Why Buy from Digital Camera Warehouse?

Digital Camera Warehouse was born from frustration after our founder, Tracey, had a really bad experience buying something as simple as a memory card. She just couldn’t get what she wanted, it was expensive and the staff talked down to her. Let's face it, no one wants poor customer service, which is why for over 20 years, our team has prided ourselves on delivering expert knowledge without judgement or product bias.


As a specialist in eCommerce photography, videography and accessories, we offer one of Australia's best digital camera buying and service experiences, without fuss or judgement.

When you speak with us, you'll be speaking to someone with some of the best product and technical knowledge, and they are all based right here in Australia. They’ve been where you are in your photography journey, with the experience to give the best advice. That's right, we are not just supporting people! We're photographers, videographers and creatives at heart, covering a wide range of videography and photography genres, including wedding, portrait, street, reportage, wildlife, sports, landscape and even astro!

What we advertise is in stock (unless the mad keen customers buy it all, but even then we’ll keep you informed and bend over backwards to get it to you). This means you get the product quickly, so there is no stuffing around, growing old and missing shooting opportunities while you are waiting for your product to arrive.

It’s our mission to help photographers and videographers, near and far, get the products they need to make sure they can pursue their passion. Just like us.

What is the Digital Camera Warehouse Culture?

We are firm believers in equality. You may have noticed that our brand colours are purple, white, and green, representing an inclusive ideology.

Purple represents justice, fairness, dignity and pride; white stands for goodness and safety while green represents hope and harmony.

As an Australian camera eCommerce and retailer, we ensure our customers have a large selection of products to suit their needs. Part of this decision journey is offering a culture that promotes fairness, understanding and inclusivity.

We treat others the way we would want to be treated because, at the end of the day, we are customers as well.

So, if you are searching for a camera, new lens or accessory from any of the leading manufacturers, Digital Camera Warehouse has the service and the best camera advice that puts the customer first.

Happy customers are being served in store


If you want the best range of mirrorless/DSLR cameras and lenses, the most informative customer support staff who really listen, plus the fairest deals, then Digital Camera Warehouse is the only choice. Come in-store, call us or send us a message on Live Chat so we can help answer any questions you may have. We believe there is no such thing as a silly or bad question. We guarantee you'll love the experience.

And finally, why are we using LEGO mini-figures rather than real people? Well, first of all we didn’t want to bore you with stock photography, secondly many of our staff are much happier behind the camera than in front (like most photographers!). And it just so happens that one of the owners is a massive LEGO fan. Each figure is carefully modelled on an actual person and their personality.
