Gary Camera's Mission: Expertise, Service, and Speed

The year 2015 marks another milestone for all of us at Gary Camera as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary! We greatly appreciate the business of our loyal customers spanning over three quarters of a century!

Gary Camera is one of the last standing photographic retail shops in the Midwest serving Northwest Indiana and the Greater Chicagoland. We proudly host one of even fewer local in-store camera repair shops with over 40 years of technician experience on staff. Recently, we have begun hosting regular seminars to teach you how to become a better amateur photographer with your digital SLR. The following are 3 principles we aim to deliver to every customer:


Gary Camera continues to be a leader in photographic industry knowledge. We have staff with experience ranging from 20 to 40 years working with cameras while we continue to learn about our evolvoing industry every day.


Since the 1940s, our motto has been, “After the sale, it’s the service that counts.” When you buy a camera or any other item at Gary Camera, you can stop in anytime during our business hours to get help and advice about how to get the most out of your camera. The knowledge of our professional staff is meant to be shared with all of our customers. It’s how we have maintained our loyal clientele for so many long years.


We know you are excited to get what you paid for. That’s why we make every effort to get you taken care of immediately in store with what you want, not what we need to sell you. If you place an order over the phone, on our website or through Ebay before 2:00 pm CST during a weekday, we make every effort to get your shipment out that same day. We appreciate your business, and so a speedy transaction and on-time delivery is the least we can do for our customers!
