General Info
For more than 25 years, Ernest Camera Shoppe has been providing the Blue Water Area with quality products and photo finishing. It all began as a simple camera store in 1979 called D & I Camera. In 1984 Terry Ernest purchased the business and began expanding. More camera brand lines were added, then more accessories, and finally a 1-hour Kodak lab followed. As the industry continues to change and grow, Ernest Camera Shoppe has kept pace. A new digital lab now allows customers to either send their picture orders via the internet or bring in their CD or camera card and order their prints at the kiosk at the counter. In only a few minutes customers get REAL photos CUSTOM processed by our Noritsu digital lab. Ernest Camera Shoppe has not lost sight of traditional film customers. Our new lab allows us to crop, increase/decrease contrast, color density, making it the best system ever for making photographic prints. Noritsu Equipment Noritsu equipment is the leader in mini-lab technology. This innovative company introduced the first equipment to provide one hour photo finishing to the world in the late 1970's. The company remains a leader in imaging technology by providing the latest in efficient, dependable, high tech equipment. With their creative use of software and technological alliance with Eastman Kodak, they continue to provide equipment that produces high quality prints to our customers. As we acquire new equipment, we send our technicians to a Noritsu training center. This is to insure consistent and confident operation of our equipment so your prints will have correct color balance, be spot free and delivered when promised.

Expertise

Since 2011 I have been doing business with Ernest Camera Shoppe. Each transaction has provided sharp expertise, sincere service, and the work done in a timely manner. I have been greeted promptly and courteously every time. I use an old camera, and when I have experienced problems, the owner and the other staff have consistently examined the camera, explained the problem, and instructed me on how to work through that problem if it persists. Their workmanship on vintage and antique photographs is superb, the originals handled carefully and the copies sharp and clear. To be able to use a local vendor I find refreshing!

I thought I would check reviews cuz the guy was so nasty. Glad to see im not alone. Didn't buy right away because battery is not returnable. So told me fine im going to finish my lunch.$40 FOR A BATTERY EVERYWHERE ELSE IS $25. Wouldnt buy from him even if he was cheaper. Plus "new" battery in little plastic bag with no mfg labels.

The guy who owns this place is totally rude. I went there to get my Canon camera fixed, and he wanted 50 bucks just to look at it and not do anything. I bought the camera for under 100. And he was totally rude, and honestly quite weird. It's a tiny camera shop which nobody goes to and he's the only one in there. I felt unsafe.

TOTALLY rude over the phone.....didnt even get me in the store. Will NEVER go there and spend my money. Shame on them. Go to Kinko's, people, they know what they are doing and how to do it.

My first and second experience coming here was horrible, they are so rude. When I questioned their policy about having to pay before I could even drop it off and leave he shoved my camera at me and said "take your crap and leave and dont ever come back here again." SERIOUSLY? You expect people to come back after being that rude to them. I will never visit their again. ever.

I wasn't as important as his lunch !!!

I just started looking at DSLR cameras and stopped in to get some professional information. He shows me a $1,500 camera . . although very nice, a bit out of my price range. He didn't really want to show me anything else. I asked about a Nikon J1, he says it's a very nice camera and would probably be good for me. When I asked to see it . . . he closes the display case, informs me that he is short staffed (at this time, I'm the only one in the store), he hasn't had lunch yet and to come back when I'm more serious about buying!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS . . . blow off a customer for lunch?!?!?

I'll have to think really hard before I buy anything at Ernest Camera Shop . . and that is a shame, I like to support the local small businesses rather than shopping at the big box stores. I just don't know if I can after being blown off like that.

On the plus side, they still sell 35mm film and developing. The only other review was about photo restoration and it sounds like they did good work. This must be where they make their money along with SUPER HIGH END equipment, because I left feeling like a piece of trash.

Restored Pictue

I took a picture on my dad in which was as small as the picture on your license, I tried blowing it up myself but you could see scratches and white spots from it. So I took it in there and they restored it blew it up to a 4x7 picture for me and it looks so beautiful I'm going back to get more copies made for my mom to frame and give away for Christmas. They do such beautiful work..I would truat them with any of my presious pictures....they are honest and will tell you right up front what they think. and the price is excellent for the service they provide.



Thank You again Ernest Camera Shoppe your the best
