Today’s digital cameras are light-years away from the film cameras of days-gone-by. They are fast, economical (no film processing) and sophisticated, yet easy to use.  At Jacks Camera Shop, you get service before and after the sale. You’ll get your questions answered immediately about the best way to use your new or used camera. Or lights. Or accessories. Even how to use your Smartphone camera better. Did you know you can use auxiliary lenses on a Smartphone? Who knew? (See picture below.)

“I’ve purchased all of my camera equipment at Jacks Camera Shop for the past 20+ years. I know I will be greeted warmly, and get the full attention of the sales staff when I shop there.  I often have questions about equipment I purchase…and Jacks Camera Shop always answers my questions. Correctly. The first time. Every time. The advice I get after a sale is extremely valuable. I don’t have time to search the internet for hours to learn how to do something with a piece of gear I’ve purchased.  They’ve always been there for me, and even recognize my voice when I call them on the phone, before they even know who is calling!  They take the time to know ME and my needs and I appreciate that very much. ” —Mike Rhodes, Publisher and Managing Editor, Muncie Journal

Jacks Camera Shop can process your digital camera, iPhone, tablet or other smartphone images into beautiful enlargements, suitable for framing. Plus, their in-house lab can take your digital photos and turn them into complete photo books and more.  What a great, personalized gift idea! With enough lead-time, you can even get your pictures etched into aluminum or wood, for a dazzling, memorable gift.

And as for photo frames, Jacks has an extensive assortment of picture frames and photo mattes in all popular sizes. Even poster size. If you take the virtual tour at the bottom of this page, you’ll see an entire wall filled with nothing but unique and stylish photo frames.  And don’t forget to check out their extensive collection of used equipment and cameras.
