Why Choose Us
Our clients love our fast and friendly service
I am extremely pleased with my experience at Photo Tech. I inherited a nice Sony ZA 24-70mm, which has unfortunately been sitting in a basement for the last few years. Over time, dust has somehow been introduced to the internal elements of the lens. This isn't usually something people get concerned about, but this was a lot of dust and it was affecting picture quality. I stopped by Photo Tech today during my lunch break for a quote. The gentleman behind the counter took my lens back for appraisal and came back 5 minutes later with a completely dust-free lens. I was in utter shock! I was advised that there was fungus growing in the lens, which I suspected, and that I could come back when I had more time for a full quote to remove it. In the meantime, I have a working lens and I have found my go-to spot for lens repair. I will definitely go back for the fungus removal and if ever I damage a piece of equipment. Thank you Photo Tech!

Great shop - fast quick and in a hurry. Was in Scotland the previous week and was spending time in NYC before heading home to Southern California, While in Scotland, I had banged my camera lens on a metal fence and broke my lens off my Nikon d3300 camera, needless to say, I had some camera short comings, heading into New York. I came into the shop expecting two things; slow service (if any) and to be gouged. To my surprise he quoted me a less than $60 price and it would be ready in 2 hours. Done done and done. Went to lunch down the street came back - the lunch was more expensive and did not make me as happy. These guys are the best !!

I had my Nikon D3300 repaired here, unfortunately it was out of warranty but because this location was listed as an authorized repair facility and was conveniently located, I figured I'd take it here. Everything was really smooth, and the price of the repair was fair. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Two thumbs up!

Fast, easy process. What I thought was a simple repair turned out to be much more involved. The estimate and repair took only a few days, and everything was repaired beyond my satisfaction. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Extremely pleased with the quick and efficient service here! Convenient location too. An official FujiFilm repair provider. I came in to fix my FujiFilm XT-10 (broken playback button + broken lens frame). They quoted me and gave me a "within 5 business days" estimate. Well it was done in 3 and lived up to the quote, no shadiness. The camera was cleaned and updated to the latest software at no additional charge. I would return, even though I pray I don't have to

I do not write many reviews, but I had to do it here. I came in to have my lens fixed, worried I would get ripped off. I was greeted right away by a very friendly man. I explained what happened with my lens and he began to examine my lens. He went to the back and 8 mins later he came back and gave me my lens back and said, "fixed". I asked how much and he said nothing. All they had to do was readjust a lever inside and there was no cost. I know now where to go to get honest repair in nyc. You now have a loyal customer for life.

First time I had heard of this place and it's services are amazing. I went in for a main board repair for my canon 70D and honestly I couldn't be any more happier. Real professional and quick. I give this place a 5 star and definitely will come again for future repairs. The prices are great! Thanks to the whole team for the services ! Happy holidays

A screw came off my display for my Canon G7x Mark II and brought it in. The guy behind the desk took it back and less than 5 minutes later they had replaced it. He also let me leave FREE OF CHARGE! If I get any serious problems with my camera later I will definitely come back and pay! Thanks guys!

I had an awesome experience today. I lost a tiny screw on the back of my Canon G7X Mark II, and Canon was only willing to let me send it back in. As I use my camera a lot, that was not an option. I found these experts via Yelp, and the reviews didn't lie. I walked in, showed them the problem. They found a comparable screw in less than 10 minutes... and the best part. DID NOT even charge me a dollar. Now that's a way to win a customer for life. Great job Photo Tech !!

Extremely happy I went to Photo Tech Repair. Naturally, I called around the city for quotes. Not only did they respond first, the next closest response was almost 24 hours later, but they had the cheapest quote, the fastest turnaround, and were friendly to boot. When I brought my camera in they said it'd take roughly 5 days to replace the shutter, but they turned it around in 3! Let me put that in perspective by saying other shops said it would take about a month to get the part and get around to it. Soooo, yeah, I'm pretty happy about my choice. Photo Tech has a new loyal customer/fan and I will absolutely be recommending them to any/every friend who needs their camera worked on

Phototech is honest, patient, and reliable. They have been servicing my gear for many years now and do great work at a fair price. They are also the quickest repair shop for Canon in NYC as they do the repairs in house. As a photojournalist I often need repairs done and quickly and the kind people at Phototech have always done their best to accommodate me with tight turn around times and demanding use. I'd recommend them to anyone student, amateur or professional. Keep up the great work!

After a trip for a week of hiking in a desert, our camera and lenses were laden with sand. For a reasonable price and quick turnaround, camera and lenses were cleaned and inspected and returned to us in pristine condition. They were courteous and efficient.

Incredible Service! I sent my camera to get cleaned via US postal service's aka snail mail. I completely forgot my daughter's prom was coming up. When I reached out and they finally received my camera, Pedro went into high gear. He got the camera cleaned and shipped in time for prom. Would definitely recommend.

I have gone to Photo Tech twice in recent months for Nikon repairs and so far, their service has been excellent. The first was a relatively straightforward but delicate task (clean a sensor) but the second was a dropped Nikon D810! They diagnosed the D810 within a day, gave a cost/time estimate and stuck to it, except having to extend a few days for a delayed part. I am very pleased to have access to such a professional group for my camera/lens repairs and maintenance. Highly recommended.

I stopped by with my Sony a 6000 with a sensor issue. 1 hour later I was on my way with the problem solved and the sensor cleaned. Great work, easy to talk to. Will be back again

They solved my gear problems a couple of times; very fast. That is great mostly when you are visiting NYC just for some days and you need a solution ASAP. Great work guys, greetings from Argentina.

You guys are amazing!! Not only did they save ALL the corrupted images from my CF card, they are friendly, efficient and it only took them a day! And the price is just right...not like some data recovery places who try to charge $500+. THANK YOU!
