    5 star review  CameraXchng rocks. They have pro level lenses that are high dollar and make them available for an affordable price for rental. I rented a Sigma 18-35 to see if I like it. I did and will be ordering it. Thanks Xcng!

    5 star review  This was my first visit and I am pleased that I stopped in to buy a new camera. I was immediately impressed by the large inventory of a wide selection of gear for sale and for rent. I think they take trade-ins too. Customer service here is top notch! The person who helped me was a pro and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend shopping here for your photography needs.

    4 star review  Excellent Camera store in the center of San Antonio. They have what you need and they work with used gear and rentals as well. I won't say they have everything but they will have something that will address all of your photography needs.

    5 star review  Such a professional and kind store. Even with the chaos of covid and Christmas, they were patient and willing to talk to an amateur wanting to rent gear. Highly recommend this place for rentals and purchases. 🤘🥳❤

    5 star review  I was blown away at how friendly and knowledgeable these people are about cameras. For a newbie that knows some stuff about photography I felt risky comfortable talking to Sam about a camera purchase. Even if you are just thinking about wanting a better camera, or want to rent a lens check this place out!

    5 star review  The tall guy that helped me (slight British accent) was very knowledgeable and patient. I’m a beginner and just wanted another lens for a camera I inherited. He helped me select all the accessories I needed but was not pressuring me to buy. I will definitely shop here again!
