Waterloo's Family Owned Camera Store

BJ Photo was established in the 1970's as a staple photo developing retailer in Waterloo, Ontario. Our family purchased the business in 1984 and established it as BJ Photo Labs Limited, and we continue to run it to this day. Today we focus on high end professional services, and camera equipment.

We are Waterloo's Independent Camera Store with the best prices on a wide range of equipment, including Professional Cameras and Lenses. Located at 468 Phillip Street, Waterloo. Open 9am to 7pm Weekdays / 9am to 6pm on Saturday . Serving Waterloo region and owned by our family for over 25 years.

We sell professional photographic, video, and sports optics equipment, and are authorized Nikon Professional Dealers, Leica Camera System Dealers, Fujifilm Profession X Series, Canon EOS, Panasonic, GOPRO, and carry new specialty lines ( Ona Bags, Billingham, FLM Germany Tripods, Voigtlander lenses, Sigma Professional Lenses, Tamron Lenses). Also, BJ Photo offers a comprehensive range of professional lab services (including new Maestro Canvas Gallery Wraps, 1440dpi lab printing, and high-quality Passport Photos $10 for 2 images).
