Success! Thanks for posting your review of San Jose Camera & Video. You’ve done the world some good today.

For a big-city camera store, head north

I've been a customer at San Jose Camera for over 25 years. I've bought cameras, lenses, tripods, flash meters and more. I bought my Olympus E-10 from them in 2000. When I went back four years later to buy my Nikon D2H, I had to drive to K&S in PA to find one in stock. Another time I needed some yellow and red seamless but all they had was white.

Agree with previous review

I would have to agree with the previous review. They have a very good selection, but their attitude is horrible. They make you feel stupid because you are not a professional photographer.\r \r I would suggest Keeble & Schuchat in Palo Alto. They don't make you feel quite as bad for asking questions.

One of the worst experiences i've had

I went into san jose camera ready to spend >1000$ on a lens for my digital SLR. When i asked to compare two different lenses the sales guy just shrugged then acted like it was a pain for him to help me. (by the way there was nobody else in the store except for 3 other employees who by the way were mocking someone who called in to ask questions) The sales guy told me he couldnt show me one of the lenses and i could... view more
