A number of years ago we had a supplier who was a wonderful guy but it became increasingly clear that his prices were less than competitive. We asked if he could do something about that and he remarked "I'll drop my pants before I drop my prices." We weren't interested in his pants, up or down but the remark stuck with us. Long story short: we are dropping our prices. Lowering our prices is one thing but lowering our standards will never happen. We sell great equipment with the understanding that if you're not happy there is no deal. We're proud of the reputation we've earned over the years and we'd like the opportunity to prove it to you.

We accept PayPal exclusively!



Unmatched Quality at Competitive Prices

We’ve been selling quality photo equipment for more than 30 years, specializing in Hasselblad, and our motto: We speak Hasselblad fluently is no idle boast. We’ve earned a stellar reputation over the years for integrity and fair dealing. We put our good name on the line every time we make a trade and the repeat business this has engendered has been most satisfying.

This belongs in the I can't believe it category. In the last few weeks we've had three prospective buyers call and ask "Why are your prices so low?" Honest. We're not making this up. We were chided by one when we suggested we could raise the price if it would make him feel better. We'll try to be prepared for the next guy who "complains" about our low prices.

We’re pretty fussy about the equipment we buy, sometimes more critical than we need to be but it’s worked well for us and we’re not about to change. When we buy used equipment we seek out gear that has been gently used and properly cared for. We’ll let the other guys buy the well travelled gear that may function satisfactorily but is not nearly as rock solid as ours. When we describe an item as being pristine you can believe it. Be certain that the equipment we sell not only functions the way it’s supposed to (we guarantee that) but the cosmetics are darn well exemplary.

By the way, we offer advice when asked at no charge. (Some folks say our guidance is priceless but we’ll skip that commercial.)

And while we try to update our website on a regular basis please note that our inventory is constantly changing and a call might help find that elusive item that hasn't been posted.
