New Store Progressing on Schedule!

Our new store space is coming along right on schedule! We will be closed this coming Friday, Saturday & Sunday and on Monday, February 10th, we will open the doors to our new store!

This week, our Leica Boutique cabinets arrived all the way from Germany. The crates were carefully unloaded and unpacked and are now in the process of being installed.

Exciting times here at Camera West in Walnut Creek!

Container trucks lined South Main Street in front of Camera West Walnut Creek to unload the Leica Boutique furniture for our new store.

The containers of furniture were carefully unloaded from the trucks.

The Leica Boutique cabinets are prepared for placement.

Store manager Dan Leto (2nd from right) and construction workers discuss placement of the main sales counter. Note the two beautiful sky lights we will have to help light the store.

Hands On with the Sony A7

Glen Weinfeld of Sony points out some of the features of the new A7.

Thank you to Glen Weinfeld of Sony and all the participants who attended  a hands on demonstration of the new Sony A7 earlier this week at Camera West in Walnut Creek.

The greatly anticipated Sony A7 and A7r is the smallest and lightest full frame interchangeable lens digital camera and the participants got to see first hand this remarkable camera system.

We hope to have these cameras in stock in the very near future. Call us today to reserve yours!

The Sony A7 was passed around so everyone got the opportunity to shoot with it.

Most were surprised with how small the A7 actually is.

Glenn shows the group how the sensor size of the A7 and A7r compares with other cameras.

Glen also brought along many of Sony's other cameras and lenses for our customers to check out.
