Tips from Voters

  • I'm a professional music photographer, published locally in Dallas as well as nationally. I have been a customer of Ramsey and Gene for many years. All my gear comes from here for one very simple reason: They stand behind everything they sell, without question. As a working pro, things happen; lenses break, cameras get dropped, and their knowledgeable staff has been there every time to make sure I'm geared up and ready for every shoot. I cannot imagine taking my business anywhere else. You can't go wrong with Competitive.

  • We recently retired and was looking for a camera to take up photography as a hobby. Competitive Camera was recommended to us by a friend and we are glad we visited the store. Eugene waited on me and explained the features of the camera that was best for our needs. He made the shopping experience great and I purchased a camera that I am very happy with. It was great to have a friendly, knowledgable person waiting on me instead of a disinterested, untrained person at a large discount store. We will recommend Competitive Camera to all of our friends. Thanks Eugene!

  • It was about 25 years ago when I first visited the "old" location in Garland. I was introduced, by your very proud father, to this 12 year old "bespectacled kid". It was soon very apparent that you knew more about taking photographs and photographic equipment that most (if not all) of your customers. You were quite awesome! For the past 25 years you have given me and my company outstanding service and advice on our photographic needs. I remember a time (although I doubt you offer this service today) when, "on your way home" you delivered a new camera, and at another time a few supplies to my office in Richardson! You have carried on the great service, competitive prices, for which you father became so famous. Best wishes and thanks for all those years of help and assistance. R. Craig Jerner, Ph.D., PE, J.E.I.

  • Competitive Camera of Dallas is my only go to for all my photographic needs! Not only is their in store stock incredible, but the customer service is impeccable. The Service representatives are 5 stars themselves with a knowledge base of just about anything in their field of expertise and so very pleasant to deal with. I have NEVER had a bad piece of advice or less than pleasant encounter with any of the personnel. That is a huge reason why I shop and return to competitive camera anytime I need service, information, or equipment. They make my business as a photographer/videographer (Texas Red Productions and Photography) run without complication.

  • 5 stars given for great customer service! They took the time to help me retrieve photos from my camera's memory. I had accidentally taken pics without a memory card and the owners were super in helping me.

  • 5 Stars, every day, all day long! 1 - Father and son BOTH know what they're doing! 2 - The stock/inventory is phenomenal - for over 10 years, I have purchased every piece of professional gear from them. 3 - I recently fell and damaged a very expensive lens, and could not remove the broken/bent filter... Mr. Ramsey was very kind and successful. 4 - Walking into Competitive Camera, is like walking into a camera store for a true photographer. 5 - Research to determine what you want, and buy from Competitive Camera, you can't go wrong.

  • My Photography professor is the one introduced me to this store. I haven’t used or owned a DSLR except the one I have rented from the college, until first week of April 2011. I was one of the first ones who bought Nikon D5100 (it was unveiled on April 5th, I believe). Eugene, Scott and others have guided me through the stages of my novice photographer to be a better photographer. Now I own a full frame camera and studio lighting purchased from Competitive Cameras. At times, they have discouraged me from buying some gadgets, and I trust them enough to buy what they suggest me and it was never wrong. Eugene understands the level of my photography knowledge and helps me to buy what I need. I would recommend this store to anyone. Thanks, Sam

  • Great selection, very knowledgeable staff that is willing to help you out. After reading the reviews for this place I knew something was up -- some people have complemented the knowledge and selection while others have claimed snobs run this place -- I figured these were probably very smart employees who probably only come across as condescending if you don't know what you want.  Well, I'm sorry, but I wouldn't have patience either with a customer who walked in and wanted to buy a Canon full frame camera for $200 and a bunch of lenses for $25, either.  Get real, people. These guys have the right stuff you need if you're a camera enthusiast or professional photographer or filmmaker.  Their prices are competitive and if these guys know you know what you're doing they treat you with the respect you deserve.

  • Fantastic shop. Owner didn't try to upsell. Wish they had process more readily visible

  • I have been renting from Dallas Camera for quite awhile with no problems, and frankly, its been a wonderful experience. The owners were always incredibly nice and helpful and I love taking my business there. However, I needed a lens that was already rented out at Dallas Camera, so I decided to try Competitive Cameras instead. It's open on Saturdays, and they usually have what I need in stock. The pricing is comparable to other places in the area. They are extremely knowledgeable about their products and quick with a response to any questions you dare ask. They also buy used equipment, which is cool.
