Since 1984, the knowledgeable staff at Tallahassee Photo has been helping customers take, display, and transform their photos, videos, and artwork. The shop's stock of photo equipment and supplies includes cameras and lenses from Sony and Canon, as well as Fujifilm film, Tamrac camera bags, and other accessories. Once photographers have snapped their shots, they can head to the website for online photo-printing services, or they can order photo books, greeting cards, and photo gifts.
The professional framers stock more than 200 frames for custom jobs. They can also inlay their work with custom-cut mats, including those with multiple openings to display shots of everyone in a family or show off a progression of a cat's Christmas sweaters over the years. They're also able to create frame-free canvas and gallery wraps.
For moving pictures, Tallahassee Photo’s staff offers video-transfer services. They use the same equipment employed by the Library of Congress and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to handle 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm films. They can also transfer formats such as VHS and Betamax onto DVDs or transfer old audio formats (such as LP records) onto CDs.
Though Matt Ham playfully refers to himself as a doctor, it's likely that he doesn't remember what a doctor's office looks like—he hasn't been sick since the eighth grade. Regardless, Matt and his team turn their technical know-how toward curing towers, laptops, and handheld devices of their electronic ills. Following a free consultation, the technicians fix such common problems as blue screens, virus infestations, and failure of on-off buttons to turn either on or off. The team has perfected its ability to repair iPhone screens in less than an hour, and it provides online progress tracking for computers requiring longer stays.
Ever since cell phones stopped growing plentifully on trees, the electronics doctors at Broke A Phone have made it their mission to keep handhelds functional. The facility specializes in brands such as Apple, HTC, Motorola, and Droid, and most replacement parts are available in-house to minimize waits. Clients can solicit an expert tech for a simple screen replacement, or more complicated services such as repairing water damage incurred while ordering sushi from the deep end of the pool.
At iDope Customs, technicians specialize in Apple-device customization, turning a standard iPhone, iPod, or iPad into something original. The experts can replace screens with custom color versions, or repair cracks and chips. They also fix faulty buttons, replace and repair batteries, and reverse water damage caused by dropping phones in sinks or making calls below sea level.
