I dropped my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ150, and it no longer powered up. I tried everywhere in the Phoenix area, (I live in North Phoenix), as well as Panasonic, and no one, including Tempe Camera, would even look at it; they all wanted to send it away, which would cost $250+ and mean that I would have to buy a replacement camera at $500+ for an overseas trip I was about to leave on. Finally, as my last shot, I phoned Arizona Camera Works in Chandler, and spoke with Morris. He said he would be happy to have a look at my camera.
I took it in and was able to speak face-to-face with Morris. Two days later it was fixed for $55, and I had it in time for my big overseas vacation, which saved me hundreds of dollars.
This was a relatively simple repair, but from talking with Morris it seemed clear that he has extensive experience and a methodical problem-solving approach. He will be my first choice in future.
assessent of video camera proved incorrect – I took two high def sony video cameras in for cleaning at the end of may before a work trip to taos, where i would be using them extensively. when i came back after a few hours to pick them up, i was told my larger camera, the sony z1u, had a broken pin wheel assembly and it would be too dangerous to clean it in that condition. the owner said he could order the needed parts and with labor it would be about $250. i may have just trusted him to get this done and paid and never have known the truth, but i decided to send it to a trusted friend who repairs cameras at mikes cameras in boulder. imagine my shock when i found out from him there WAS no broken pin wheel assembly and my camera was fine. was it a bad call and honest mistake or was i being consciously ripped off? i dont know, but i would not recommend trusting important camera equipment to this business.. if you have to buy a roll of film, maybe..ps. along with the other review, i would have chose 0 stars if i could have.
Totally Wonderful!! – When my 1 yr old Canon Rebel XTI refused to turn on I was really worried, it's a very expensive camera. I use it for loads of professional pictures, buisness and home.
I called around but knew this was the place for me when Morris (owner/operator) finished my sentence for me. When I said " It won't turn on and when I picked it up.." He said, "You heard a rattle." He knew right away what the problem was with out me telling him. Turns out I had 3 loose screws banging around on the inside and several more coming out. He found them all and even replaced one I lost on the outside and made sure they were all epoxied in forever. He gave me a 6 month warranty and did it all in 2 days time!!! AMAZING!! He is super honest and personable!! I trust him and you should too!
