the Medical Arts building of a Medical Complex (hospital) - no
need for tag.

nearest related official osm tag is shop=electronics for Digicams (i don't
know for the antique SLR cameras)

any suggestion to tag combined camera/photo, video, multimedia equipt (eg

on above link, hardware is described to sell bolts & nuts, paints, but in PH
local hardwares sell everything to build a house, tools, even construction
materials such hollow blocks. So for this purpose, i'm more inclined to
classify any shop selling none-automotive tools, more particularly made of
metal: bolts, hammers, drills & all it's accessories, gensets, grinders
(whether powered or not) as a clue that it's a hardware.

+1 for shop=hardware instead of shop=do_it_yourself
DIY's also sell gensets (but on limited stocks only - for purpose of

if it sells purely paint, then shop=paint

Before  AceHardware, Handyman, True Value, builders depots... professionals
& craftsmen go to Evangelista in Quiapo, and more particularly Dasmarinas St
in Binondo for special power tools, generator sets, welding machines,
plumbers tool, lathe, etc. These power tools & Portable Gensets & other
equipt are usually sold on the 'same' hardware shops (which are not your
typical DYI stores which sell lightbulbs, sockets, antenna connectors,
paints, wall fans & bathroom cleaning stuff)

besides Coleman's Powermate, is there any shop exclusively selling
commercial-grade portable gensets? (maybe it's just an exception) - no need
for a separate classification or icon
