  • Once digitized our processing equipment lets us restore photos with skillful retouching and editing. Whether B&W or color we can remove scratches and folds, undo fading and water stains, and correct the color balance.
  • We can also transfer 8mm and 16mm movies to DVD and mp4 files.  The same goes for video tapes. Your originals stay safe while you can conveniently view your movies and video tapes on pretty much any digital device.

Read from happy customers.

“I forgot my light stands when I came to Carlsbad for portraits. I was recommended to head over to this camera shop. Low and behold, they had to light stands that I purchased. Saved me from embarrassment. The guy there was very cordial and nice.”

“I went in to get my Canon 70 D checked out to see if I need my sensor cleaned. I didn’t get the guy’s name but he was really helpful. He told me everything looked ok. He went as far as blowing out any dust. Great customer service. I’ll be a return customer soon.”

Ben B.

“Went there to have a picture enlarged and printed. Pretty easy, e-mail the picture to them and they did the rest. Done in a few days, the pictures were beautiful and the cost little. Definitely will return.”
