Battle Royale!

We received a shipment of the Tamron 150-600mm lens that every one is in love with.  After filling our pre orders, we have one left for Nikon.  So we have decided that we will have a Battle Royale for this lens.  Saturday August 16 at 4:15 if you are interested show up and bring your favorite medieval weapon, sign our waiver and battle it out against others to win the right to purchase the last Tamron 150-600 we have in stock for a while.

Totally just kidding.  I just wanted to make an interesting post.  We do however have in stock a Nikon Mounted Tamron 150-600mm.  It is available to any one interested. Please call or stop by the store to check it out and or purchase it.


New goodies and services

A few weeks ago all the sales reps paid us a visit.  Plenty of cool new things were ordered and in the store.  For those with a GoPro addiction we have Grips, cages and pelican cases for you.  Tripods, plenty of tripods.  Now may be a great time to upgrade yours or maybe get the Carbon Fiber tripod of your dreams.  We also have the thinnest UV filters on the market.  Great for your wide angle lens.  If you are a film afficionado, maybe the 4×5 Sinar is what you are looking for?  Just maybe!

It seems that there was so many new goodies that i can not remember them all, so I guess you will have to stop on by and see all the cool toys.

Back in stock this week.

The long awaited shipment of the Canon Power Shot G16 came in this week.   Considered by most as the “Professionals Point and Shoot”  this little gem will give you the highest quality image in the point and shoot world.  We agree.  We have been extremely pleased with all the G series  in the past.   Come on in to the store and ask Steve to demo the wifi and the wireless control from his smart phone!

One Decade of photo fun.

July 19th  was the birth of something special and I am not talking about the birth of Brian May from Queen, Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch or ER’s Anthony Edwards.  Back on that day in 2004 Peace Camera was born.  We have been your source of photographic goods ever since.  We are so thrilled to to have made it this far and we look forward to serving you for another 10 years.

In celebration, there will be deals on lots of items. We’re not announcing which ones, you’ll just have to stop by to find out.  If you come by between 11am and 3pm you can have a scoop or two of free ice cream!
