I have nothing but nice experience from Peace Camera especially Greg. I brought my D90 (not purchased from them)for some adjustment with the shutter and they fixed it for free. I ...


I've bought cameras, lenses, and accessories from Peace. They have a great selection and competitive pricing. The staff is awesome except for one of the salesman. I forget his ...

Buyer beware - no refunds even if they gave the wrong advice 12/20/2011

I too had a really bad experience. BEWARE of the return policy which is no returns no matter what. I bought a lens extension kit for my daughter and a new filter for her SLR. I brought the camera and lens in the day I bought these two items. The lens kit was $200 (for macro work). I showed the salesperson the camera and lens and asked if they would work with them. He said he was completely sure (like I was a dummy). When I got home and gave them as a gift it turns out they "fit" the Canon but the macro magnification with this lens is so close that you touch the object you're trying to photograph before it comes in focus. So they really don't "work" even though they "fit". I brought them back within 10 days and explained how they didn't work with the camera and lens and was told there was no return/refund, even though they had said it would work and it did not. I could only get a store credit to spend more with them in the future! They also would not take back the filter which was still sealed and said it was to stop people renting from them. I explained I could not have rented the filter as it is still sealed but they said no there as well - absolutely no exceptions. So don't buy anything there unless you are absolutely sure you want it since this is like a third world bazaar or flea-market operation where the buyer must beware and they do not stand behind their advice. What a fool I was. more

Not So Hot II 4/6/2011

I had the same experience as the earlier reviewer: the "I'm a serious photographer and you're not" attitude. I now go to a shop in Carrboro - Southeastern Camera Supply. more

Not so hot of a Camera shop! 8/30/2009

Unless you are looking for a hard to find item and know what you need, don't bother asking them for advice. They are like tough guys that carry cameras. I just wanted some advice, some thoughts, perspectives...didn't get it. They were too busy talking shop amongst each other. They seemed offended when I mentioned a better price elsewere, instead of telling why I should buy from them(like your free cleanings). I might have made the purchase if you told me this, instead I just read about it on your website. Another thing, if you read the About US section on their web page they do not mention friendly service, customer service or small town approach, they just mention experience. Maybe that is why you lack in this area. I hope this helps. more

A good choice. 8/3/2005

Peace Camera is probably Raleigh's best camera shop. They have a wide selection of new and used cameras in pretty much any format (digital, SLR, rangefinder, etc.) you can think of, and row after row and case upon case of accessories (flashes, cases, tripods, films, filters). I can also say from experience that you will be hard pressed to find a camera that someone in the store isn't familiar with, and if they can't fix it or find a part for you, they can direct you to someone who can. The prices are not Wal-Mart low, but then, you're dealing with a store full of people who actually know about cameras, a trade-off I'm perfectly willing to make. Service has varied from friendly to merely politely helpful the few times I've been-like any place that sells moderately to expensively priced electronic equipment, it helps to go in looking like you've got money eager to leap out of your pocket-but there's no snobbish attitude to put off amateurs, a problem at some specialty shops. more
