I've been a photo-gear collector for many years, and I know that sometimes an elderly piece of equipment simply doesn't work out. Was I disappointed that the Steinheil couldn't be repaired? Yes. But honestly, these things come and go - much more important to me is the fact that I had the great pleasure of doing business with Summer and with your company. I hope to have the opportunity to do business with you again, and I plan to tell all my photographer friends about my positive experience.

This is an outstanding camera shop with great customer service both in sales and service. I have purchased quite a bit of equipment from them and they have always been friendly and helpful as well as taking time to answer questions and testing. I have recently had my first experience with their service and was overwhelmed. My Nikon D5100 fell off a table and onto the kitchen floor. The fall caused the mirror to not raise when the shutter was clicked. I brought it in to the shop fully expecting to be without the camera for a few weeks and also expecting to pay quite a bit for the repair. The tech told me "You may be in luck" and 5 minutes later, I had my camera back and no charge. Absolutely outstanding. I highly recommend this shop.

I admit it....I've bought my share of photo stuff from the online stores. But I won't ever again......Robert, and all the other folks at Precision offer a level of service and advice that simply can't be matched online. Robert, thanks again for getting me my back ordered D800 and lens WAY faster than 3 online providers could. You made me a loyal fan!

Really glad I finally have a real need to visit this store after having been so familiar with it in Austin since my childhood. My mom used to go here when it was in a different location, to get her cameras worked on. Now, I go here to do the same. :)

The peep's behind the counter are great, very informed and helpful. We recently had a lens purchase experience. We bought a used Canon L Lens. We were worried that it might have scratches or not work like new. But after a few dozen questions and handling it, we were satisfied that we were getting a quality used product and that we can trust Precision to take care of us. (By selling only quality items and used items).
Thanks so much Precision! Just walking in, I get so excited. I can trust my experience here and know returning will just be more of the same. Highly recommend their used lens program. You can also resell lenses, as long as in great condition. That's a bonus!
