I found what I wanted on the internet, called it was in stock and the price of the camera was considerably less than I expected. Told Lou what I was looking for and he actually suggested maybe I didn't need to spend that much.

Using the Lumix LX5 proved the be the right choice. I put it up against my former point and shoot and the difference is noticeable. Thank you Lou for insisting I buy the case.
Looking forward to learning all the features beyond IA.

It really pays to shop in this wonderful shop. I usually purchase most of the specialty items on line, but once I went to the store to buy a minor item and was serviced by Brian, the junior owner. He is very knowledgeable and service oriented. I used to be an Art Director and have received a number of Awards for my photography Directions. Presently I'm a realtor and take photos myself. With Brian??s help I was be able to purchase the best camera for my needs: Nikon with two wide lenses attachments, as well as a powerful flash light and a few other very useful accessories. My photos stand out and are a big factor why my listings sell. Thank you Brian!

There are plenty of crooks out on the internet- many years back I bought a Canon Powershot G2 on the lowest place I could find on the internet and it came without all of the kit accessories and broke within a week- obviously having been a demo model. New York Camera always has the price right on target (with B&H photo some of the best and legit guys in the business) and the advice is bar none. It is a little obnoxious they do not display/demo cameras, but being a small store they can't to keep their prices legit and you know you are buying a camera that is brand new. I bought my XTi there and they've been more than patient to give me any advice I need (be it silly questions or pro information). The employees are obviously camera users themselves and will help you get any equiptment you need that they don't keep in stock. It's a small store for big services, so if you mind waiting go during the week or early in the morning to avoid crowds.

I bought some frames from them. They told me they had to special order them so I had to pay in full. I kept coming back over the next 2 weeks and kept being told they would come in tomorrow or soon. Then after 2 weeks, the owner says that they never could have made such a special order. He refunded me my money but had some serious attitude about it. I asked how the employees could have been mistaken for 2 weeks (lets face it when employees say they have confirmation of shipment and they are expecting it anyday. That's really lying not being mistaken). The owner's response was that I probably didn't make myself clear enough and it was my error !?!?

How the hell is the customer supposed to know what the store can and can't order and if they actually did?

Prices are ok for a store, but more expensive than what you'd find online. The employees were friendly, but obviously had no clue in my situation (although I believe they are knowledgeable on camera equipement, just not ordering and maintaining stock).

The issue is the owner. He's unbelievably rude. I was warned by other people in town about him, but still was shocked he would blame an ordering error on the customer.

Not going to bother with that store again. Not worth the hassle or bad vibes. Feel sorry for the employees that work for him.

This is one of the few remaining camera stores that is run by experts who understand the trade and know what they are selling. There is no comparison to shopping for advice or guidance at "New York Camera of Princeton" as compared to talking to some of the sales people in large chain stores. I don't live in Princeton, but find my "commute" to this shop worth the extra time whenever I need expert advice. I recently bought binoculars there and after all my questions had been patiently answered, I made a very satisfactory purchase.

Have always found this store to be a great resource for supplies, especially film and photo paper. However, when I took a digital camera there for a repair earlier this summer, they "fixed" it for me, but their repairs actually damaged a part of the mechanism on my lens so that it won't stay attached to the body and now I'm having to get a much more costly repair than the one I originally needed. Frankly, that's just not what I'm looking for in a camera store.

PROS: Great for photo supplies
CONS: Don't take cameras there for repair

For people like me, who are amateur photographers but want a really great camera, this is definitely the shop for you. The staff is so knowledgeable that you don't have to waste your time doing your own research - these guys already have all the answers. And, it even gets better since they sell all of their cameras at a discounted price. They also provide free lessons, so if you aren't quite up to speed on all the new technological aspects of digital cameras, they will make sure you understand everything. The selection is great, and if they don't carry it, they will order it for you without any additional cost.
