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.”

Bob K.

“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.”
