Before photography, family memories were kept alive through annual reenactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of in-house photo processing at Camera Corner. This Groupon expires October 1, 2011.
The image smiths at Camera Corner's Digital Photo Café develop new, glossy prints from digital files and old-fashioned film. Technicians boot up the digital darkroom to print 4"x6" photos ($.19+ each depending on quantity) or sheets of eight wallet-size portraits ($2.99), roll out and roll up 11"x14" posters ($14.99 unmounted), or enlarge any print into a 10"x15" unmounted deluxe version ($13.99). The digital developers can also restore old photographs (priced by estimate), converting the unsightly creases from family portraits into lightning bolts shooting out from Grandpa's wizard cane. In the traditional photo lab, Camera Corner processes standard film into 4"x6" prints ($9.61 for 24 single exposures) or 11"x14" posters ($14.99), which can then be plastered over old posters or rolled up to amplify shouts at the personages on old posters. The lab can also reprint old slides ($1.49 for a 4"x6" print) and convert old negatives into 8"x10" prints ($6.95).
Camera Corner opened its doors more than a half-century ago, starting with just 800 sq. ft. and two employees, supplementing its growing audio-visual services with greeting-card sales. Today, the third-generation business has expanded to nearly 30,000 sq. ft. and bustles with more than 100 employees ready to handle technological snafus, restore and enlarge photographs, and rent out projector screens for pre-vacation family briefings. The knowledgeable IT workers—who count ten Apple-certified specialists among their ranks—equip clients with computers and technology from all major brands, including products such as the iPad and iPhone, and sweep in to rescue data after crashes or fix keyboards after soda spills. Their photo and video specialists outfit shutterbugs and cinephiles with digital cameras and repair cracked lenses for manufactures such as Sony, Kodak, Canon, and Panasonic. The staff can even help safely dispose of used and broken equipment, collecting old computers, TVs, circuit boards, and cameras for transport to a hazardous waste facility, to ensure old technology doesn’t wind up in landfills or hitchhike its way back home.
