I went in there with an old tripod and I had some missing parts so I hoped he could help me figure out how to work it. He absoblutly did not want to give me any help whatsoever. He then tried to sell me another new tripod that was very expensive. Way out of my budget. Funny thing is I did have money to spend and would have probably bought something but he was so disinterested in helping me out, I decided to go elsewhere. Could have done better with customer service at Best Buy and we all know what that is like. Not what I expected from a small local store. I won't be going back. As a business owner I know that service is a big reason why people spend money with me. They appreicate it.

Nice guy, great products, but just can't compete with other retailers. I really, really want to keep my money local and would be willing to pay a *little* more than what you can get from a big box or online retailer, the personal service would be worth it. But at full MSRP plus nearly 10% tax, I just can't justify it (a Canon 24-70mm/2.8L = $1190 online, no tax/free shipping vs, $1,382.85 after tax at SCC). If only he was willing to wiggle the price down just to be in the same ball park, but as of right now, he's not. I'll buy small ticket items (filters, etc...) but I'll continue to have to go elsewhere for the big dollar items :(

Bought my first camera there. It is an amazing little camera and I never would have bought something like this if it weren't for the salesperson who was very knowledgeable about what I should and shouldn't buy for my first camera. I am very technology illiterate and they taught me how to do basic things like look at the pics after I take them and zoom in on certain objects. Sounds pretty simple but if you've never owned a digital camera before who would know. Oh ya, great deals too!

I went into Valencia Camera to check out their prices because I like to buy from smaller places to help support small businesses and generally you get better service. I was impressed by their service and their eagerness to sell me a camera but their prices were much higher on the particular camera I was interested in than their competitors.

When my wife was looking for a new camera as a present to me she went to Valencia Camera. Although Valencia camera wanted full retail for the camera she felt buying local was the way to go.I was pleasantly surprised with the camera even though it was hundreds more than I had seen it elsewhere. However, when I went to set the camera up I noticed the time and date were already set. At first I thought how nice it was for the store to have done that. Then I went to take my first picture only to find out 45 pictures had already been taken. Apparently the camera was a store return and Valencia Camera pawned it off as new.When confronting Valencia Camera they insisted they did nothing wrong and would only offer store credit. As we had lost all faith in our local camera shop the last thing we wanted to do was to let them get us a second time. We kept the camera which lasted about a year before in went into a fatal system error.I truly believe Valencia Camera took advantage of my wife because she was naive about this type of business. Why else would she have paid full new MSRP for a used camera? I believe a professional camera store should protect the lay person as they should be above the knowledge of the Big Box stores.
