Last year we sacrificed a bit of floor space in the store and built a gallery to display some of our customers’ awesome photography work. We’ve really been enjoying everyone’s submissions, and we’ve even hosted a month-long show for the Raleigh Outdoor Photography Club.
Now we’ve decided to hold the First Annual Peace Camera Print Contest, with a grand prize of a $100 Peace Camera gift certificate! See below for submission guidelines and rules, and good luck to everyone!
-Submissions must be framed prints, preferably matted, and the frame must be no larger than 16″ x 20″.
-Framed print submissions must be dropped off here in the store by the end of business (4pm) on Saturday June 7th, 2014.
-No previous entries to the Peace Camera Gallery will be accepted, and all photographs must have been taken in 2013 or 2014.
-Employees of Peace Camera and their relatives are not eligible.
-Please attach a copy of your name, address, and phone number to the print.
-No gator board or Foam core mounted prints will be accepted.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $100 Gift Certificate to the store and will be announced on June 16th. The winning print and all Honorable Mention recipients’ prints will hang in our gallery through the end of July 2014. We’re excited to see your best work- have fun and good luck!

Today Sigma finally announced the price on this beauty. Priced at $949.00 this 50mm is quite a bit more that what Canon and Nikon have, but according to Sigma, they have Zeiss in their cross hairs. Images from this lens are trickling in so it is sorta hard to really see how it measures up. We are taking pre orders for this lens. If you are interested, please call the store
Intro to the Nikon DLSR Cameras, May 7th, 2014.
Intro to the Canon Rebel DSLR, May 14th, 2014.
Both Classes will be the very basics of the system, all the dials and buttons will be covered and how and when to use them to make wonderful images. The price for the Class will be $75 per person. Please call or stop by the store to sign up and pay for the class.
We have been waiting for a while but finally the silver editions of the X20 and X100s are back in stock. If you are looking for a small but still quite capable advanced point and shoot/ pocket camera ( this may be a tight fit for a pocket) these two ate the ones to get.
Come play and let us show you what you are missing.
Who is made of Money these days? If you are, please come on down to the store and buy one of every thing we have!
I am of the opinion that to make work easier you must have the right tools. In this industry if you are working, having the right tools makes your life shooting much much easier. Not all of us can rush out and buy all the best toys and tools for out kits. We for the most part have to work at it and build it up gradually. Case in point. Both Nikon and Canon have fast zooms. One in particular is the 24-70 f2.8 range. C and N have versions and you will have to hand over between $1900-$2300. In most cases you will be extremely happy with that purchase.
What are my choices if I don’t have 2 Grand? You could start with the Sigma 24-70 f2.8. Reading any review in forums online you will read lots of things good and bad. But in the end i think it equals it out, puts you right on the fence. Priced at $899 it will get you going and you will have all the benefits of what that focal length has. You will see an immediate increase of quality in your images. It will distinguish your work from most of your competition. Use it until you have the the big bucks saved up to get the Nikon or Canon version. Hey, you could even trade it towards any of your dream lenses on your list.
