Advance Camera consists of four full-time repair technicians that provide the best quality repair and maintenance services available.

There warranty is just like a manufactures warranty on a new camera, assuming sand, water, or impact are not involved, they stand behind our work.

The sales/support staff team of three, are always eager to help assist you with any photographic needs or problems you may incur. In addition, with technology changing every day, it’s important to talk with someone who knows the in’s and out’s of the latest digital equipment as well as film and vintage equipment. Based on experience from a repair standpoint, the support staff is able to offer suggestions and information on all forms of photographic equipment, which sets Advance Camera apart from the “big-box” store.  Click here to meet our staff.

To compete with the box stores, Advance camera has partnered with Amazon. This allows Advance Camera to sell all the same products Amazon does, at the same low online price, shipped directly to you. The only difference is, when you buy through our website www.advancecamera.com/sales you support Advance Camera.
