    International Camera, anyone?

    I just stopped into International Camera at 9 N. Wabash for the second time today. It seems like a cool kinda store. Not the selection of Central, but they've got some interesting stuff in there. It's kinda a shame they're so buried away back there.

    Anybody have any stories? Experiences or the like?

    They sure have a lot of those Argus bricks. Jeez.

    I think there was a thread on here about a month ago about International Camera. I can't remember what it was about though. You should be able to find it by doing a search. Sorry, I'm not of more help; I live in Hawaii.

    I have been to IC a few times but no stories to tell. I did see lots of old dusty stuff laying around. Much for "fun" to go to Central accross the street.

    I have used them to repair several cameras. They are good people who stand behind their work.

    Just dropped off my Yashica Electro 35 GSN there. Good to not have to package off the camera to be repaired.
