Tremendous store, with the dwindling market for camera and electronic stores, Mike's is a fantastic find. Knowledgeable staff, clearly they do their homework and are very passionate about photography.
If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere to shop in or even on line, Mike's Camera in Boulder is the place to go. I have purchased several camera's over the years from Mike's Camera in Boulder and I have yet to find a store that has the selection they do as well as the expert advice needed for me to take the best pictures I possibly can.
3/29/2015Please reconsider before using their repair service. The on camera flash was sticking on my Nikon D800 (Purchased From Mikes Camera) so I brought it into Mike's for repair. They quoted me $ 1200 for repair and stated the camera had "liquid" damage. I declined to pay the repair fee as the only issue wit the camera was that the flash did not automatically pop up. Every other function on the camera functioned fine...until I picked it up from them. Mike's Camera returned my camera damaged. Strangely enough the pop up flash was no longer sticking but the camera would not turn off unless the battery was removed and the live view no longer worked. The on/ off dial appeared to have sustained damage while in their care. Water and cameras typically do not play nicely together. That being said, the D800 is a weather sealed prosumer level camera body and mine had not sustained any substantial exposure to water.I returned to Mikes Camera the same day I picked it up and asked them to repair my camera to at least the state in which I dropped it off. They acknowledged that the camera was damaged while in their possession but claimed that the "liquid" damage would have eventually ruined the camera anyway. Mikes camera would not repair the camera and only offered a warranty if I bought a new camera from them to replace the ones they damaged. This struck me as an exceptionally predatory sales trick especially considering I paid more to buy this camera from them rather than Amazon in the first place.
Avoid at all costs! They will take forever to help you, push things o n you that cannot be returned & not work with your camera.Save yourself time & money & buy from Amazon. Wish I had!
