I have read all the comments on this review and had a completely different experience with this store and staff. I brought in two cameras and lens for repair and cleaning. I found them reasonable, friendly and helpful. My camera repairs

My camera needed cleaning and I took it to this shop. Unfortunately I did not research it first (Boo on me!). After paying the $40 diagnostic fee, I was later informed that my camera would be cleaned and that my lens needed

I called this company in an attempt to get my camera repaired and the lady on the phone was 100% combative towards me. I told her specifically what i wanted done; one non-electric part needed replaced and I was even prepared to buy it from

My Nikon d40x had a shutter error and would not work, I took it to camera repair to be fixed before my vacation to the carribean, they charged me $272 to fix it. Once I got on vacation I took only 3 photos before the SAME error came up

I agree 100% with the 3 out of 4 bad reviews. I was charged to look at my video camera in which the tape door wouldn't stay closed. He claimed he fixed it in which the total cost was $240. I used the camera and immediately after changing tapes it wouldn't stay closed again. The second time he claimed he fixed it. I used the camera again and once again after changing a tape it wouldn't sray closed. I took it back to him and he rudely told me that he would have to charge me another $40 to just see whats wrong with it. And did I mention rude as he was closing early and didn't have time to discuss it unless I was going to leave the camera.

I went into this place with a simple and straightforward repair to my Canon 40D. The metal of the flash housing was slightly bent and needed to be bent back. The guy behind the counter first says "sure, we can fix that". Seems like a good start... but then I was completely and rudely stonewalled by any followup questions. Basically they won't even talk to you before you give them $40, and I wasn't going to do that for a straightforward repair. I can understand a "diagnostic fee" for a more complicated problem, but this was a bent piece of metal that I could actually fix myself (and just might), which I told him. Any further attempt at talking to this guy was met with the response "that's our fee".

Sorry, but I'd assume you want my business, especially as a first time customer with 8+ cameras. But I guess not. In my book any repair shop that is unhelpful and wants money before even giving you the time of day is likely going to screw you over ten different ways before the end. Stay away from these guys!

I brought my Nikon D80 into the store for a censor cleaning a few months ago and was highly impressed with their efficiency in turnaround time as well quality of the repair. Even the pricing was excellent, I thought my camera would never produce the same images again, but it's been working fine for several months and they also provided me with an in-house warranty that assured me of their excellence in service.

Pros: customer service, knowledge of product, in house service

Cons: none; great location in market square

Unhelpful. Rude. Condescending. Fraudulent. I have others, but don't take my word. Check out the number of negative feedback entries they have on eBay. They swindle ... er 'trade' under eBay user ID 'camerarep'.
