Couldn't find what I wanted. Asked the very helpful gentleman behind the counter. He found a discontinued stock item in the store room which was exactly what I was after, at a very decent price.

I recently went to Adelaide Optical Centre to have my film camera looked at because it was having some problems - it was looked at carefully and thoroughly on the spot. The customer service was amazing - they answered all my questions patiently and with a smile and were super knowledgeable and friendly. Thankyou!!

Bought my first camera from here 5 years ago and have been coming back since. Staff really look after you. Some great cameras in-store. If you're after film cameras, just be sure to check the central market store too.

Just bought a Skymaster telescope from here last week and they have an awesome range and great service. Was shipped out the shop door onto a courier very fast and the support during covid caused delivery problems was awesome at every stage. Highly recommended shop.
