I took $5000 worth of Canon digital camera equipment to this "authorized" Canon repair facility in to be cleaned and checked for salt water damage (1 camera and 3 lens).

2 months later I still could not get an answer from them about the condition of the camera and one lens. After numerous phone calls, many times no one even answered the phone. I went into a panic thinking they had closed and taken my equipment with them.

I finally got a hold of them and was quoted well over $2000 for the repair of one camera and one lens!!!!
I was shocked, new equipment could be purchased for the same price. When I asked to speak to someone about the damage and repair I was refused. I asked to speak to the owner or manager and was again refused.

I immediatly went to the store to pick up my equipment. After a very lengthy discussion with 2 people that could barely speak English I finally determined that the camera and lens in question had never been looked at by the repair department and they had no idea if there was damage of not. When asked where the quote for the repair came from I was told it was a computer error!

You can make your own conclusions, but I am certainly concerned about the honesty of this place. They also do not take credit cards - cash only! they are located in a very bad area of town. The store itself is a dump. Dirty and disorganized.

Please think carefully before you take any equipment there to be repaired.

I have been trying for in excess of four months to get my camera repaired. In that time I have had to take it in to them three times and have received numerous promises that the camera was fixed. After spending over $300 and being told multiple times that my camera has been checked out and is working properly they not have come back and said that they want to charge more to fix it. I intend to pursue legal remedies since they are totally unresponsive, have failed to return numerous phone calls and are unwilling to honor their commitment.

i called there to check how much they will charge for my camera repair. i messed up my memory card slot so i know whats wrong with it. i called them up. i asked them for the repair and how much it will be. i was told that i would have to bring it in for them to look at it. and it will cost me 15 dollars just to get it checked. so i told them bout their website over the internet and that it stated FREE ESTIMATES and why was i ask for 15 dollars just to check it. it was just simple BS. so i called Camera Care Center and the person who answered the phone was professional. when i told him that my memory card slot is messed up, he explained to me how i would have messed it up and mentioned the number of pins that are in the slot and that i either would have broken the last or the middle one. i was amazed cuz first the person answering the call was polite tone, had knowledge about cameras, explained me in detail about the problem and was the cheapest of all that i had got quote from. so if u need ur camera fixed don't waste time with all the people who promise u all this stuff on web and when u call them they don't know whats what. i still haven't tried their service yet, so i can't comment on that. i hope it wouldn't be a waste of time for me and that their work on my product will be as good as their service over the phone. for ur quotes call them @ 713-521-1441
Mr syed. tell them that u read this article over internet and thats what u chose to get their service so i might get my future discounts.lol

I went to the store after I read the reviews here, but it turned out to be a huge mistake for me. I gave them my camera for checking and they promised it would take 2 to 3 days to get my report. I waited for a week. and then they told me they can fix the problem, only that the damaged part is not in stock, so they have to order it. so i waited again.

i had no idea what had happened. after a whole month after i sent them the camera, they suddenly told me they cannot repair it. i have to send it to the repair center, which means i paid $15 plus a moth of time and i got nothing but knowing that part was broken and they can't fix it!

who knows if they broke my camera or what. i cannot believe i wasted a whole month!

their reason for not figuring out the problem earlier was that there's only one mechanician. so if you have your time and your nicest temper, please go to Houston Camera Repair.

Ugh!!!

I've not used them for camera repair, so I cant say how they are at that, but there are better places to buy camera equipment in Houston. For one, they are not as well stocked as Houston Camera Exchange or Camera Co-op, and on top of that they are understaffed. I've waited long to find they didnt have the product I was looking for.

I had just gotten a brand new camera with all the trimmings for Christmas when it suddenly stopped working. I took it to the Houston Camera Repair store they fixed it in no time. They did not charge me a whole lot either. It would have cost me a lot more to send it in to be repaired.

I can just go on and on about this place. Houston Camera Repair is by far the best place to get your camera fixed! They do an awesome job at the fraction of the price! The staff is absolutely great and they provide great service. The prices are amazing; sometimes I wonder how they even make it with prices so low!
